Someone REALLY hates thunder.
I finally have permission to say what has been occupying my time this summer: Sewing for a little one. Emily and Ryan are expecting our first grandbaby in February. It's been so hard to keep the secret. I think that's one reason I didn't write anything in June and July. I've been busy sewing cute little things, so I need to get the big-girl quilts finished so I can concentrate on bibs and embroidery and stuff.
I'll take more pictures later, but here are a couple of things I've done.
here. It's really easy to make, and once we know the sex of the baby, I'll probably do a bunch of them. So much more practical than the smaller bibs. I found the bear and trees embroidery design at Planet Applique, and it definitely makes you think of the baby's surroundings. Emily saw a bear walking down the sidewalk on her way to work one morning. I've about learned not to worry too much - just a little.
I love this cream and yellow blanket. I'll write more about it later. The quilt behind it I've had for years and will only go to a little girl. Little boy already has a quilt in the making!
So much to catch up with, including the fact that Sherry is also going to be a grandmother in November. We've had a lot of fun discussing those first ultrasounds and talking about sewing for the babies.
I thought it would be interesting to compare ultrasounds of both babies at 12+ weeks.

They look almost identical there, but I guess they all do at that stage. The next ones ought to be more interesting.
