A little bit of late night name that tune, or rather, name that artist. Do you know who sang that song? Bonus points if you can guess what 80's show theme song he also sang? Googling doesn't count!
Anyway, where was I? Oh, yes...the rain. If you are looking for whining or crying or moping, you won't find it here because we NEED the rain. The farmers need the rain! Husband tells me that we are still ten inches behind where we should be for the year. So we are bucking up and cozying up with some bright, cheerful spring time (indoor) crafts.
Spring makes us think of babies and we have babies to celebrate. Aren't back to back baby showers a great way to welcome spring? These Quilties are for two wee ones due in the next few months. Shortcake embroidered the angel dolly on the left for her new godsister due to arrive on Holy Thursday! She was so excited to get to make something special for Baby O and really took to embroidering! I drew the design according to her specifications. It is loosely based on this one but with some alterations. I made the one on the right for a friend of my SIL who is a first time mommy at the age of 40! And a hearty congratulations to another friend in her early forties who just told us she is expecting! A quick prayer for her teeny tiny one would be lovely! These women are beautiful examples of God's blessings and generosity even at what most people nowadays think of as "advanced maternal age". I really don't like that phrase. Let's see if we can come up with something that reflects their beauty!
