Here are a couple of pictures of the baby quilt I made on Monday. I hope  
the client comes for it this weekend. It's a quick one as I know she  
won't pay over 50? all she said was that she wanted a neutral quilt ...  
She picked out the lime green gingham from a dress I had on the stall  
but I knew I had very little of that left so I suggested mixing it with  
apricot . Fingers crossed she approves when she sees it.

Sometimes it's just as difficult to work to a wide remit as a very  
precise one. Mum did the lovely embroideries on her machine.

Thank you Beverly, I love that man in the moon embroidery, it's the  
second time I've used it and it's still great.

That is a very pretty quilt, and the man in the moon is really cute. Yes,  
machine embroidery is something great; I have to check myself really hard  
not to wish for the embroidery machine to go with my Bernina. Uh, I'd love  
to see the bunnies quilt mentioned in the comments on Facebook, though. Do  
you think there is a chance?

Thank you  Ursula,
The Bunnies quilt is my sister in laws one. Funnily we have the same  
name so confusion often ensues. She did that one for her textiles exams  
when she was in school. I will have to ask her to take a picture, she  
said mine reminded her of hers  and that she still has it.
She's not likely to sort pictures of it quickly as she's tied up with  
family troubles at the moment!! Both my mother and father in law are in  
bad health and she's the only UK resident child. DH has just got back  
from another visit there but Claire picks up most of the slack.

Really!?! Me too! My husband's sister is called Ulla, short for Ursula, and  
I am, too. Fortunately, she married a Mr. Weber, so at least there is no  
confusion possible. I does feel a bit strange, though, to end up with a name  
that 'belonged' to somebody else, and still alive, too. When we phone, it  
goes like this: 'Hello Ulla!' 'Hello Ulla!'. Like some weird kind of echo.

Don't worry, and, most important of all, don't hassle her.  I have to admit  
that I was a bit puzzled about the two Claires. She ahs so much on her hands  
that you'd better not worry her with my curiosity. If she manages to do it  
one day, fine, I won't forget, and although I don't mean to belittle her  
efforts for the GCSE - if she doesn't, I won't be angry. ;-) It just might  
have been nice to see... Anyway, hope your in-laws will get better soon, or  
at least mend as far as possible at their age. Good luck!

Very Funny Ursula nice to know there's someone else out there.
My sister in law has another name since she married but continues to use  
Claire OWEN for her own reasons.

When I married her brother she was only about 13 or so, so she became  
Little Claire and I am Big Claire, the funny thing is now we are both  
adult we both still have those names. Makes us feel young again I guess.
Incidentally and pertaining to nothing but this ramble on names. Just  
after I was married and working with DH in his family business, we had 3  
part time workers also called Claire plus myself and my sister in law as  
a weekend girl so a total f 5 Claires in one  small business I blame  
Gilbert O'Sulivan and his song

. My mother  thought she was being unusual when she picked Claire but as  
soon as he brought out that song the UK was inundated with Claires.
