A Quilty Kind of Girl

Our new little bundle

Have you ever had a day that felt like you got nothing done? That is how yesterday began for me. I was up and at it, hair and make up done, ready to spend a wonderful Family Day with my shorties. By 10 am I was totally spent, and collapsed on the couch for a two hour nap.
I woke briefly at 1230 and made my way upstairs for a quick washroom break which I followed by falling into bed for another 3 hours. I literally could not even force myself to do a thing!
At 330 I finally shook it off and joined my sweet family downstairs for a mid afternoon snack. The teenagers teased me that I only came down because I could smell the nachos and cheese. What can I say?? A nine month pregnant Mama and food are pretty good friends, I am eating for 2 remember?

I must admit, I was caught by surprise at 4 pm when my water broke. I was so happy and relieved that I immediately rushed to my Matty to share the news. He was easily as excited as I, and we were in the car and arriving at hospital by 430.

Long story short, the wee man was born at 807 pm, weighing 7 lbs 15 oz, our biggest baby ever! Now since you’ve been so patient, I will end my story with these…

There’s Daddy holding the newest wee man.

Mama and Babes are tired after a busy afternoon.

Chubs is not too sure that he likes this ‘outside’ stuff.

Nighty night my Quilty friends… We’re heading back to bed. 🙂

Quilty hugs,

This is my girl. Let’s call her TS. Isn’t she a beauty?
My kid. :)
She is immeasurably talented. The kind of natural artist, who can pick up a pencil, and draw pretty much anything. She like to pretend she’s shy. We know that’s not true though.
Shy Ty.
She took a class. It was called ZenSuedle Wholecloth. The idea is to design a wholecloth using a freeform type of design. The drawing is done first, traced onto fabric, and stitched. This is my girl’s design.

TS takes art in high school. Her most recent assignment was a self portrait, to be drawn from a photograph. This is what she came up with.

So proud of you TS. You are a beautiful, fantastically talented young woman. I am proud to have you as a daughter, and am so excited to see you become the artist you’ve always wanted to be. Love you honey.
