~ A Special Surprise ~

Marci pieced together 48 rose themed squares, from friends and family, both locally and online, into this beautiful quilt for our baby! What a treasure this will be for her!!!!
I was so touched to see all the thought and love that went into this gift, including lovely squares from women I hardly know. Thank you all so much!!

*It may take me awhile, but hopefully I can take close ups of each square to share with you all, so you can see it up close. The photo hardly does it justice!

  4. Marci did a wonderful job with the quilt and with the entire shower. What a lovely day.

  5. What a beautiful shower! What wonderful gifts too! Thanks for sharing photos. After your post weeks ago about the whispering at a Little Flowers meeting, I was just waiting to hear about a shower in your (and baby Rose's) honor :)

  6. The quilt turned out so beautifully, I'm so glad Marci asked me to participate, wish I could have beent there in person sweetie! Many prayers for these last few weeks :))

  10. Oh, Jessica! I'm so happy that it came out so beautifully! Marci did a FANTASTIC job. I think I see my little contribution. ;)

    I'm kinda cheating by being on the computer here, but I had to comment. You and little Rose are still in my prayers and I have plenty of time to focus on prayer now that I'm stuck in bed,lol.

    P.S. you and your girls look radiant!

    As always, thank you for sharing and God bless!

  11. Your so very welcome Jessica! Don't worry about the Thank you cards, you just take care of you and your little one growing inside! God bless you!
