Design Wall Monday 9-29-2013 Ooops! A Day Late

I have a great reason to be a day late on my design wall: 
Welcome to the world Elise Mae!  
Born Friday, October 25th.  She weighed in at 9 lbs, 3 oz. Here she is at less than one day old. 
Here she is at about 2 days old with her proud Daddy, Kevin.
And Mommy Aimee and Elise just home from the hospital. 3 days old. 

Ellie joins our other two grand daughters, Sophia and Natalie. 
Grammy and Peka are proud as can be! 

Nothing else to show this week since this would trump anything I showed! 

Needless to say it did impact what I got done this week.

Happy Quilting All!   


  1. What a sweetie! I'm guessing she is your granddaughter? You are so right, nothing can beat it!

  2. Best wishes to you and your family.

  3. Awwwww! Babies always trump. :-D

  4. Absolutely no way could you top this!! How beautiful she is. Congratulations. Grandchildren are the best - they bring out other emotions you didn't know you had.

  5. She is so pretty. My friend had her baby girl Oct. 24,2013 and they name her Elise also. I love the name.
