Another Lovely Day

This year is just too busy!
It has been non-stop for one thing or another and
no rest on the weekend either. 

I wonder if that is because winter just hasn't hit us yet...
on a normal year, it would be cold and there could be snow 
so staying home, keeping warm, and making soup
 would be about the only thing on the agenda.

Other than being in short sleeved shirts...
(I know you're jealous)
the real news of the week is
the arrival of this cute baby!


This sweet little one is Noah. 
He arrived on Wednesday! He is grand child #3 for us!
My stepson Matt and Cara are his happy overjoyed parents!

Underneath that cap... he has a full head of black hair!
I still can't get over how much hair he has!


I am  happy to get this quilt home from the LAQ.
 It hung at my LQS for a year or more...
and now it's finally quilted!




The binding will begin this weekend.
I love this fabric, Going Coastal, so much... and I am happy to say I 
still have a small stash of it.
The bottle cap fabric was fussy cut for the star centers. 
I wanted the quilting to resemble fancy kelp... kind of like those seahorses.

Round and Round by Thimble Blossoms is such a versatile pattern. Fun to make
and it looks great in any theme of fabric.
 I think 4 blocks made up in 
boy fabric would be a great baby quilt too.

Just saying.

Not that I need to make one more...
 wait... I always need to make ONE more, don't I?

oh... there is one more thing to share.

I was asked to be a guest speaker and to do
 a trunk show at a quilters retreat... 2 of them, 
that is hosted by Quilter's Paradise Quilt Shop.
How exciting is that???
I need to wrap my head around it and start pulling quilts out in preparation.
The first engagement will be next Thursday!
I guess I will get it all figured out while I am binding quilts this weekend.

Honestly, I might not get a whole lot done.
I am picking Evie up for a sleepover at Grammy's house tonight..
after a quick trip to the market.

Oops, gotta go!

What a wonderful event! Congratulations on little Noah. What a sweetie. Have fun doing the trunk shows, too! I recently presented 5 of my quilts as part of a "Newcomers" trunk show for our guild. It was fun and I really enjoyed seeing all of the different talent.
