No, she’s not missing her front teeth, just playing with her tongue.

Miah’s 100 Good Wishes Quilt

September 18th, 2007

I’m finally starting on Miah’s quilt. I know most people make theirs during the long wait, but I was a pretty busy person back then. As if I’m not busy now, HA! Here’s a photo of Miah supervising as I arrange the squares. She loves all the colors, and I’ve discovered I can’t work on the floor without her getting in the middle of it all. I found a perfect print for the back and accents on the front. The red with gold ladybugs matches wonderfully with the drapes in her room (red with gold dragonflies). I’ve really enjoyed designing her quilt, taking ideas from several that I’ve seen pictured, yet keeping it simple. Thank you so much to each of you who’ve contributed; it’s very special.  I’m looking forward to seeing the finished product. Hopefully that won’t be too far in the future, but as a mother of a 13 month old, I won’t make any promises!
