Second on the 2nd

Grab button for Second on the 2ndToday I'm sharing with Elizabeth and her post - Second on the 2nd...where we look back for a second time and share a favourite post.  I decided to go back two years to see what I'd been doing that week at the beginning of August 2013 and yes it was a favourite especially because I was making a cot quilt for our first grand daughter and now I'm very happy to share that there is another grandchild on the way.
1st of August 2013
What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday

I have two work spaces this week - my desk where you'll see I'm in the midst of putting together a green floral card and deciding if the distress ink background paper I made last night should be the entire background or just a square section under the flower ...decisions, decisions ...just makes me chuckle that - spend more time deciding colours on a card than what's for dinner!!  Hubby is away again this week so I've had leftovers the last two nights, makes life easy :-)
I'm also pretty pleased with myself as I actually made my first Christmas cards, yippee.
And my second pic is of the dining table set up with my machine and a baby quilt cover I'm making for the new addition in Oct. I stitched up two fitted cot sheets yesterday morning and now tackling the edges of the quilt....lucky I didn't zoom along too fast yesterday as overnight I remember I need to fit in an opening for the quilt insert - maybe pics next week if all goes well.
So that's enough of me, hope you're all having fun at your place, cheers and thanks for taking a peek


  1. Robyn, Many congrats on the news that you will be grandparents again. Will you be making another quilt?

    Hope you have a good start to the week. Sue

  2. Yea you! Grandma again. I bet that quilt was very well loved.

  3. I'm SO glad you reposted this Robyn. It's nice to read there will be a new addition to your family soon. I was really impressed with the way you fussy cut the flower for the front of the card. Of course, I always enjoy seeing a sewing project in progress.

    Thanks for joining in again this month for Second on the 2nd. I like that you choose the same month, but in previous years. Never thought of doing that till just now.

  4. Congrats on a second precious grandchild on the way!
    Lucky little ones to have a beautiful handmade quilt made by someone special in their lives.
    Happy Second look and Happy August.

  5. Congratulations on the new baby on the way. I will be a Great Aunt in October too!!!
    That quilt looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing it finished.


Thank you for taking the time to comment, all encouragement and inspiration is very welcome. May your day be a happy and extra special one, cheers Robyn
