Ths is a simple little cot quilt that I made for my baby nephew. I actually started making it back when he was a newborn, and had intended to finish it shortly afterward, but it didn't happen, (you know how these things are.) It sat on my desk for (quite) a few months and I finally finished it up in time for his Christmas present.
I wanted the quilt to have a simple and graphic feel to it, so I paired my 'climbing trees' print with a mushroom-coloured cotton flannel, some plain cream cotton and a matching navy stripe. So it really couldn't be a simpler design.
I'm not sure that my little nephew will be in his cot for much longer (other peoples' babies seem to grow so fast, don't they?) but hopefully he'll still be able to use this in the car and pram, etc. I made Keira one when she was a baby, and she still uses it as her 'blankie'- it's quite a good size for dragging along on her various adventures.

Have you seen this gorgeous printable Christmas stationery from Geninne?
And how about these beautiful mittens from Quince and Co (as much as I love our summer Christmas, I can still daydream about a handknitted season)
And something I'd make if I could find blackboard paint easily today (without facing the crowds in town) would be these great d-i-y mugs.
