Nothing Could Make Me Happier

than seeing this little lady enjoying the quilt I made for her.


Let me please introduce you to my first (absolutely gorgeous) niece, Nieve.  She was born just over a week ago in Boston.  When she arrived home from the hospital, Chaos was there waiting for her.  I'm sure her parents (my brother and SIL) are starting to truly understand the name by this point.  Anyway, she's been cuddling up with it since!

She's been thinking some deep thoughts under that quilt of hers.  We have a future Nobel prize winner I am sure.


I've made lots of quilts and given them to lots of people, but this quilt as a gift for this little girl has been extra special for me.  Here's hoping she gets lots and lots of use out of it.

Nieve is gorgeous and obviously loves her quilt! It is interesting that her name is spelt phonetically! Easier than Niamh, I guess!

That last photo reminds me of one I have of Abbie doing the same pose. Can't believe she was once (not so long ago either) that small!

Beautiful niece Cindy - she will love her quilt!

oh my heavens that last picture kills me dead. She is perfect, I just want to kiss her. My own little girl will be born in June and I can't wait to snuggle her in quilts.

She's beautiful! Congratulations proud Aunty. Do you get to go meet her soon? It's so precious to cuddle them when they are still little. But she doesn't look tiny. Was she a fairly big baby?
