You may remember that one of my little quilts focussed on a pair of little pink shoes that my daughter had when she was little (you can find the finished quilts so far here) and that got me thinking about other aspects of their childhood that remain precious to me.
One thing that we always did when my children were small was read them a bedtime story. My children were babies of the 1980's and I found myself thinking back to their favourites (the Ahlbergs were real favourites - Mr Creep was a bad man, Mrs Creep was a bad woman, Miss Creep and Master Creep were bad children - and Growler Creep was a BAD DOG)
and then back further to stories that meant a lot to me in my childhood.
So I decided to sketch my own version - Pooh Bear is lurking in there ( I used water colour and Inktense pencils from Derwent).
But now I have to work out how to transfer this image to a little quilt!
I do seem to be making life difficult for myself at the moment!
