Whew! I finally have a minute to breathe! Let me first reflect on the past three weeks, the happiest of my life.
Firstly D and I moved into our own place back on May 18th. It has been such an amazing adventure. I LOVE living alone with him. It's just that feeling of independence, I finally feel like an adult!
Second, D started school May 22nd. Not only that, but he's been getting A's on everything and he absolutely loves it! I am so incredibly proud of him and happy for him!
Here comes the big ones!!! Our engagement on May 25th! Wowza, I did not see that coming! Of course I knew we'd be engaged eventually, but not that day!!! It was the best surprise I have ever gotten!
Fourthly, babby Geo! Tuesday, June 4th George was born weighing in at 6 pounds 1 ounce of pure love! He is the sweetest baby ever! Congratulations to our closest friends Taylor and Suravi, we love you! By the way, being an auntie is SO fun. Spoiling Geo is becoming a new hobby of mine!
There's even more to celebrate in the coming weeks, such as the grand opening of the Hoppi Quilt Shop on June 18th, huzzah!
Now, to my Hands to Help quilt for Happy Chemo.
I couldn't decide which backing I liked better, so I did both!
A HUGE thank you to Sarah C. for putting on this amazing charity drive for all of us quilters. My quilt is going to go to a cancer patient who is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. I'm not sure what the final measurements of the quilt are exactly. I mailed it out yesterday and seem to have misplaced the piece of paper that had all the info down, including spools of thread used and amount of fabric! I believe it was around 48x50. The minimum size was 45x45, I made it small so that the recipient can actually bring this quilt to chemo treatments and snuggle up. Chemo isn't exactly the most comfortable thing in the world, so I hope to bring at least a bit of comfort to this person's life. I used 100% organic bamboo batting and prewashed all the fabric in organic home made laundry detergent. Being clean when you have cancer is kind of a big deal!
It feels so good to know that I'm bringing joy to someone who is going through something so horrible. I included a gender neutral get well card with a personal note from myself.
Now that work is slowing down, I should be able to post more about what I'm quilting!!!
For now though...
P.s I linked up with H2H, FMQ Friday, and Can I Get a Whoop Whoop , seriously though, can I get a whoop whoop for actually finishing this on time!!! ;)
