Avery...what else?

Life... it's all about Avery... what else is there? He is growing so fast. His mommy and I took him to have his first pic's made yesterday. He did amazingly well... so wide awake and precious. His Auntie April went too and we all had a great time together. He left with his mommy and daddy for his first beach trip yesterday afternoon. He will spend the rest of the week there with his other grandparents. This boy is going to be so rotten! He took his new play quilt that Grandma made with him. I hope the weather is gorgeous so that that he can feel sand on his little toes for the first time ever! You guys have fun and we love you!

Avery's Quilt

I finally finished Avery's little quilt. I want this to be his "anytime" quilt. His mom can throw it in the floor, on the ground, in the sand.... anywhere she wants to lay baby down to play. The only thing I need to do is embroider his name and date on the back corner, which I hope to do today. It was a pure joy making this little quilt for our baby.

Look at who is growing up so fast! Little Avery is 5 weeks old and weighs 8 pounds 10 ounces. He is growing so fast. He has been over to visit Grandma's house a couple times. Grandma has an interesting time dealing with the curious dogs, but so far, so good. I'll be glad when Avery is big enough to show them who's boss! :o)

Gotta show you this fabric. This is actually a set of pajamas I saw at the thrift store yesterday. They caught my eye, but I really thought nothing of them.... until last night. For some reason, those pj's flashed into my head and I thought "what an awesome "boy" quilt". On my way to get my yearly mammogram done this morning (yay, me!) I stopped by the thrift store to get those pj's. The fabric is a nice quality flannel, pj's made by LL Bean. I sort of hate to cut them up, but that is the plan. Don't you just love this fabric? Don't you just love all my plans for "things to do"? I keep telling myself to stay away from Goodwill... I already have more projects than I will EVER complete. But something keeps drawing me inside the store.... addiction? It could be worse!

A Visit from Avery

This sweet little fellow is coming to Grandma's house for the first time ever.... tonight!!! He is three weeks old now. It will be interesting to see how the "fur" children will like him. They may end up in the garage tonight, if they don't behave. Can't wait! Don't you just love this picture? His mommy took it.... of course, if I had been there, I would have been pushing her out of the way and picking him up! LOL

Snow Day???

So, it's March 2nd... and we are expecting snow. Historically, NC gets some of its largest snow storms in March. The computer "models" can't seem to agree on how much, if any, we will get today. So today will be more like the days before sophisticated weather equipment, and we'll just wait, watch, and see! The good news is: I don't have to go to work today. Lately, I've been scheduled to work when all our snow storms came through. I had to worry about how to get to work. Not today though.... bring it on!!! I have food in the house and plenty of things to do! Sounds like a good sewing day to me. Happy Snow Day to you all!
