New Arrival

I've been blatantly absent from the blog as of late.

The reason....

 This precious little guy(all 9pounds, 1oz. & 21 inches of him) came into our lives on July 7.  My parents and I had been staying with my lil' sis in Chicagoland 2 weeks prior to his arrival and were there when he was born.

Mommy, Daddy and Baby are doing great and the family couldn't be happier.

Aunt Kellie is 100% in love with her nephew.

Shhh! It's Really a Towel Rack.

While I haven't been crafting much lately, I have been doing a bit of shopping. I'd been wanting a quilt rack for a while...after all, it's kind of sad to make a quilt only to shove it in the closet. All I had been able to find locally was the standard oak rack with hearts cut out on the sides. Not exactly my style, so in the closet my quilts went. While perusing IKEA in Chicagoland, I came across this towel rack. I think it works well for displaying smaller quilts, which are what I prefer to make! I'd like to hang the larger quilt(left), but haven't decided on exactly how to do that. I would really love to know your thoughts on hanging and displaying quilts.
