Delightful. I'm admiring your garden beds too. Your website inspires me in my gardening 'efforts'. Best wishes for the birth of your baby.

How nice!! This is the most awesome baby gift i've seen!! So many colours and textures- this is really from the heart! Have you planned any eco-friendly things for the baby's arrival? i.e. home birth, eco-baby products, cloth nappies, etc?? All the best for your upcoming arrival. What a lucky baby - with such inspiring parents and all the edible garden to roam and explore.

That is one gorgeous quilt! Little Eco got a few quilts that size from her nanna when she was born. They have been really handy. Perfect as a play mat when she was a baby. then as a cot blanket. and now they are used as picnic rugs for teddy bear picnics, as a car rug, doll blankets, and in all sorts of imaginative play. I hope you are feeling well. Looking forward to 'virtually' meeting your little one.

Lovely to hear you and Little Eco got so much enjoyment and use out of the quilts from Little Eco's nanna - there is just something so special about gifts handmade with love!

When we are purchasing any baby products then we should always be more careful about the organic and healthy. This will help people in getting organic, local, and healthy foods. It will help people in providing the exact nutrition to the children. This will help people in helping eco baby and helpful in people in getting more benefits.
