I cut out the flannel, and my niece arranged the squares. This was for her favorite teacher's newborn last spring. My niece hand wrote the "signature" patch. It is in super close-up because I wanted a shot of how the quilting looked on the back.

Farewell, Mr. Van

We knew the van's days were numbered, but we didn't know how few! DH was the middle car in a three-car crash in a construction area yesterday. He is uninjured, it seems -- other than some leg pain. He was braking hard, we think. He was the only one who didn't opt for an ambulance ride. He was stopped in traffic when the woman behind him rear-ended him, going ~30 -- and pushed him into the car ahead. He says our car is 1 foot shorter now.
