She is here...arrived today weighing in at 7lbs 12oz. Charlize Lily Leeds. Hurrah. Jamie did a great job by all accounts...can't wait to get down to N.M. to hold that little precious in my arms..I'd like to say a great big thank you to all my children for giving us darling, precious beautiful grandchildren..all 9 of them now.
Here is a very small sampling of my fabric collection. It used to be called a 'stash' but it has long since outgrown that...I confess...I am a Fabric Collector, not, a fabriholic!! I collect beautiful fabrics like some people collect Art or books or stamps or whatever. I am a connoisseur...NOT a hoarder!!
Okay, so I was thinking of painting one wall in my sewing room this kind of light teal colour,
and some fabric I had ordered on line arrived and I fell in love with it so I pinned it up on the wall, and, decided I wanted that fabric on the wall instead of painting it, so Mark built a frame for me and we stretched the fabric around it and stapled it in the back and I LOVE IT!
Rylee sure finds something funny...I'm quite sure WE will find something NOT funny somewhere later on! She is wearing a little skirt and top I made for her and I crocheted the bag for her to carry her 'stuff' in to church.
This is Nautica's 'Chucky Face' as her parents call it...it usually precedes an unpleasant situation wherein Nautica thinks someone has done her wrong...it is hysterical...she is such a quiet and demure little sweetheart usually...and oh so cute.
After 25 years in the city, we purchased a beautiful place right next to the mountains...it is indescribibly beautiful and peaceful and we love it. I love being a mountain woman..I chop wood, haul in logs for the fire and shovel snow in the winter..and love every minute of it. I hold a quilt group here once a month, belong to a knitting group once a week, and bookclub once a month. Life it so so different up here and when away from the craziness of the world, living in harmony with the land and the wild animals..you develop a great respect for nature, life and God. We are grandparents to 7 beautiful grandchildren and are expecting 2 more additions by Sept. 2009. They are all the apple of our eyes. I love fabric, books, knitting and my family they truly are amazing people and I feel blessed to have them in my life.
