|Sulimita, nee Violeta|
Mihaela's mom is going to have another baby, a girl. Yesterday I asked what the baby's name would be. Sulamita (Soo-lah-MEE-tah), they said, a Bible name. Come again? So we got out the best Romanian/English dictionary there is: the NWT. They turned to Cântarea Cântărilor (Song of Songs, or Song of Solomon) and pointed to Sulamita, the Shulamite girl! They were so proud to show me, and I understood. Not a typical Romanian or Moldovan name, this family has imagination.
The shower is today but I have no time to make a quilt, in fact I have a temp job so I can't even attend. But I grabbed The Quilt Formerly Known as Violeta off Etsy, and that will have to do. I am freshly laundering it with Downy, and sending it to the shower. This leaves one lone baby blanket on Etsy, which is fine with me. The competition is huge, I think I'll stick to lap throws for grownup and keep the baby ones custom made. This one is so not custom, but I think they will like it for our new little arrival, Sulamita.
