Yesterday was spent getting my hair cut in the morning...I love a new haircut. It always looks so much better when everything is even...although I think it is also because I tend to do the hair dye thing the day before.

My niece came home yesterday with her new baby and I drove down to keep her company. She had a c-section so I thought maybe I could help her by holding the baby, changing the baby...you know, the FUN stuff!! LOL She really didn't need any help. She is getting around great and since she is breastfeeding, I really wasn't much help there either. SO...what did we do? We watched 6 episodes of ELLEN.. back to back. I have watched enough Ellen now for the year. Oh, I did do a load of laundry and started dinner for them, so I wasn't completely useless...

To celebrate the new baby, I decided to drop into the LQS and see if they had any new Civil War Prints. Ok, that's a lie... I KNEW she had gotten in 11 new bolts and I wanted to see if any of them spoke to me. You know I don't like those CW prints and it's hard for me to pick them out, but yesterday as I was walking around I spotted a low shelf that I hadn't noticed before. I asked the gal if those were CW prints...

Now these I got excited about.....



I can't wait to use them in my next blocks...

Nice prints you found and how fun that you got to spend some time with the new baby. I'm glad your niece is doing well so soon after the c-section.

Hi Nancy,
Glad to hear your niece is doing so well. I'm sure she loved having you visit. Did you get a cuddle?
Any excuse is good enough for a visit to the quilt shop :)
Hugs, Sharon

Ya know, I didn't have a baby, but you're always welcome to come do laundry and start dinner at my house. I mean, you gave birth to ME!
LOL

You were NOT useless! She was very happy you were there and felt more comfortable not being alone on her 1st day home.
