Morning Blog World!

So sorry I'd stepped out a bit. Things have been a wee crazy here in my humble abode. But I'm back....spending lots of time at my machine and ready to share!

Grandbaby boy Soren's quilt was just finished up a few weeks ago...and BIG NEWS...just finished a quilt for a new baby grandaughter!!!

I'm calling her ADWELIA TAMLAE.Pretty fancy huh? Her parents have decided to hold off telling the name,that's only making mildly crazy :), so I've come up with one of my own. Pregnant daughter Holly has heard the name so much she said she prayed the other night for ADWELIA.....so now I'm starting to rotate names--today Adelade! :) Her quilt is a surprise...so today you get a peak at Sorens.

I decided to make this a bit more 2 sided than maybe i should have. The stripe side was the original intent. Easy but shows off the fabric that his nursery was decorated in. The giraffe side was kind of made up as i went along. QUILTING time made that a bit challenging, but I'm fairly happy with the results.

Last picture....sweet BIG girl Emerson enjoying her pink pancakes from Valentines Day!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring...or at least not too much cold. I'm sooooo done with that :)

How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.

Hey ALL!!!

Sorry I've been gone sooo long. Life has just seemed so crazy and busy....i guess a new grand baby can just take you away from all the important things--like blogging and sewing!!!

Hope you are all having a simply fabulous fall!!

So blessed!

..You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

A Sprinkle or a Shower?

This weekend my middle, very pregnant daughter, was blessed with a sprinkle. Ok...I'm old. I had never heard that term before...but a lovely sprinkle it was. My oldest daughter explained that the first baby you have a SHOWER...the other babies...a sprinkle.

I've been sewing nearly non stop for weeks...pictures to come in the following days...but for today...enjoy the sprinkle!

Oh GOSH!!! you have to try these cake pops!(chocolate delights in truck!) They were a huge hit at the party. Daughter Cassidy pulled these off beautifully. Check out the Bakerella Blog for recipe and great ideas!

Skipping off to the beach for a few days! :)
