baby interruptus

Yesterday morning I got the baby alert call...and after work headed over to the hospital. At 1:09 am my granddaughter, Alice Lee made her entrance into the world. I was able to hold her about fifteen minutes later. Pretty exciting stuff!
I got home around 2:30 am and after three hours of sleep- here I am. Did I mention how gorgeous Alice is? She is just the prettiest baby girl ever to me!
Guess that hand quilted pink baby quilt has found a home. *vbg* It's going to be one of my main life goals to introduce her to quilting so she can inherit my stash and machines and carry on the quilting torch. Hurray for a baby girl in the family!
Quilting? oh yeah....I did not do any during our beach time-took my knitting instead. I remembered I need to stitch in a hanging sleeve along with the binding and there was not enough time Friday to pull all that together. The wedding fun took up most of our time as it was.
I have sleep to catch up on tonight-quilting will probably be on hold for several days as life adjusts to the new family member.

This is the most terrific news, Cher! And the pink quilt will definitely NOT go to waste. (Her great gma would be happy about that)

Love and blessings to Alice Lee. Is "Lee" her middle name?

If so, she and I already have something in common. LOL.

Hugs and kisses to the new beautiful baby. What a lucky grandbaby she is.

I'm a little late, but congratulations on the new granddaughter! She is a beauty and it sounds like she has you wrapped around her little finger already. Enjoy her!
