After 29 hours of hard labor, my friend had her baby on Tuesday. I'm so happy she is here. This family has "adopted" me into there's and I am honored to be the aunt of sweet R. I am giving the new family time to adjust and then I will go up to visit them. Just to add to the tears welling in my eyes from happiness, here's what the new mom said about the quilt: "J, everyone is gaga for her AND the quilt! It was my touchstone for so much of labor. I leaned over it while I had contractions and buried my face in it. In the hospital I had it on my bed as a reminder of what we were aiming for and it comforted us all to have a bright beautiful focal point and a warm nonhospital blanket. What a gift the whole process of the quilt has been. It means so much to me and I cant wait to tell R the story."
