Life Is Busy!

Here it is, mid-February. Mimi and Trey have their wedding scheduled for May 4.  I just today started working on Mimi's dress. Today's work went fairly well....getting close on the bodice pattern.  Lots to do in the next 2.5 months, as I will need to find or make dresses for myself, RoseE, and Gigi too.

I found a cute baby quilt pattern to make for Patrick....thinking "easy pattern, I should be able to get it done by February 27, when he is due".  But then came a phone call just after I went to bed February 2nd...Katy's water broke. Patrick Braden Jay was born at 8:58am, February 3, 2013....24 days early...he weighed in at 5 lbs. 14 oz. and 18.5" long. He is sweet and mother and baby are both doing well.  So now my plan is to get his quilt done by his due date anyway!

Tomorrow is valentine's day...I have to get up early to go pick up a car for my brother, and then go to a funeral.  After that I plan to do a bit on Mimi's pattern and then finish cutting and start sewing Patrick's quilt. I guess I ought to head to bed soon.

Since Christmas, I have quilted a few quilts, but I guess I don't know how to access the pictures on my iPad and get them on here....maybe next time. Too late tonight with a 6:00 alarm in the morning
