This little quilt made its way to a baby boy born on Friday! The baby shower for his mom took place on Saturday, but since she and the impatient little man who had decided to come early were still in the hospital, they were not able to attend. The quality of this photo is not great, it was a cloudy, rainy day.
This picture is before it was trimmed and bound, and you can see the colors a little better. The backing is a solid blue soft flannel. It should be big enough for young Daniel Roy to enjoy for some years to come. He is already a charmer from the pictures we've seen.
This is a teaser of the stack of purple strips I showed in my last post all sewn together, but from the "wrong" side. I ended up swapping one of the strip sets for a different fabric I think works better with the others. I'll post again soon with the completed project, just have to get the binding sewn on!
We've had some very nice Spring weather here lately. There's been rain, but not excessively, just exactly what the slowly coming back to life again plants and flowers crave. One of orchids inside has decided to come into bloom, too. There's Chloe inspecting it in the center right photo. Cats always have to be a part of everything, don't they? If you look on the bottom left, you'll see our neighbor's cat overseeing Marilyn (our last remaining chicken) at her work in the garden. Thank God, there's always something to laugh about around here!
Speaking of which, I must show you this shot of Buddy. He was patiently keeping watch over me, but got so tired, he had to lean against that door frame to hold his head up! I do love that dog!
Mr. Muddling and I have almost recovered from an unpleasant little upper respiratory thing that dared to attack us over the past week. We are both SO glad to be back feeling good again!
I hope you've had a good week, with plenty of things to make you laugh and make you happy!
Hugs and kisses,
