baby Bryce arrives. :) Amelia is sooooooo ready.

Finished the baby quilt last night and washed it because I love the wrinkled look. Used Orvus--no fragrance, very gentle, etc., so don't worry, Amelia.


I used an old memory card to take these pictures and found this doll that I made about 4 years ago. I made one for Mila and one for Ren's baby, so I don't know which one this is. They had really long arms and legs, and I made them from scraps of a dress for Mila.

I need to send the other baby quilt to Ren as she recently had another little girl, Chloe Elizabeth. I'm just waiting on the address as they've moved back to Louisiana.
O.K. , now I'm off on last minute errands, the Cottage, and I'll have to check my list for whatever else.
