Good stuff’s a comin’

In any spare time I’ve had which unfortunately hasn’t been much, I’ve been sewing, sewing and sewing some more.

We have a new granddaughter coming soon you see.  We can’t wait to meet Miss Ella Rae.  Miss Ella is due to arrive April 21st but using my grandmotherly wisdom. (I am 50 now so I can be grandmotherly and have wisdom, right?) I don’t think she’s going to wait that long to make her appearance. 

I have a set of bibs and an afghan to complete yet and I’ve already made burp rags and a hat.  Then last night I finished these two receiving blankets and another hat.


Both of these are a brighter pink than they photographed.

And if a new baby isn’t enough, we have more good stuff comin’!

See these two?

IMG_4925They have finally set a wedding date!  Joe & Kristen have been together since 2002 and on Saturday, June 4th we’ll celebrate their marriage with them at casual backyard BBQ and car show. 
What?  You’ve never heard of a car show wedding before?  Really? Smile 
A big chunk of their world revolves around cars and car shows so what better way to celebrate their new life together than to have a car show at their celebration! 
We’re so excited for them.

Lots of good stuff a-comin’ in the Miller family for sure!


  1. Ella's things are adorable! Wish I was around to see everything in person. And a June wedding! It will be a great spring! Are you guys hosting the wedding?

  2. Congratulations on the up coming marriage! As parents we are always happy when they finally tie the knot.
