I love you Jordyn. Love Sarah
When I was a little girl first learning how to write/spell, I left my parents and sister about 1,000 notes per day that said something along the lines of “I love you mom (dad, Amy). Love Sarah”. It was all I knew how to write, so I worked at it until I had it down!
I tell you that to let you know why, when I’m about to show you another quilt that I made, it looks pretty much like this one. And this one.
When I learn something new, I wear it out until I’m ready to learn something else!
Troy’s cousin is pregnant with her first child, a little girl they’re going to name Jordyn. Her baby shower was on Sunday (it was full of Cinnabon and cupcakes. A real temptation for someone who wasn’t eating wheat!), and I made a baby quilt as my gift. I also contributed Jack’s new favorite book that has become the birthday and shower staple gift from me.
|And before my friend Mary can make a snide comment, yes, I am 1,000 feet tall.|
I am not a girly girl, so even though I knew Jordyn’s nursery was going to be super pink, I just couldn’t bring myself to do an entirely pink quilt. The back of the quilt is a light pink, but I included some blues and greens on the front.
The fabric of course was washable. The mom of a GERD baby tends to be practical in her gift giving. This one was a lot easier than the king quilt I made recently. I hope it is something that will be well loved by both the new parents and new baby in just a few short months!
I love you Jordyn.
Love Aunt Sarah
Ha, I just now saw the post where you stated your height!
That is a very pretty quilt! So, your husband must be tall, too? My son is 6′ tall and married a girl that must be one or two inches taller than he is. She is nice, and that is what counts. You seem nice!
That turned out so cute! You did such a great job. Yes, stay away from King size! And yea, you are pretty damn tall!
