Joy is only growing...(yes, granddaughter arrived!)

Hello everyone,

I can finally contain myself to sit down and write a few words... Our first, most beautiful granddaughter has arrived!!!!

Juliana Marie Vujcic was born on Thursday, May 15th at 7:40 pm - 7lb 2oz and 21" of PURE PERFECTION!!!

To say we are happy, overjoyed, ecstatic, blessed, grateful, in love....all an understatement!!

As someone who deeply respects parent's wishes first, I won't share too many baby pictures, but for this one I have permission:

 Yes. My heart is taken. For good. :)

Sew...did you notice the quilt? He, he...I bet you did. You know I made one, (story HERE ), but this is not that one. This one - this beauty - has a story too. :)

I am not sure if you know (forgot if I talked about it!), but besides my Amherst Quilters Guild, I also belong to the Western New York Modern Quilt Guild - the lively, wonderful, creative and loving group of women that I am privileged to know and call my friends. Apparently, ever since I announced our happy news that first grandchild is on its way, secret project among them was on the way too!
Result - this beauty!!

Notice that it is already on the rocking chair I intend to use when Juliana comes to visit. (can't wait!!).

Oh but I almost love the back more than the front - beautiful, lovely labels full of words that fill my heart!!

Our meeting was this passed Saturday - only 3 days after baby arrived, but I did make it, although a bit late. And then I got presented with this beautiful surprise!!
 Did I mention I LOVE the back?
 And of course a card that I will cherish forever... :)
By the way - how cool it was that I dressed accordingly? Ha ha!
OK, OK...I will give you this one too - my surprised face!
 This was Robi's quick camera catch...thanks friend!! :)

What can I tell you - I am so humbled, grateful and blessed beyond measure to have family and friends around me that make every day better than the one before.
As title says - JOY IS ONLY GROWING.

Wishing you joy too,



  1. congratulations to you and your family on the new arrival .. what a wonderful group of friends to give you such a gift xx

  2. Adorable addition to your family and congratulations. Beautiful quilt and the back is wonderful.

  3. You are more welcome than you know. I feel honored and blessed to have been a part of this --- to do something for someone who always does so much for everyone else. čestitke!! Robi

  4. I am very happy for you and your family!

  5. Many, many congratulations Marija!
    And what a delightful group of stitchers you belong to, how lovely to have made the quilt for you like that!
    Guess they are all 'keepers' lol
    There is something surreal when you hold the child, of your own child and it does indeed fill your heart with molten joy.
    Mind you I still like that thing I see from time to time on Facebook...
    Grandchildren are the reward for not strangling your teenage children lol

  6. Congratulations Marija. Grandchildren are a delight. And they are meant to be spoilt by grandparents. She is a darling, so peaceful (now...)

  7. A beautiful baby and a beautiful name--congratulations!

  8. Congratulations, Marija! I am so happy to have been able to be a part of this gift and I am overjoyed that you are thrilled with it! I only wish I could have made it to the meeting so see your reaction in person. Juliana is absolutely beautiful! Congrats again to your whole family!
