Remember that tiny scrap of humanity born too early last September? She is growing like a gorgeous little weed now! Baby Catarina is over 11 pounds now - twice her birth weight at 3 months. Prematurity seems to simply be a time thing for her. She is beautiful and healthy - no lingering issues or problems. We are so blessed.
I spent a couple of months hovering and watching to see where I could possibly help her parents. It's a lot to have a new baby and having a premature baby seems to amp up the chaos. The flu whipped through our house. We had 2 catastrophic ice storms in our area leaving us without power for almost a week each time. The holidays were squished in there with the ice. Then my mother was hospitalized for a week. When it rains, it pours. I am just now relaxing. And sewing :)
I whipped up a nursing cover and breast pads for Cat's momma.
Then Christmas dresses for both granddaughters were necessary.
I sent my 2013 Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mystery quilt Celtic Solstice to be quilted in December and was able to gift it to my youngest daughter for Christmas. She is moving into a new place but she had her quilt nestled on her bed which instantly makes it home. Aren't quilts wonderful that way?
