We think she's perfect!
We are leaving in 20 days - February 16th! That's less than 3 weeks away! We will be returning on the 25th. I am nervous about being away from the kids for so long. While my stomach was in knots about that, my daughter was happily chatting about how she was so excited to have Dell watch her and that she couldn't wait to play with Baby Violet. Then she went on to discuss how fun it would be to hang out with Aunt Mi-Mi (my sister) and Ga Ga (my mom) while we were gone. My mom reminded me that this will be a fabulous opportunity to soak in all things Ethiopian and that it would be best if we weren't rushing around while we were there. I think she's right and we absolutely cannot wait to meet E. It is so surreal!
I finished E's baby quilt.
This was the first time that I was brave in my quilting and went outside of "stitch in the ditch."
I hand sewed the binding to the back of the quilt. This was also a first for me.
We still have so much to do before we go! I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. One thing at a time I guess...
