Stroller quilts

I have been woefully slow in making these - my friend had twins a month ago now (eek, how did that go so quickly) and as she's been supportive in trying to order things from me in the past, I thought I'd repay the favour by making a couple of stroller/cot/snuggly quilts

They're fleece fronted and have gorgeous cloud 9 rabbit design flannelette on the back, which I quilted together, as well as appliqueing each of their initials in the quilt corners.

I got this far in about a week, and then it took me the rest of the time to do the binding... which in the end really wasn't a problem - I just put it off over and over again! I'm really pleased with the way they've turned out.. I just hope the twins like them too


We're going on a chair hunt

Ok, so I'm going to oust myself as a lot of a geek here. When I was little, I used to love going to the library. I liked the sound that the books make when the plastic sleeves hit together (just me?!) I liked having my own little library tickets

I thought that date stamping books seemed like quite possibly the most exciting job ever.

But the other thing I love love loved about our library - apart from the parquet floors and the catalogue cupboards

(to this day, I kick myself to think that I missed the opportunity to buy one that was being thrown away from Bristol University for about £20)
was the orange plastic chairs in the childrens section. Chairs not dissimilar to these:

These cute round plastic little fellows. Please excuse the bad picture (if I could find a good one, then I'd probably also be able to track the chairs down!)

Now that I am not so little, the idea of stamping books as a job doesn't seem quite so alluring, but I can't get these little chairs out of my head! (or parquet floors for that matter, but I suspect the chairs may be more in my price bracket) I just have to get one for the Boy. I've spent many an hour scouring the internet for them, but to no avail. I know that they must still be made, because I saw them in a library this weekend. I'm under doctors orders to rest in bed at the moment, so my search continues, but if anyone can help me, please let me know who they're designed by/what the name is!
