Waiting on one...




Well, it has been a while since I have posted...and I feel like I have been very out of touch as I haven't even been able to read email or any of my bloggy friend's posts so please forgive me if I haven't responded to either...

In my last post I posted a sonogram photo of one of our newest little grand babies...amazed at how clear the photo was...isn't it amazing?

Since that photo, our little GB's health has changed somewhat. Although he is still healthy, his little heartbeat is racing...racing way past what is normal. The doctors have admitted my daughter and have been giving her meds in an attempt to "convert" his rate back to normal. This has not been an easy trek for my daughter. What affects the baby, really affects her. She is such a trooper though.

They may, if things don't change for him, deliver him this week - 8 weeks early.
With his older brother's birthday this week on Thanksgiving, we are focusing on how great our God is and that He knows us, knows where we are and is walking with us every moment. I feel it and when I don't, I let my faith take over and I just believe it.

We have so much to be thankful for...our daughter's health is good, our little GB is at a good weight, and they are being taken care of by the best doctors in the world in the best place in the world.

With that and our prayers we will just be waiting on one...

{this moment} ~ A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

How did I miss this one?


Sometimes, weekends provide a little space for you to accomplish things that
normally you just don't have time to do...
For me this weekend, it was cleaning out the photos on my computer...

When it came time to download the new photos off my phone of the quilts I have
been working on or have finished lately, I realized that I had somehow forgotten
to post this little one...

It is one that I am sending to my nephew and his wife for their son...
You see, little ones tend to grow out of baby quilts...and have a need for a new 
size with some new colors.

I chose this fabric for all the bright and modern colors...and because I loved it so.
(insert...can't remember the name of this amazing line...UGH!)

Thank you suemac !!!  Juggling Summer by Zen Chic


Just a simple pattern to be sure...but one that will last through 
all the fort building, couch cuddling and car traveling I hope this little
quilt will be lucky enough to experience with it's new little boy..



This little quilt boasts a difference not found in any of my other quilts...
and I blame it all on Rita at Red Pepper Quilts...
and her GENIUS!






Sew...did you see it? Look closely...
I didn't bind this quilt!!!!

Rita's tutorial was just too tempting not to try...
and this was the perfect time and quilt to work her magic on!

It was a very quick work of fun...maybe that is how I missed showing it
to you...I had it all cut out, stitched and quilted before I realized it.
I think it only took a full day...

Anyway, it is finally off to it's new owner...
A Bit LATE...but that's what happens when you 
have too many irons in a fire!




Yes, they are BOTH off to their new little people...

With lots of kisses and hugs...

Have a good week everyone!
