Finally finished...

Yes...after 19 months behind schedule I have finally finished Ella's 100 Good Wishes quilt. I guess it is the same with any 2nd child and projects usually take longer. I made a large quilt and a small one. Ella was so sweet when I gave it to her and all day she would come to me and say "tank you mama". Which made me start to feel bad that maybe she thinks Jetty gets more then her... this is typical mother thoughts, right?

Now, if I can get her toddler, regular lifebook, and slide show done by her 2nd Family Day, I will really be on the ball.

Speaking of slideshows...I used Nero to do Jetty's and it had a few glitches. Can anyone recommend a good slideshow program.

lovely work on the quilts. :)

awesome about the boating too! I'm glad that everyone is enjoying doing that. It is very relaxing for sure.

I read about the Chapman's loss. definitely tragic especially since it was such an accident. And with things still unsettled and volitile in the Sichuan area, our hearts go out to those people and we definitely cherish every moment with Autumn as I'm sure you guys do with your two! :)
take care you guys!

Those are gorgeous! And don't beat yourself up about the amount of time it took you, Sydney's (yes, Sydney's -- not Claire's) is being quilted right now so I'm right there with you. And I'm still collecting quilt squares for Claire's.
