Wishful Thinking

Today was my cousin's baby shower. Katelynn Nicole is the name she has picked out for her little on who is supposed to arrive next month.

This is my attempt at trying to get my string to be exactly the width of her belly - I was off by about 10 inches---at least she didn't shoot me for thinking she was bigger than she really was!

She got a little emotional when she saw that I had made her a baby quilt. You may have noticed that I haven't been quilting lately - well actually, I have been! I just didn't post any pictures on here because I know she reads my blog and I was afraid she would suspicious when she saw the colors of this quilt - the exact colors she has picked out for her baby's room. Her husband provided me with the colors they had picked out. Thanks Jon!

Still a little tearful---I was a little tearful too. It was pretty tough working on a baby quilt especially when our babies were due 2 days apart, but I knew she would understand the significance and she can appreciate all the work that goes into a hand-quilted quilt. I think she liked it :o)

I named it Wishful Thinking - for two reasons, hers and mine.



Thanks to Jen and Leah for hosting the shower. They did a wonderful job! I even found a 'lurker' at the shower - Jill!!!

What a beautiful quilt! I'm sure that was not an easy thing to make either. What a test of your faith and strength that you were able to rejoice for someone else.
Praying for you!

What a wonderful gift from such a true friend. God knows every wishful thought and cares more than we can imagine. He will bless beyond your wildest wish. The wait is the trial. Know that beyond the wait - you, me and all who ever hurt and wonder "why"? - there is peace and grace. Love you!
