Some exciting news!

I am thrilled and delighted to announce that I now am an Aunty!! My dear brother and sister in law have welcomed a little girl into the world on Friday the 11th of June - Alecia Lily. Born by c-section due to a breach at 9:01am, weighing in at 8lbs3oz.

And I know I am probably biased, but she is so adorably cute. I'm not normally a 'mushy' newborn sort of girl - but hey. She's cute. Really cute. I am yet to have a cuddle of her yet (so can't wait!!) but so far mum and bubs (and dad!) are doing well!

Sorry for my lack of blog posts (once again.) But I've actually been sewing! Hurrah! Of course, I've been doing some sewing for my new little neice, but I am yet to take some pics yet.

My latest finish is this quilt, which I made for a lady from my church. This lady, Janice, was a particular great help and encouragement to me with making clothes for the kids in Indonesia. So I have been wanting to find a way to thank her, and what better way than a quilt.

It's a simple design, measuring about 45" square (forgot to measure it before I gave it!) I'm really happy with how it turned out - and I love the back of it. And the quilting.


Thankfully, Janice loves it too!

Hi Sam, it is quite a while since I visited your blog. Congratulations on becoming an Aunty. Beautiful pic of the little one! :-)
I really know what all of your Family are going through. My DH was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year, had half of his left lung removed, and hopefully has been given a " reprieve", as he was told on Thursday he doesn't really need to have chemotherapy. It has been a scary time, and all I can do is wish you and your loved ones all the best, I know you believe in the Power of Prayer- I have said many!! Hugs from Sandy.
