I made this baby quilt in 1994 without any babies to give it to. Leftover blocks, many of which contained fabrics from blanket covers my Nanny made in the 1940's and '50s and we all slept under.
I still love this quilt.
Early this morning I drove to Brooklyn to bring Jess and Emma back here. I couldn't really say "bright and early" because the sky looked like this as I drove east at 9:am. Fortunately, while it threatened intermittently all day, it never really rained. But ick, it is humid!
It was just before lunch and all the old ladies were outside, so we wheeled Emma out into the backyard. They went crazy over her - there is nothing like an infant to make 90 year olds happy! Kootchie-koo.
Emma's hair looks red but isn't. Jessica's is red - and yes, that is her natural color, which has darkened substantially since she was a child. When she was 3, people used to ask whether that was her natural color. Huh?
