Our New Addition

Iam so excited to introduce to you the newest addition to our family. I have had to keep it a secret since April... Now the big reveal... Please welcome our little guy... his name is Paxton and he joins me, my husband and a big sister. He was born on June 24 2008 and was 7.5 lbs 18.6 inches long. Special love goes out to our "belly mommy", because our little angels have 2 mommies... one grows them in her tummy and I growthem in my heart.

One Quilt for 2 Challenges

Just finished last night one of my Summer Stash Quilts. And yes, all of the fabrics on top and on the bottom except for the circle fabric on the back is from my stash.
The quilt measures 40x50 and is 80 5" squares with 40 different fabrics. Got the idea from Amy over at Happythings blog.
I am also using this as one of my quilts for the 5 before the end of July challenge.

shortcake sundress.
