A very long standing work friend of mine had her first baby at 45 recently.
He is adorable and she took about 3,000 photographs of him in the first few weeks of his young life.
He is very well loved.
She, Annie, had bought a beach house in Sussex some years ago, which has enabled them to move between there and the city. They have just gone to Sussex permanently to enjoy a seaside life. It seems we are all planning these escapes.
The house is a wonderful open plan place that has the beach and sea in its actual back garden! Wonderful. It is built in white painted shiplap and looks to have all the hallmarks of a designer’s touch inside (She is also a designer).
With this in mind, Max’s present for getting here safely was to be a hand made appliqued and light weight quilt/blanket with the seaside as its theme.
I am delighted to say that Annie reports it has become a much loved wall hanging and she was very touched that I had made it for Max. It was the only gift that he got which was made especially for the little man.
It is 6 months since I sent it off to them but it came to mind today because a wonderful thank you arrived. Annie may not be punctual but she still remembered.
It was a pleasure to make & I am so pleased they like it. Of course it would be best to see it in situ and we have been invited to go and visit with the ‘furry one’.
We must find time. It is a perfect opportunity to go for a long breezy autumnal stroll on the beach…….
