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.
