WW: True Love



This yellow dress came back to us from Ireland. We bought it for one of the Irishman's nieces years ago and it was sent back to us for Caitlin to wear now. It is funny to think that I picked the dress out not ever expecting to dress my own daughter in it!

The heart quilt was made for Caitlin by her Grandma Laura. It came with specific instructions that it is to be used and loved, not saved and put away. My mom does a lot of paper pieced quilts and this happens to be one of my favorite patterns. I love it...and I think Caitlin does, too!

Speaking of quilts, Caitlin and I have a Wednesday lunch date with some lovely ladies including the talented quilter who made the Irish floor quilt photographed so often in Miss Caitlin's pictures! We are looking forward to it! If only spring break were a tad bit longer...

Head here to join the Wordful Wednesday fun:

She is a doll!!! It is so hard for us not to be in love with our little ones especially when they are as cute as ours :)

That quilt is beautiful. I was able to take my eyes off your beaming daughter for just a split second to notice it. Very talented indeed.
