Sweet Abigale

Forgive me quilters, it has been 10 days since my last confession.  Please continue to forgive me, because it will be at least as many days until I post something quilt related again.  I’m working on a new book, which means I’m spending time quilting, but I just can’t show anything I’m making.   In the meantime, I am going to share some of the things I have been knitting(later this week) and catch up on some family stuff.   By now, you probably know this blog isn’t all about my work, but beware, there are cute baby pictures coming up.

Like this one –


Abi, meet the blogosphere.   Blogosphere, meet our new niece Abigale Marie.  She was born last Wednesday and we went to visit her last weekend. 



Here she is with her Uncle Joel (my DH), and we happen to think she’s pretty cute.  Actually, quite perfect.  She really doesn’t even look like a newborn.  Her cheeks are already filled out and check out that cute double chin!  The rest of her is quite perfect too –



Like her tiny little fingers



And her tiny little toes.


This is her big sister Kara


She has beautiful features too –



Like these beautiful blue eyes



And these beautiful eyelashes. 

 Not to mention her personality.  She hadn’t had a nap that day, so if you asked her if she was tired, she replied “No, I’m happy.”   I thought that was such a cute reply and a little something good for us adults to be reminded of as well.   


Here’s Kara with another new member of the family, Frankie.  Pretty soon dogs are going to outnumber people in the Peterson family.


Here’s the two girls with their mother  – 

 And one last shot of the baby.


Congratulations to the parents on another job well done!

    Ooooh, yum! She’s gorgeous. Heck, you all are! Except Joel. Pretty sure he might take offense to ‘gorgeous.’ 😉 What a sweet little baby, and beautiful photos.

  13. shauna says:

    What a beautiful baby and a beautiful family. Congratulations!

  14. Kathleen says:

    Congratulations! There are some awfully cute kids in the Peterson family. Will look forward to more photos in your books!
    And a new book in the works, you say? Oh goodie…can hardly wait!

  15. Nicole says:

    That has to be one of the most perfect looking babies I have ever seen!

  16. Carrie says:

    Abigale is beautiful. And so is Kara. Those eyelashes are amazing! What is up with your kin and eyelashes ~ that’s some awesome eyelash-DNA you’ve got going on.

    As always, your pictures are beautiful. Even with gorgeous subjects, you totally do them justice.

    But as beautiful as the Petersens are, I think I’m most gaga over the newest four-legged member of the family. Frankie is so cute! And really, as wonderful as babies are, you’ve got to wait a little while until you can really play with them. Can I just go play with Kara and Frankie?

    Congratulations to Aunt Heather and Uncle Joel!

  17. Cheryl says:

    Don’t you just want to sit and stare, and smell, and touch their soft skin, when they are that age! Babies are just sooooo lovely. Congratulations Aunty Heather.

  21. Susan Lanthrip says:

    The girls are beautiful!

    What kind of dog is that? It is so cute!!

  22. Could those children be any more beautiful? I think not!

  23. Vickie says:

    Wow! Talk about seeing the breath of heaven … she is so amazing and perfect. Congratulations to your family! God’s richest blessings!
