It's a GIRL!

I interrupt this post for a special bulletin!   I NEED to share this VERY special Christmas picture....born on the December 28th ...our little Autumn!  FIVE days late but so worth the wait!


Autumn is absolutely beautiful...just look!  Did you not say "AUHHHHHHH"!  

And look at how fashion conscience she is already!!  What a beautiful hand-knit Christmas hat!   All of you knitters 'out there' who donate your time, yarn and talent...like Clubhouse DORIS, who knits hundreds of these precious hats every year to donate to Hospitals, we THANK YOU!  How SWEET they are!  Let me tell you, they are treasured and will be treasured FOREVER!  You are doing such a wonderful service by knitting these hats!

Anyway, it is always such a relief to have a family baby arrive safely...and such a blessing when they arrive with all ten fingers and ten toes!  And when they are beautiful...well that is just gravy...but then aren't they ALL beautiful?! :o)
 Autumn is our first great-grand baby!  As my husband says, we have always been GREAT but now we get to flaunt it! :o}}

Remember this quilt...well... It's time to release the HOUNDS!!  Now they have a baby to wrap around and snuggle!

 And they are very excited about it!!  Lazy but excited!  I could not get this fella to SIT and STAY!  Sounds like another dog I know...:o)

                                       

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Stitching!~P

  1. How very very wonderful Rick and Paulette and baby's family! D wanted to tell you that the southwest misses you, so much that a shaker was sent to make you feel at home. Ha. lOVE that dog quilt, I think that is going to have to go on the list.

  4. Congratulations and I love Rick's take on being a "great!" We are expecting our second "great" in late April, 2016. Lora Elizabeth is a doll except for those germs she passed around so liberally while we were in Montana! Have been reading your blogs, our internet in Montana was just too slow to comment! Cute little doggy quilt--I actually made a quilt and quilted it on the longarm--which by the way made me think of you--the air was blue in my quilting studio, that machine gave me fits, constantly shredding bobbin thread, really unusual for my machine but it does happen!

  7. Congratulations GG. She's truly beautiful and I love her name. I had no idea you had a grandchild old enough to be a mama. 💕

  18. Congratulations GG. I didn't realize you and Rick had grandchildren old enough to be parents. Autumn is beautiful. Great Grandbaby number 10 for us will be arriving later in January. But we cheated. We have a blended family. Again, congratulations to the both of you.

  20. What a beauty she is, and what a lovely name. Can't believe you are a great gramma. As others have mentioned, hope she lives close by. I'm sure you would want to give her lots of cuddles. How could anyone resist that sweet face. The doggie quilt looks great and will look so cute wrapped around little Autumn.
