Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Thanks for all the suggestions of what to do with the leftover fabric from SBG's quilt.

I went up to the Married One's house (or should I say the VPO - Very Pregnant One's) last week to take a surprise to her.  I kept thinking, "What could I give SBG that would be so me that no one else would think of?"  The answer .... a Christmas tree of her own.

It's a beginning .... something to be added to over the years.  She has a few "Baby's First Christmas - 2012" ornaments already along with some Baby's First Christmas outfits.  She's not here yet and still has 6 days to go.  If she isn't here, they will make for some fun discussions in the future!

I used some of the leftover fabric to make a tree skirt for the tree.

It doesn't look very pretty yet.  It's just the top with the circles fused on.  I told Married One that I would finish it properly with decorative stitching and embellishments before next year.

There is still enough fabric left for another surprise for her.  It's already started and it should use up the rest of the fabric just nicely.

Married One goes to the doctor again on Thursday.  Due date is Friday but she was born 2 weeks late.  I don't know if Mawmaw will be able to handle the suspense!

Blessings, Cathi

Well, the Mayans did predict something monumental would happen this Friday. A birth would be wonderful.

I see you are counting down the days until baby's arrival. Won't be long.

Hi Cathi,
What a fun tree for SBG - imagine all the special decorations you can make/buy for it each year.
