This is the week....and tomorrow is supposed to be
the day...but I don't know if it will happen...
My sweet daughter Jen and her man are awaiting the
arrival of their first little one...
We have been sticking close to home in
anticipation of the newest GB's arrival
since they live 8.5 hours away from us
and we will make the drive...
Did I mention that I am EXCITED????
Sew...I have been keeping busy with lots
of work...and some fun items to pack
up and take with us!
This is finally the finished little quilt for
my sweet baby grandson...
Remember this is the little quilt that I didn't have
a pattern - I only had the picture
of a doll quilt to go by...
I restarted this quilt and the second time
was the charm!
That stitching was something new to me..
Didn't really know what to use.
I ended up just using embroidery thread-
all six strands doubled.
I was a little worried when I washed it -
I wasn't sure it would just bleed all those
glorious colors all over that brilliant white.
I threw in a couple of color catchers and it did just fine!
I think all in all, this took about 50 hours to finish...
but it will have a lifetime of wear for my little man...
I have to say, I did become a little addicted to the hand
stitching and am excited to do more in the future!!!
My Jen wrote ever so lovingly on her twitter account
the following sincere message to her unborn son yesterday...
"Dear Riggins, I mean this with all the love in my heart:
Get out get out get out get out get out
