My little granddaughter has a smile that lights up my world. Avery Juniper will be 18 months old this month. Her mom, Chelsea has been such a blessing to my son (Andy) and our family.
Avery enjoys millinery. Perhaps she can give Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie advice what looks horrible and what looks adorable.
 I didn't begin making Avery's baby quilt until she was delivered safely into the world, so, of course, I finished it in the parking lot where her first birthday party was held.
 Her name is blanket stitched wool. I was worried how it would wash, but it is totally fine; Chelsea washes it a lot. I machine quilted all but the strips containing her name. There I did random big stitch (really just hand quilting with embroidery floss).
 I love the circus fabric on the back.
I have been searching Pink Chalk, Hancock's of Paducah and Fat Quarter Shop for something to use for Everett's quilt. I like Animal ABC's, but I may make a trip to Intown Quilters in Decatur to see what I can find.

Everett? Oh yeah, small (teehee) detail. Everett Landon was born Tuesday, August 2. He and his mom, Meredith (Eron's wife), are still in the hospital. C-sections are not easy things to go through.
Now I have two grand-babies. 
Life is amazing.
