story's quilt

I can't believe it's finished!!  
My first attempt at quilting and I'm so in love with the end result. 
There are vintage linens from her great-grandmother's closet, her grandma's closet at the ranch, and her mimi and auntie's bed sheets all sewn in with love.  I'm already planning on making all my kids a quilt, that's how much I loved the whole process.  Well, okay, the measuring and quilting is VERY time consuming (and most of it was done at midnight).  But I loved working with the colors and patterns.

Of course I had to make her a crib sheet with  leftover vintage linens.
Of course.
Yesterday, my mother in love gave me a birthday party and   then I got to sew this little beauty up.
Oh wonderful day!

Today it's official.  I'm thirty years OLD.  Still can't believe it.  
Maybe I'll be 29 for a few more years...my mother always told me she pulled it off.  And she's coming to see me!!  She flies in tonight, so Story better be coming ASAP!!  Prayers are welcome in that department :)

The kids are all so excited.  They've been helping me clean her room and Astair even helped me arrange her quilt and sew some squares together.  Even Legend can say her name in the sweetest little voice.  We can't wait to meet her.
And can I just say I'm looking forward to labor because it means a mini vacation in the hospital?
Desperate?  Oh yes.

Happy birthday to you! You can pull 30 off for at least 10 more years.

The quilt is just lovely. I wish I lived near you so I could bring my scraps and you could walk me through the process. i'm so much better at hands on.

I can't believe it's time for Story's appearance! I know you can, but it seems to have flown by for me. ;)

Happy day to you.
