Just sharing with friends I have made here on the forum - our baby Olivia is here!  She went to NICU for her first few days after she was born as she needed a little help breathing and had a little hole in her heart - though we are blessed as it looks as though she will not need surgery - we go back in sixth months to be sure.  Just wanted to share!

 

I was a little nervous how I'd manage quilting with a new baby and a sort of rough recovery from c-section, but I'm feeling pretty confident after the last few days.  I've been trying to get back in the groove of things, and though we're in a new routine, I think we're going to do well!    Hoping to turn on my long arm today for the first time in over a month - I'm excited!

Congratulations on your new heir drop.  She is gorgeous.  I would bet money that after listing to your quilting machine in the womb all those months, that the sound of it will soothe her, and help her fall to sleep.  Get some sleep yourself.

May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….

She is absolutely beautiful.  I can't think of anything better that would keep me from quilting than that precious thing.  I used to love to blow bubbles (more sound than bubbles) on my grandkids belly when they were lying still.  They would just laugh and laugh.  That 3rd picture is just pure innocence.
