A very special gift.......

It's very embarrassing that the postman has been at the door almost every day for the last 3 weeks, and it is also embarrassing that he knows me by name and has a pile of parcels every day. The parcel count today alone was 9 !!! A combination of wet weather and breastfeeding in front of my laptop has left my bank account looking rather sick and my internet shopping purchases getting ridiculous. Plus we have been receiving some absolutely lovely and special gifts for little Kiah.

One of the lovely things we have received is this beautiful play mat made by the lovely girls in the 'Bee seam piecing downunder' bee.

I have not been able to photograph miss Kiah on it until now as she had that lovely milk rash !!!! The play mat is made up of blocks that each of the girls contributed using the wonky star block.
It is just perfect - bright, cheery and fun !

Trying to get a decent picture of Kiah on it... big sister Isabella had to get in on the action as well!!!
The 2 girls together....

What makes this gift even more special is the fact that no one else in my family sews... so the girls never get hand made gifts unless I make them something ! I will definitely be telling Kiah how lucky and special she is to receive such a beautiful gift when she is older.
