Bundle of Joy and Summer Creations

Oh my, Little Esther, my grand baby, is growing like a weed!! She and her mommy came to visit today and I could tell how she could see me so well today. She just looked me over so well!! I also sang to her and she would be so still and listen. She seems to like music.  She also is a rooting, tooting baby!! She has some gas pains, but once she lets them rip, she sure feels a lot better!! I am so pleased that my daughter feels so comfy coming home and spending the day with me at least once a week I am honored to watch this little sweetie grow!! She is 3 1/2 weeks old now. I can definitely tell she is growing!!

Esther and her mommy, Celia.

I have also been sewing my Bee blocks for August!!

In the Coast to Coast Bee we were asked by Nancy to make Sparklette Blocks from the Fat Quarter Style Book from the Fat Quarter Shop. I just love how these turned out. I was also blessed to receive this book in June as a gift from this Bee. I just love everything in this book!! 

In the Stash Bee, Hive 8 Celeste asked for these Quasar Star Blocks done in patriotic colors for her to use in the Quilts of Valor she is making. I had so much fun making these, and that they go to Service Personnel that have served in the Military, who fight and protect our freedoms here in the US. I am honored to participate. 

For July in the Stash Bee Karyn asked for a bookshelf block and I chose to make this for her, a kitty in the shelf!! My kitties love to get into my bookshelf, so I couldn't resist!! 

My son's girlfriend, Rachael, likes blues and yellows so I made this wall hanging for her as a present. I love it and I am happy to report she loves it too!! She will be moving into her own apartment soon and says she can't wait to hang it up in her new place. 

I am also finishing up a quilt for little Esther. I was so sure she was a boy I finished the boy quilt, but didn't get the girl one done! Opps, I goofed on that one!! I will show that one when I get it done!! Stay cool and enjoy August!!
