A Sweet Gift...

I am a slacker mother who should probably be on a large prescription dose of medicine treating ADD. I still don't have my little baby's quilt done. It is in a box cut up and somewhat pieced waiting for me to put in a few hours and focus. I was a big old lazy fat butt when I was pregnant, and knitting was exhausting to me. So I never finished his quilt, and now that he is 3 months old, I just don't seem to find the time. Thankfully a nice dear person made my baby this quilt.

This is my baby's first and only quilt. Made by a super nice person who knows who she is. Thanks and we love it! Weston is super snug!

I love all the polka dot prints. Who doesn't love some polka dots? The more the better right? And I think the super cute print in the middle with the little dear and frogs is a Michael Miller. I am not sure though.


And it is backed with the yummiest swirly green minky. I want to get naked and snuggle with it. TMI?


I love the color combination here too. Makes me happy...

And here is my little orange boy. (he had a jaundice issue for 6 weeks!, you have not seen a poor little heel get pricked so many times...he is better and pink and perfect now)

Ummmm now I just want to get my baby and snuggle on him for a few hours with the tellie...then I will lie to my husband when he comes home from work and tell him the baby has been horrible that is why the house is a mess and you don't get dinner...(TMI again? Am I the only one who would do such a horrible thing?) Hope you like this quilt. And the ADD must be genetic, because Megan and my Mother have still not delivered any quilts for this yummy baby!

PS We will be listing this at amylouwho, the shabby chic cottage , the pretty organized palace, the inspired room and my romantic home! We love parties!

I love your quilt! Your baby is DARLING! Snuggle time with my kids is like therapy, and anytime I can curl up with them for snuggles, the rest of stuff(dinner, house, husband) can just wait. :-)

SueWis said...

Beautiful baby... and quilt, too!

My babies were jaundiced too so I remember the heel pricking and laying them in the sunshine to get rid of it. Ahh, memories.

Diane said...

The quilt is beautiful. What a great friend to make such a treasure. Love the Michael Miller print. Saw some the other day and didn't know what to do with it... so thanks for showing to give me inspiration!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

What an adorable quilt. What an adorable baby!!!

Heather said...

That really is a gorgeous quilt, and your baby is as sweet as can be! Don't be so hard on yourself, though, Mom. He's only three months old, so you've been busy with important things. The rest will get done in time... ;o)

rita said...

Use any excuse you can to spend as much time snuggling with that sweet boy of yours -- dinner can always be out of the freezer and there will be lots of time later to clean house.

My what a dear little baby! ~ And that quilt; adorable!~ I especially love the colours!..,

As a childless woman, (though married to my sweetie of a husband for 27 years), I never, ever cease to drink in the wonderment and preciousness of new babies! All the joy that your little bundle of joy brings, and all that he will be to you and your family as he grows!

~ I'm "misty eyed", yet sincerely sooo happy for every new mom; and in this case my dear,that new mom is you!

~All the best!.., What a treasure from heaven!

Cheers from Silken Purse

2sisters said...

I would NEVER take a snuggle break and then lie about it (read dripping with sarcasm). A mama's got a right to snuggle as much as she wants!!!

Nina... said...
