SQUARES #19-24!

"Good Luck"
The below squares were sent from my Aunt Pat Brodie. She sent a great booklet to help explain how to make the quilt! When Scott and I were home for Thanksgiving, I cornered her and begged for any ideas she had as she is an experienced quilter and I have never done one in my life! Thanks Pat for all your help! And we love the nice bright colors of the fat squares you sent!

Thought for the day!

I was just updating the blog- yes, which I know is long, long overdue!

I was feeling a bit quirky today so I thought I'd share a poem I have loved since childhood.

by: Gelett Burgess (1866-1951)

I NEVER saw a Purple Cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.

SQUARES #15,16,17, AND 18!

This is a beautiful fabric! And we love the sentiments!

We knew we would have to find something that really stood "fore" Daddy on the quilt, we are so glad you found this material! We think your play on words is super cute!

You know how much I have always loved Pooh!

As I have said before I have a frog fetish! I just can't help it they are so cute!

In Chinese culture the butterfly
symbolizes love and it is said if a
butterfly lands on you, you will have
much placing a butterfly
on the baby quilt, our wish is that you
will always be blanketed in happiness
and love....

Of course we couldn't leave out other fabrics
that would have meaning to our family and

Golf- "Fore" your Daddy and because
Mommy and Daddy are so "fore"tunate to
have you

Pooh-Because it rhymes with "we love you"
(and for my favorite sister, your Mommy,
whom I have called "Pooh" forever)

And Frogs-because we are so "Hoppy" that
you will be part of our lives.

The above wish page done is by my "favorite" sister Christina! Those of you who know us well, know that Christina is my only sister- it's a long standing joke in our family!

Thank you so much Christina, Christopher and Dillon! We love how you included the family photo on the wish page (Go Red Sox!) I love the idea so much when I put together the album with all the wishes I am going to try to include as many photos as I can find from the givers of the wishes!

-ps thank you for the beautiful silk memory album that you gave us to start the wish book!
