Horton Hears a Who!

Trina and Tanner decided to use The Horton character from Dr. Seuss for Maddux's bedroom. Tanner painted Horton on the wall, (which you can see here) and they put the saying, "A person's a person no matter how small" on the wall.

This left me with a dilemma for the quilt because there is no Horton fabric. Don't get me wrong, Horton is on some fabric, but there are always other characters with him. I decided on these fabrics by Robert Kaufmann--

And I decided to use a pattern from Moda Bake Shop. You can see it here. I didn't follow it exactly but pretty much.

I had to fussy cut Horton out of the middle two fabrics which made for a lot of waste. I guess someone else is going to get a Dr. Seuss quilt in the future!

My sewing machine was just back from the shop(which is a story in itself), and I meandered over the entire quilt UNTIL I got to about the last six inch square and MY MACHINE QUIT AGAIN!!!! Luckily a friend with a dependable machine brought hers in for me to use so I could finish it.

Maddux gets his first opportunity to use it.

New Grandson!

Maddux Lynn was born April 14th at 12:06 a.m.

He weighed 7lbs. 2oz. & was 21" long
He is about 3 weeks early so he had a little glitch with his blood sugar, but it has been taken care of.

Big brother Grayson has been enjoying spending time with Nanas, Grandpas, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins! He's been a trooper!

This makes seven grandsons and one granddaughter for us!

We spent Easter in the Texas Panhandle visiting relatives. My brother was gracious enough to sent his plane to get us and to bring us home. My sister went with us.

You're welcome, Kath!
We traveled to Ute Lake in New Mexico to spend some time fishing, boating, and sitting in the hot tub at my brother's lake home.

My Great Nephew, Graham, was baptized on Easter Sunday.

It was a beautiful service.
We had a great time!

Easter with the Grandkids!

We don't have all the grandkids together too often, so when we do we try to take a photo.  
They grow so fast!  And in a couple of weeks this photo will be outdated because we have two new ones due soon!

Blogger has been giving me problems.  It isn't letting me upload photos because it says my Picasa Album is full.  I didn't even know I was using Picasa!  So, now I have to go through and delete some photos that are uploaded but not on the blog.  Who has time for that???
