Today I wanted to share a really special quilt with you that Ma made for little Es for her cot. I love this gorgeous Nursery Rhyme quilt featuring so many of our favourite nursery rhymes.
Ma lovingly hand stitched the entire quilt from start to finish and the detail is simply beautiful.
It features everything from Jack and Jill to Old King Cole
Little Bo Peep, Old Mother Hubbard, Goldilocks
Hey diddle diddle, the three little pigs,
and Mary had a little lamb.
It is impossible for me to show the details that has gone into this quilt, but here is one of many examples, all hand embroidered.
I wish that I could stretch this beautiful quilt so it could grow with little Es, but seeing that we both love it, it is staying put on her bed for now.
Thank you again Ma for making such a beautiful quilt for little Es it brings a smile to our faces every day!!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far. We had a trip out to the cinema last night to go and The Railway Man, which has moved me to the core. It is one of the best war movies that I have ever seen and I thought the cast, especially Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine and Nicole Kidman were truly outstanding. It was a brilliantly moving production from start to finish and I don't think I blinked until the last thirty minutes when I had to reach for my hankie and that was me lost for the remainder of the movie. I hope that in some way this movie can inspire people to drive nations to strive for a world with less greed and hatred that is perpetually fuelling violence all around the world. The damage continues long after the events and so does the hatred and pain. As a society we are all responsible to teach our children the values and benefits of peace and reconciliation, but for one we need to find forgiveness within for ourselves and others in order to move forward.
On a brighter note, wishing you all a lovely weekend and I will be back in the next couple of days with a very yummy and yes incredibly healthy cake.
