For Baby Lu

When Brenna was expecting Lucy, she picked out this theme for her baby room. It's getting close to time for Lucy to make the big step to her room so I thought I better get busy. I had picked up the material for curtains before she was born but just couldn't bring myself to buy the pre-made quilt. I just didn't like it. I don't suppose it really mattered if I liked it or not. It wasn't for me, it was for Lucy. I finally bought it and I am really glad I did. I had no idea at the time that no matter how much I wanted to "make" her a quilt that I would have no time to do so. I carried it around with me for a couple of months and finally a week or so ago, as I was laying in bed not wanting to get up and go to work again, I pulled back the little blankie that was Angela's when she was a baby almost 26 years ago. It was once a pre-made quilt and she loved it and now I have it by me every night. So I picked it up the one I had been carrying around for Lucy and worked at putting the binding on it. It took just a few hours and it is finished (as you can see, I had a little help).

WHY am I so stubborn? I never think anything is going to be good enough to give to someone. Brenna loved it and some day, Lucy will be dragging it around behind her and she will love it too.

How sweet! I'm sure Lucy will love it since you made it.

I can see the pictures just fine. ;)
