Audrey loves the sunshine! Audrey's birthday is in August but her quilt has been done for quite some time now. In fact hers was the first quilt I made in this project of the birthday quilts for "The Girls".
Living in the Northeastern US means we get only 3 months a year when the weather is considered mild enough to go to the beach in a bathing suit. We actually have four seasons; almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction! This is a challenge for a sun worshiper such as Audrey. I remember that she would be the first one to don a bathing suit and slather on the baby oil (yes baby oil!) in hopes of soaking in the first rays of sun in the spring (that's "still winter" for you non-NH folks). She would also be the one on the ski lift with her face pointed upward to catch a bit of the winter sun during a day on the slopes.
When I started the birthday quilt project I didn't have any idea that I would be blogging about them. Fortunately, I took pictures as I went along thinking I would add to my scrapbook for all my quilts. Now that I've figured out how easy it is to blog, I don't know if I'll ever get them into that scrapbook.
