Sweet Dreams, Caroline

On the fifth day of the six-day weekend of 2010, Joe and I went up to Sherry's after church.  Caroline will be two years old in two weeks, and it was time to pack away the crib and set up the Big Girl Bed, so we went to help. 

Fortunately, her quilt was finished some time ago.  It's a bit sophisticated, I think, for someone not-quite-two, but the one I'd initially planned for her was deemed by her mom as "too mature" so it was set aside for later on. 

We had a lot of fun and got quite a bit done.  Of course Sam and Caroline had to "help" which made our job more interesting.

I had seen a set of pink and white polka-dot sheets that I thought would be pretty with the quilt and brought them along.  When Carrie's bed was assembled and the linens were on it, it was coincidentally naptime.  She crawled right in and zonked, as though she'd been sleeping there for ever!

What a gorgeous quilt for a little girl, I'm sure she will have a lot of sweet dreams under this one!

And the sheets are adorable, too!

How sweet! They are little for such a short time, getting a precious moment like this is wonderful! The quilt is pretty and simple and the polka dot sheets go perfectly.

What a great, perfect quilt. I love it and I love the quilting, too. Great job my friend. Fantastic job!!! I can't believe she's growing up so fast. It seems like just a couple days ago she hit the ground.

It's a lovely quilt.
I checked out the one that was too mature, expecting naked bunnies or something. It's lovely, too, and no doubt will end up on Carrie's bed when she;s mature enough for it.

I keep coming back to this post and drooling over the quilt! It's so pretty and 'girly.' And I think that just now I like that it reminds me of warmer weather.
