Busy Busy Busy

But not with much quilting!  This sweet, cuddly, smells-so-good, little baby boy has invaded our home with so much love and happiness.  He was born on August 29th and weighed 8 lbs 6 oz.  His hair is slightly red.  We have been enjoying his cuddles and I even love having him put in my arms in the middle of the night so Mommy can get a little sleep.
 Ellie loves having him around too.  She always wants to hold him and touches him so softly and gives him lots of tender kisses.  The other day it started raining just before her Daddy got home from work.  He ran in the door and grabbed her boots and umbrella so that they could go out and play in the rain.  They stomped through puddles and had a great time.
 I did get this Twister quilt finished.  I love the boldness of red, black and white together.  There is so much red in the quilt that I decided black and white squares around the border would be best.  Binding is plain black and the backing is black with white polka dot flannel.

All ready for 1 of my neighbor high school graduates this year.   It is hard to keep it folded up and stored until the end of the school year.     Whew.....1 down......4 to go!  Once I get the idea of what I want to make, the process goes quite quickly.  I just try to match the quilt to the graduate and sometimes it takes a while to be inspired as to what color and design matches which graduate.

Happy Quilting!                     Lynda
