Baby quilts and Birthdays.....

DH, DS. DD and I all share September birthdays!! That used to mean one B-day cake a week when they were small! This took me all day to post--I get a little misty eyed thinkin' of all that. And the new little ones we will welcome starting in November....
Here's the baby quilt for DH's BFF--due mid-November. She mentioned she liked yellow and grey...so this little charm pack fit the bill nicely. The black polka dots were in the stash and the light grey came from Joann's, as did the flannel backing.

Happy with the FMQ'ing and stitched on the binding by machine....Hope she likes it and it gets lots of use!
  I received lots of flowers for my day, and lots of wonderful cards with great wishes in them. I love both!!
My FIL brought this rose he cut from his garden...

The kids sent these beauties...the picture doesn't do them justice.

And my sweet sister (mrs. greenthumbs!) potted up this lovely porch planter. It lights up the front door!!
It's been a good day and a great birthday...  :-)
