New Quilts and Birthday Gifts

Well, my sweet friend from California, Laura K. sent me this adorable flannel baby blanket for my Birthday. I bawled my eyes out thinking about our little one running around with this. I can't wait to tell our baby girl the story of how I had one too.. for 21 years! I so want to thank you Laura for such an amazing gift. You are so thoughtful as always. As soon as I can I will upload it for everyone to see.

I also want to thank my very dear friend Michelle for her Birthday surprises. She sent me Chinese Lullubies by the Beijing Choir, the most beautiful melodies I ever heard. In addition Baby Einstein sign language for little ones, and I must say it's a genius idea! What a great way to communicate. I may actually try it out at work! Also a J. Johnson CD that I can de-stress by on my way home. You're the best!

Laura and Michelle have kept me going through some tough waiting. Two fabulous ladies and wonderful friends. Thanks to both of you for making this Birthday so very special.

The flower and butterfly quilt was made by Melinda (again I don't sew, yet) and because I just loved the fabrics and flowers, I asked her to make me a crib quilt. It came out beautiful of course. Now the most interesting quilt she is making is from the 100 Good Wishes Quilt Swap. I participated in a Chinese Province and Culture Swap and each square represents something very specific pertaining to those themes. It's set on a pretty red flowered border. Thanks again Melinda for your talent.

Congratulations Terri, you must keep me posted.
Thanks for the comments on the quilts. The only thing I can take credit for is picking the fabrics for the first quilt. Melinda put it all together. Wow, I should really learn how to sew!

Take care.
