Still waiting......

Yesterday I spend the better part of the day and into the evening at my daughter's house. Little Miss Evie's due date was the 20th and today is the 28th and as you can imagine.....Nana is anxious to see her little face! It looked like she was going to make her grand entrance last night. Kristina's contractions were pretty regular over the course of about 3 hours they went from every 12 minutes to every 6 minutes, lasting about a minute each. Then at around 9:30pm Evie decided to take the rest of the night off. So I went home to sleep in my own bed. When I got home my hubby told me that there was a package for me on the kitchen table!
I love getting packages of goodness
in the mail!
 I was surprised at how quickly it arrived! The fabric for little Miss Sofia's quilt is here! Most of the fabrics are from Riley Blake's "Sugar & Spice" collection. I had to hop over to M & L Yardage this afternoon and pick out 3 more fabrics to
 co-ordinate with them. I felt like I needed a few more fabrics to make the quilt interesting.
 I like the way they all look together.
I was planning on taking a little cat nap after my lunch...
but I totally feel this fabric calling to me.........

I just found out that Riley Blake is having a competition for quilts made with their fabrics on their blog.
 Click here to check out the details.


  1. What a wonderful combination of colors and prints! It's going to be a beautiful quilt!

  2. you crack me up!! I've seen your stash, shop there first. LOL

  3. I was wondering where Miss Evie was. She certainly is taking her time arriving. I'm anxious to see pictures and if I feel that way you must just be beside yourself with excitement! The quilt fabrics are beautiful. Can't wait to see it finished. You will have to enter the contest.

  4. now I must wipe up the drool from my keyboard, those are beautiful. I have a couple riley blake prints in my stash with no project yet, but it will be a good one when I do get to it.
