A birthday picnic!

I love old fashioned toys and toys that are made to last. Matt and I wanted to find something special for our niece’s first birthday and when we were on holiday we found a fantastic toy shop which sold wooden play food. We had a brilliant time picking out a steak, ice lollies, an aubergine, half a tomato, a slice of watermelon, some garlic and lots of other treats! To go with the food I have stitched a play quilt which is a picnic blanket, complete with felt plates and felt cutlery. This quilt is ready for an English summer and has a drawstring which can be pulled to scoop up all the food into a bag, should a pesky shower arrive!
