Hi there! I hope you all have been well. I got some very exciting news on Friday. We had our ultrasound and found out we are having a little girl. I have never found out what I'm having before, and never thought I would, because after going through labor I think it is such a sweet surprise. But we were all there and I just had a very strong urge to know. This is probably our last baby so I thought why not try something different. It was just as exciting as finding out after labor. So now I have another sweet little girl to make dresses, dolls, purses and cute little quilts for. The first thing my son said when we found out was "Dad, we're going fishing!"
In other exciting news, my friend Tasha's new fabric line for Riley Blake, The Simple Life, has shipped and is in shops!!! I know most of you quilty people (especially those who love aqua and red) know who Tasha is and love her illustrations, embroideries and all the little lovelies she makes. I love this fabric line and I can't wait to get mine and make those sweet little girl things I mentioned before.
Fat Quarter Shop has generously offered to giveaway a layer cake of Tasha's new The Simple Life line to one lucky reader. Just leave a comment on this post and I will use RNG to pick a winner next Monday. If you feel like it (because I read every comment) tell me what you would make with this if you win, or your favorite girly name, or just say hey, or all of the above!
Have a great week! I'm hoping to be back Friday with the last part of the hand pieced quilt along, Binding! I finally finished the hand quilting and I can't wait to get it bound, washed, dried and crinkled!
