Introducing Miss Sophie Marie

This isn't a great picture of me - my lack of sleep really shows - but it's a great picture of Sophie and that's all that matters. She is such a little sweetheart and a perfect Valentine's Day gift for everyone. It was so hard to leave the hospital last night - I could have held her forever. I can't wait to get back there this evening.

Thank you everyone for all your good wishes and congratulatory comments. They are all very much appreciated.

(Note the hourglass quilt blocks in the floor!)

LOL Only a quilter would notice the quilt blocks on the floor. She is adorable.

Beautiful Sophie is bound to be a quilter, her quilting grandmother had her first quilt finished before she (Sophie)was finished and then when she did finally make her appearance, it was into a hospital with quilted floors! It is predestined- she has no choice!! Hug and kiss her extra for us.

What a wonderful picture! I saw quilt sqs all over the place when we lived in Spain. And I didnt' know I was a quilter yet! My family thought I was cracked. Nice to know I'm not alone out there in "finding quilt designs EVERYWHERE' land.

Fiona said...

Just beautiful - you may be tired but you look very happy!

Jane Ann said...

Oh, my lord, Patti, she's BEAUTIFUL. She looks like a doll--literally. You look pretty pleased, as well you should be!

I'm glad to know her middle name. I swear I left a comment yesterday, congratulating you and asking if her middle name was going to be Valentina. (Guess I only "previewed" and forgot to "publish." Darn. But I did send my best--it just didn't get there.)
