Celebrating Life

There are a lot of baby quilts to be made these days. Even though I've been sick and spending naptime actually napping, I managed to pull some fabrics for a new baby quilt. This one is for my former boss and her soon to arrive second daughter. It will be a pinwheel design with some applique.

In the meantime, we are off for a funeral this week. Hubby's grandfather passed away on the weekend so we are going to Kelowna to celebrate his life with the rest of the family. Babies are so nice to be around when there is sad news. Even being sick my girls'cries sound sweet to me this week.

See you next week.

Hey there! Hopefully you check back at these comments. I followed you to your blog... thanks for commenting on mine. I am super excited to get to know you and will come back to visit. I often feel lonely as a thirty something quilter who loves to mtn. bike.... plus there's that whole mommy thing. Amazing, but a little exhausting at times. Focusing on some of my own interests AND focusing on the kids keeps me sane. Hope that your little ones (and you) are feeling better soon.

sorry to hear of the loss of your husband's grandfather. I hope that you enjoy the time with the family remembering his life.

and those fabrics you've chosen are wonderful!

I am sorry to hear about your loss. I agree, babies are encouraging to be around in those times. You'll get plenty of snuggles, I'm sure.

I have to say, I'm still astounded that you get so much quilting done with such a demanding little person(s) in the house. I am still trying to figure out what I did wrong on my lovely blue quilt (the one in my blog header). Oh well, I have until Christmas...
