New addition to our family, Emilee Mae was born July 8, 2008. She arrived two weeks ahead of her due date with only minor complications, all is well now and we are loving having her here. Things are very busy and not much sleep seems like normal already. There are projects on the go and we are planning and desiging some great patterns so keep watching in the next few months as things settle out in my house and I have the opportunity to put my thoughts to paper and then fabric. Thank you to all those who have helped support my family in the past weeks and months to come.

worth the wait.
Anna is getting so big, although in this picture she is only five months old. Speaking of getting big, so is my baby belly. The three of us, and Dad when he can, are hiding out from the summer heat in our basement, in Grandma's pool or at the lake. Little Emilee should be here soon so I am trying to get things tided up before I get to blissfully busy to care!!!!
I say that I can put my sewing down but even with Anna there was always a project on the go. Two little girls might just be enough, no who am I kidding, there are rooms to decorate and scrapbooks to finish, to much fun.
Anyways its done!!! Anna's Easter quilt, Easter Delight. I am quite happy with how it turned out. It is an original design, the appliques are fleece and wool felt and the quilt top is cotton. It is machine quilted, that is one of my favorite things to do, I was able to quilt it one afternoon as Anna had one of her marathon naps. The pattern is available at The Pattern Place web site. You can download the bunnies separately for now or the complete pattern; bunnies and flowers together. I am working on the pattern and written instructions for the quilt top, it will be available here on The Pattern Place blog when finished. I have so many things to look forward to, a new little baby added to an already wonderful little family is so exciting. I am thankful and grateful for all the wonderful blessings in my life. Happy Quilting
