I gave you a sneak peak of the quilt I was making for my son's baby (due in June). It is now finished and I am working on the quilt for my daughter's baby (due in July). Also, we've got a messy home project going, as usual, so blogging has been on the list of stuff to do that keeps getting pushed forward another day and then another day. Siri is great, but she keeps reminding me of stuff I'm supposed to be doing every time I tried to relax.
My mother-in-law made quilts for all of my children when they were born and Puppy Love is the pattern she used for the first one. You can still buy these precious patterns from The Gingham Goose. That's pretty incredible considering we didn't even have the Internet when the first quilt was made.
You can see the quilt Grandma Bev made for my oldest daughter on a previous post about passing down baby stuff to my baby here. My son had the Cuddle Cat quilt, pattern also available from The Gingham Goose.
It turned out beautiful, NOT PERFECT, but beautiful and I know Ellanore will love it. Because she's going to be precious too. I hadn't sewn a quilt in 20 years, so I re-learned a few things along the way. I also bought a new sewing machine and some fancy new sewing tools. (I learned the new tool thing from SuperDave, all projects require new tools)
At a recent Baby Shower I got a picture of my three girls. My first born on the left, my baby in the middle and my most recently acquired daughter on the right. My son did good. Now we have two more girls on the way! I hope the boys in the family are ready for this, they will be outnumbered 6 to 3!
The Mom To Be approved!
I'm happily running around like crazy in several directions. I need to get all my stuff done so I can love on babies all summer! But I think I'll take tonight off now that I'm home and relax for a few hours. I need a little time off.
Much love and laughter,
