My Creative Space - A Little Ray of Sunshine ♪

♪ A little ray of sunshine...has come into the world. ♪

♪ A little ray of sunshine...in the shape of a girl. ♪

♪ She can make you feel good..she can make you feel that it's all worthwhile...only by her smile. ♪


This song was chosen for me by my own Papa bear when I was born and it has been the tune I've hummed over and over whilst stitching together the vintage sheet top for mon petit poppet's big girl bed quilt. I have heard it a million times and it never fails to make me smile..and get a wee bit misty eyed.




Much love to you my girl, and to my wonderful dad (who had a very similar moustache and beard combo at the time of my birth...trés chic!)

Creative magic at work here.

Beautiful quilt!

And I love that song.. We actually made a video for Sophie's 3rd birthday to that song! It was made from all the best photos of her, from birth until her 3rd birthday.

Hope you are well Xx

Gorgeous, gorgeous quilt. I am slowly building my stash to try and tackle one of these for Liongirl. Your colour and pattern combos are lovely, that poppet is the luckiest girl in the world. melx
