KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

Diary Quilt Tuesday

I know it has been a long time since I posted anything but a lot has been going on here! First of all I was deathly sick again and in bed for 4 days......I was afraid I might not get this block done. 
Yesterday was my daughter, Caitlin's birthday. She is my little ballerina, so this block represents her. She started taking dance when she was 4 and stopped her senior year in high school. It was a big part of our lives.

An almost similar pose....this was taken when she was 4 and she was a bluebird......25 years ago! Where does that time go?

I wouldn't call her a daddy's girl, but they do have a special bond of respect and love.


She survived, braces and school pictures...


and 3 older brothers...........


she also provided drama from time to time....


She will always be our little princess.


She's all grown up and soon to become a wife. She got engaged this weekend and we all are so very happy! Congratulations Jim and Caitlin!


 Maddy helped with the cake.


Do you think we could fit one more thing on there? Notice the ballerinas.


I think they will live happily ever after!
