This and That

Happy Monday quilting friends!  Before we talk about quilting this morning I wanted to be your typical proud grandma and share with you my new grandson.   This is Mason Nathaniel, born last Wednesday.    
My daughters 4th and last baby.  The doctors were talking about complications due to her small size and him growing so quick and large.  But by the grace of the powers that be everything went smoothly and naturally.  So instead of spending a few weeks with my daughters family, I'll be bringing my favorite little sewing buddy Aylin home with me for a couple of weeks while mommy gets to know the new baby.  She's a good girl, but I know the studio work will slow to a crawl.


Luckily there's no sewing that needs to be completed.  This is what my design wall looks like a the moment.  You know what that means!  The quilt top is complete!  Yeah!


And that means I need to convert all my scribbles into a printable pattern and quilt the quilt.  Pattern writing requires hours, days really of sitting at the computer.  The plan is to quilt awhile then write awhile.  Giving me a nice variety.  Standing or sitting for long periods of time is so hard on this ole gals body.  I'm sure Aylin will keep me hopping also! 


See you in a few hops!

    Awwwwww, welcome Mason and good wishes to mom, baby and the whole family. What fun you will have with Aylin! All the special help you'll receive. You are both lucky ducks! And a clear design wall . . . maybe you and Aylin will need to go find a special project just for the two of you?! {{Hugs}} I'm so excited for you. ~smile~ Roseanne

  10. Grandchildren are God's gift for putting up with teenagers. Our granddaughters are the joy of our life. They love being in grandma's sewing room. The 9 year old has named it "The Fun Girls Club Room". On Sunday they were over for dinner and afterwards ended up in the sewing room. Ally (9) was learning to crochet from a book I bought her for Christmas (she is left handed). I've already taught her to sew and she now takes lessons from a friend of mine with other little girls. The 3 year old was standing on my step stool (that has a handle) and pulled out of my stash in the bookcase a comic board wrapped darling 30's cat fabric and said "I like this one". Then she looked at me and said "I love you grandma" and reached out and touched me. I cannot even tell you how that felt. In that moment with the two in my sewing room, with all my girly fun fabric, cutting table, large Ikea fabric covered ironing table, with their Christmas 2018 quilts on my quilting wall, it hit me that they are going to remember these times when I am gone. In 2018 I decided to completely devote my time to the girls when they are at my house (which can be several times a week) and just enjoy them. I'm so lucky they live close to us after so long away from us. The oldest lived on the East Coast for almost 4 years and we are in California. God bless you and your family and that new baby. Enjoy darling Aylin, the days are long, but the years are short.
