We Are Having a .............................

BOY!!!!!
Yipee!!! Bring on all the boy stuff! Megan came in to work on Wednesday with her friend Adrianna to pick out some fabric for crib bumpers and a quilt for the crib. No coaching from me either.....can you believe it, polka dots and rick rack. Yipee again :-)! She wants the strip quilt from that Cotton Way pattern. It will be really cute with the polka dots, and so pretty with the soft yellow. I can't wait to get started and to see that grandbaby in person!!

Today was a good day, mainly because I got the zoo quilt
done. Still not happy with my fabric choices, but it is done! Tonight I will piece the back and then off to be quilted. On my way to hanging the quilt on the fence to take the picture I noticed a lizard in the deep end of the pool. He was still moving which was really hard to believe. I got out the pool scoop and pole, and scooped him up and took him over to some bushes. A proud moment....I had saved a lizards life. Alert the media. I am sure the paper will be here any moment to take my picture......then all of a sudden while I was basking in my glory I got stung by a bee! Would that be considered instant Karma?! :-)!!! Good to report the lizard is doing well and was last spotted soaking up some sun!

Also finished up a little quilt using ME charms. Such
an easy little quilt, and just love those
yo, yo flowers! The border is from the Swell line, but I think it goes really cute with the charms.

The computer is still not behaving, but at least tonight I am able to post. Last night it was a no go, and boy I have missed my blogging. Hope that all of you have had some good quilting time this week and that your computers are behaving!

I love that little ME quilt!!! I mixed ME into my Swell border too, they really do coordinate well. I'm glad you finished your zoo quilt, I still say I think it turned out cute! And how appropriate that you saved a lizard while hanging a zoo quilt..lol!!!

I really like your zoo quilt. I think the colors are great! Save a lizard, he eats a mosquito I think, lol, and that is good! And your ME quilt is really cute! Good work all the way around!

Nan said...

Congratulations, Grandmama!!!! Cute quilt and fabric you will be making! I really like your zoo quilt - it's beautiful! You're wonderful for saving the lizard, too - the bee sting was extra credit, I guess. As the hubby says, "no good deed goes unpunished". I love the little quilt with the ME fabric. I bought the kit with the Swell fabric.
Happy Easter to you and the family, Cheryl!!
