I'd like to welcome the newest addition to our family, Violette Elena Ledet, born Tuesday, June 9th at 7:14 pm! She's a beauty weighing in at 7 lbs 1 oz and 20 inches long. She and mom are doing great if a bit sleep deprived! Can't say I didn't warn you guys! Congratulations, Scott and Janie!
Here's the great old wooden file cabinet that my mom and I found at the flea markets while waiting for little Violette to join us! It was a whopping $7.99!! What a steal! It will house all of my fabrics and free up the kitchen table which is currently stacked shoulder high with plastic boxes of fabric. It's a little big for the space, so it might find another place in my house, but for that price, I couldn't pass it up!
After making Janie's diaper bag for her shower, her friend Celeste, due in August, seemed pretty envious! So Janie and Scott had me make one for her shower next month. I didn't use a pattern and it didn't turn out like it was in my head, but I still really like it! Especially the Kaffe fabrics!
On this great new chair that I've been wanting for YEARS, you see the package I put together for Susan in the Vintage 4th of July Swap. The pillow has the pledge of allegiance printed on it, there are 6 fat quarters of stars and stripey fabric, three repro stars like you used to see on buildings, two packages of napkins, a "vintagey" tin with red white and blue(and black?) thread, a few Colorado treats AND a-- pretty cool if I do say so myself --mini-bunting banner. I'm going to have to get some more red star fabric so I can make on for myself!!
I decided yesterday to knit Drew some socks for Father's Day. Needless to say, they won't be ready in time, but it's the thought that counts, right? Here's Tade "helping" me with some yarn of his own!
And, lastly, the selvege belt that I made a couple of weeks ago!!! I just love it! It goes with everything and fits around my hips!!
Have a great weekend! I have some very exciting news about a quilting reteat and Amanda Jean of crazymomquilts! Check your calenders for the first weekend of November!! And then plan on coming to Colorado! More details to come.....
