Oh, Dear Ones!! I have a wonderful thing to share with you today!! If you visit me much you know that we're going to be blessed with our first grandbaby in March! I'm just bowled over with the generosity and love that is shown here in our wonderful Blogland! I have a dear Blogfriend who wanted to bless my daughter with a handmade quilt. Yes, Dear Ones! Handmade! I received it yesterday and I am so overwhelmed with the beauty of it. I want to share it with you.

Look at this precious quilt! The yellows and greens because we don't know what sex we're having!

See this precious little bear? He's the big one in the center and he has been completely handstitched around. There is so much work here. Again, I'm just beside myself with thankfulness!

Now I want you to see the work of all the squares! See those tiny little squares of green and beige! Precious! Then look at the triangle sides of the bigger squares! Dear Ones, this precious lady has been working on this for months!!

Now here is one of the four little bears! Darling!! See all of the handstitching around all the pieces? My mother is a quilter and I took this over for her to see and she was so amazed at the beauty of this precious quilt! She was examining it and saying - ooh and ah!! She even called one of her little neighbor ladies to come over and see it!! :)

Another little bear. Oh, I'm in love with this little quilt!

Here is the entire baby quilt. Look at the precious border with the little baby print fabrics! It's all so sweet and soft and the back lining is baby flannel! I'm typing with tears in my eyes. My daughter is going to love this!

Now I want to share with you the Most Precious Lady who made this darling quilt for us ~

It's our own precious Alaura from Cottage Rose! Isn't she the prettiest one? She is as pretty inside as she is outside! (I covet her hair, too!) Thank you Dear Alaura for making this sweet baby quilt for us. My words fail me as I try to thank you! But I do thank you from the bottom of my heart!! May God rain blessings down upon you!!

Please pop over to Alaura's blog and tell her I sent you so you can brag on the beautiful job she did on this darling little quilt!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Wind Beneath My Wings

It must have been cold there in my shadow
To never have sunlight on your face
You were content to let me shine, that's your way
You always walked a step behind
So I was the one with all the glory
While you were the one with all the strength.
A beautiful face without a name, for so long
A beautiful smile to hide the pain

Did you ever know that you're my hero
And everything I would like to be
If I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings
It might have appeared to go unnoticed
But I've got it all here in my heart
I want you to know I know the truth
Of course I know it
I would be nothing with out you

Fly, fly, fly away
You let me fly so high
Oh, fly, fly
So high against the sky
So high I almost touch the sky
Thank you, thank you, thank god for you
The wind beneath my wings
