a big thank you!

Look at this quilt!
Isn't it fabulous?!
I just adore the modern meadow line of fabric
--how did they know?

Thank you soooo much, Tethered Threads 2 Block Swap ladies!
Thank you all so very much!!
I was shocked!
And it is sooo beautiful!
I'm not sure if it was the hormones or the surprise,
or just the deep heartfelt thankfulness,

but I started to cry when I took it out of the envelope.

Quilters truly are the most generous people.
They've made me feel so blessed to be a part of such a great group of quilters.

I've learned so much more about quilting by being part of a swap.
These ladies are talented.
Little Peanut is doing well and growing so fast!
He's gained a pound in less than 2 weeks
and aside from being on a sleep strike last night,
he's an extremely contented baby.
You'll see more from me soon but for now I've got to go give a cuddle to my kiddos.

I have been very busy...

and thanking the Lord for this little bundle of cuteness.
Our new little guy showed up on July 23rd, 2010 at 12:20 am.
He weighed 7lbs 9oz and has big feet :)
2 hours of labour
(yes, you read that right)
and one push and we had our newest little man in our arms.
Our kids just love him!
What a blessing.
A lot of prayers, (my own and from others),
went into the making of a beautiful birthing experience.
There is nothing better than seeing the richness of the blessings the Lord doles out.
I feel great and am enjoying some downtime with the family.
but I'll be back soon with more details.
And thank you to those of you that have encouraged me the last few months.
It means alot.
