My Special Gift


My nephew Seth is due to be born any day now..we are all anxiously awaiting his arrival. My special gift to this new family member is a quilt made by me. I have been working on it for about a month now, it probably hasn't taken me quite that long, but when my sewing time is limited it seems to take a bit longer. :)
I had some precious time to myself today since the boys are spending the night with Debbie Grandma and Papa..so I took advantage and finished the quilt today. This is the first quilt I have made, and I didn't realize how much I would enjoy putting it together. I have thought of him using it to have some tummy time..to use when he'll take a much needed nap..for when he is ready to roll over..so many times he'll be able to enjoy it. I know that it isn't a perfectly made quilt, but it is a one made with love, tenderness and joy. I hope that he'll have it for many years to come.
