.....Daddy's going to buy you a mockingbird.....Please welcome Roxy Janome Douglas to the world!


A sort of baby shower.....I have been keeping a secret....and now.....


I have been blessed with a new baby girl who coos like a Ferrari and has plenty of arm space....Roxy Janome Douglas is her name.....

 

My sweet baby girl has taken quite nicely to me as her sewing partner and together we created this wonky wall hanging inspired by Material Obsession.....As I was sewing, I noticed I was unconsciously humming....Daddy's going to buy you a mockingbird....and then Duff was so sweet and brought a gift to the shower, a fun package from the mailman with a fav CD of hers for me to enjoy!

And the best part of my new little ROXY- I can learn to free motion quilt in my own home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I will always dream of being Green Fairy, but for now Roxy and I will putz along and send the Big Dogs to Judi.

Hi Em, glad your new baby was a sewing machine. When I saw the name, before I read farther, I thought someone must really love Janome to name a baby after the company. Guess I need to get more sleep. CELEBRATE sewing on your new machine! Patty
