Playing Catch-Up...

This past Friday, Baby Girl and Spartan went to the Daddy/Daughter Dance. First they went out to eat for dinner, then danced the night away...well, at least until 8:00 when the dance was done!



It's amazing to me how fast she is growing up! She is such a little darling!

On Saturday I took Baby Girl with me to a local quilt show. There were some beauties there! Here are my favorites in order of preference:

This one was just so sweet and simple. It reminds me that things don't have to be complicated to be beautiful!

This one I loved because of the applique flowers. They are blanket stitched on and beautifully done!

How cute is this one?!? I love that the maker made things dimensional on this. The jewelry and watch are real!

I love the colors and the over all romantic feel of this one! The images are gorgeous!

This one was my favorite because it incorporated everything I love in a quilt! First of all, it's quilted! Second it has applique. Third and the biggest draw for me, the embroidery! The maker did an exquisite job on the embroidery! This one gets my blue ribbon!

Great quilts. I like the basket of lavender the best too.
How great that your husband takes his little girl out. My daughter is 23 now and her dad still takes her out on dates. So important for the girls to spend time with their dads.

Spartan is so handsome and baby girl is beautiful as always. You can tell he is so in love with his daughter, as I know you are. You're an awesome person, L. Keep up the writings. I absolutely love reading them. If you wrote a book, I'd be one of your biggest fans!
