This morning I started making a hippo playmat for my friend, Von, who is pregnant and ready to pop next month. I remember now why I have been putting off making this: there are just so many parts! So many liitle bits to sew! It shouldn't be too bad because it's on a large scale (130 x 100 cm). There are about 20 pattern pieces for this. You can see I wouldn't make a very good quilter!
