First Survival ....one of the first quilts I ever made has never been washed!
Because it was made from Bonnie and Camilles "Ruby" line.
In other words ...... red fabric!
I was too scared and up until 5 minutes ago I was regretting my decision to wash it.
but I am now pleased to say, all is good.
As you can see, the colour catchers are a nice crisp white, well there were before the wash.
If I didn't put them in with this quilt all that colour would have been over all that crisp white and the light blue back. What made my heart beat even faster was whilst this quilt was going around in the washing machine I read over on Christine's Blog that a beautiful quilt she has just washed ran :( does anyone have any remedies to help Christine get the colour out? If so please pop on over and let her know.
I will never wash a quilt now without a few of these being in there with the quilt.
My second survival?
Miss Lily's first day of school.
So big yet still so little.
Feeling a little sentimental I have been back to the beginning of my blog and found theses pictures.
Some of the first ones I ever posted of my baby girl back in July 2011.
They really do grow up way to quickly.
