I'm an Aunt!

This week I became an aunt for the first time! Molly Virginia was born June 25, 2008. She was 8 lbs. 13 oz. and cute as a button. I spent some time at the hospital on Wed. and Fri. so I could see her. She's so adorable!
Thursday night I went to QCII and we had a lesson on making a bag to hold quilts. I got pretty far, but am not quite finished with it. I figured I could finish it tomorrow and get some hours in on the sewing challege that Jen and Jill and I are having! I have big plans of knocking the socks off both of them!
Friday my husband became the very best hubby in the world!!! He ordered the quilt frame I wanted! I'd been wanting a quilt frame for several years and he knew that before we got married. When we were on the honeymoon we went to several shops looking for the right frame. We don't have room for a huge longarm and I'm not sure that's even in my future, but I wanted a frame that I could put my Janome 6600 on. We found the perfect one, but they didn't have it and we didn't have room. So we decided to wait until we got back and got settled into life as newlyweds and then we would get it. He ordered it on Friday and I should get it on July 11th!!! I'm so excited! I keep telling everyone I have the most amazing hubby in the world!!!
Saturday I slept in for the first time in a couple months!! It felt so good... until my dad and then my brother called. So much for sleeping in! So I got up and we went and did some errands. It was a beautiful day, minus the haze of smoke from the Canada fires. We ended up taking a couple gifts back and then later went out and bought the printer to go with our laptop and several things off our gift registry. It was a long day!
Sunday we went to church early and then took a nap during the race. I cleaned and rearranged and got stuff back in order at the house. Paul did a bunch of yard work while I stayed inside out of the heat. I got the printer set up and Paul got it installed. We were both exhausted last night.
Tonight calls for a cleaning of the sewing room! I have to get it back in tip top shape, so I can start sewing and quilting. i'm bound and determined that I will beat Jen and Jill!!!
