I want to start this out by saying Happy Birthday to my Husband. He's a great guy. a terrific father who loves his children, and after all these years still has that look in his eye that makes my heart pound. Happy Birthday, Babe!
Here is a look, finally , at the quilt that I have been working on. I started this at The Harbor Star a year ago, and it was intended for a baby who never received it. Probably because I never finished it.
I quilted it myself, while at the farm with my friend who needed some soul-soothing, and even though machine quilting is not something I excel at I'm still happy with the way it turned out, especially once it was washed and all the mistakes were hidden in all it's crinkly splendor.
I used one of my machine's decorative stitches for some of the quilting, and I did some free-motion leaves on the diagonal.
I also knitted a couple of very Simple Baby Bibs that I found on www.knitlist.com:
I hope to get a pic of the new baby drooling all over them soon.......well, sometime in September, that is.
I've got other projects going, so I better get back to work. You chicks have a great day!
