I’m excited to announce that I’m going to be an aunt!  My sister (and her husband) are having a baby.  And I got to take the announcement photos.  Since they posted them on Facebook yesterday, I think it’s safe for me to share them now.

We had a lot of fun doing this quick little photo shoot, and it gave me an excuse to buy a chalkboard.



Is there anything exciting going on in your life right now?

    Felicitations! And don’t we know, that baby is gonna have the cutest quilts, bibs and soft toys the world has ever seen, courtesy of Auntie Andrea!

      Thanks Anna! I just need to stop being behind on my sewing. The whole moving thing has really put a damper on my productivity.

    I hear you! I finally got back to work on the Storm at Sea coverlet, I’m just going to line it with no batting as a summer bedspread. Dummy here–there are 42 large squares surrounded by triangles, so instead of cutting 42 x 4, I only cut 42 triangles! Back to the cutting board!

      I feel your pain. I kept running into the same problem last night when I was working on the pinwheels for this month’s Project Quilting challenge. I’d be short 1 cut square, which was fine until I had everything else pieced together and suddenly was going to be stuck with 2 matching HSTs right next to each other. Needless to say, the seam ripper and I spent some time together last night.

    All quilters learn the lesson: As you sew, so shall you rip!
