1 down!

First of all,
I want to say a huge
to everyone who sent me emails and left comments regarding my last post.
It means the world to me!
I really believe that women and Mother's alike should be 
a source of support and respect for one another.
Your kindness certainly kicked me out of the funk I was in.

thank you! thank you! thank you!

Onto other news, 
I'm back from vacation and I'm ready to work!
I have finished one of several baby quilts that need to be made...

It turns out that I did have enough Running Stitches to do the binding.
Although, I didn't realize that until I had twiddled my thumbs 
for a week waiting for more to turn up in the mailbox.  

I left my edges raw for cuddle factor.
I mean, this quilt is for a baby after all.

Can you see all those soft edges???
Such fun texture for wee babies.

I really love how this one turned out!
I hope that Mystery Mom #1 likes it too!
1 down , 3 more to go.

If you have the itch to bust your scraps too
