Thank you all for the sweet comments and emails that were sent my way on my last post. They mean the world to me! I appreciate them and am working on responding to each one.
I have decided I will blog when I have time. Posts may be sporadic like they were last year but I really like to look back over the last four years to see how my life has changed. How I've dealt with the loss of Amber, Jennifer getting married and the birth of Maggie Kate. I sometimes have to go back and look for a recipe I posted because I couldn't remember where I placed the hard copy.
I really had a bad week last week. I'll share a little of it with you. My husband and I were going on a date for the first time in years. His birthday was the 6th and Jennifer had given him tickets to an event in Birmingham for Friday night. We left early and made a couple of stops before the concert and were "rear-ended". A lady decided to run into the back of my car. We were stopped at a red light when it happened. I was leaning over in my seat putting something in my purse and bam :( I am sore in my ribs and I have lower back pain. I just had back surgery for a herniated disc a year ago. The thing that was really disturbing is that the lady who hit us was so rude and just down right mean! How in the world people act like this I don't know.
Now here's the first quilt I made for Maggie Kate!
I just wanted something simple and easy to make for the quilt and chose a simple design. I bought the fabric a couple of summers ago and only had two yards of each print. The prints are from the Elm Creek books author. I can't remember her name but I love her books. It's coordinates well with MK's nursery.
I quilted it with this simple stitch I've seen on other blogs that quilter's have used and loved doing it. I will use this design again on other quilts that really need to be quilted! I embroidered a really sweet label for MK so she'll always remember who made it for her. Do you all know how much I love that baby? :)
I love keeping MK a couple of times each week and I see so much of her Mommy and Amber especially in her bright blue eyes. I can't believe she's four months old! How time flies.
Again thank you all so much for your kindness!
