Good Grief!

I had no idea, just had not taken time to think about it, how long it had been since I posted on this part of the blog.

First of all, that new grand baby girl...has turned one...this past July.
She started walking about three weeks ago.  She is a handful, just normal stuff involving now being mobile, but I don't mind.
Can't forget big brother you know.  He is really starting to come in to that little boy personality that is all him.

So you see, taking care of these two during the day doesn't leave much time for anything else.

Honestly, I have put pretty much all my sewing, needle work and quilting on hold for a while.  I gave up my sewing room to my youngest son.  He has moved in with us after graduating from college.  He has a job, plans to go in to a program for a year with his company that will put him in the job position he is after.  So, his plans to move out are on hold while he waits to see how things work out with this program and how his finances will work out.  I don't mind him living here, helping him out while he gets on his feet, but am sure anxious to have a room back to work in.  Bonus on that front, youngest daughter is planning on going with him.  Then...I will have a room to make in to a play room for the grand babies.  I LOOK FORWARD to that.  Except then I won't have any help with them from youngest daughter when she gets home from her classes.  Oh well, it is just a trade off. LOL

So, I won't be posting any new projects to this section for a while, but now you know why.


The Pink Has Arrived

The last few months have been totally crazy.  First of all, let me show off.
 My newest grand baby arrived.  Pink this time.  She was just hours old in this photo.
I am so happy, so thankful to God that everything turned out so well.  She was full term, healthy, and her mom is doing great as well.
Miss C arrived July 14, 2013 weighing 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 21 inches long.  She has lovely long fingers and long toes and a long little foot as well.  Not sure if the hair will be blonde or brown yet, but she has quite a bit.  After three grandsons, am so happy to have a grand daughter to dress up.

Life is still really busy around here with all the cleaning, remodeling and catching up I have to do from being sick and some dental work that went a little wrong.  We are soon to be heading out on our big vacation adventure as well.

I received my beautiful crazy quilt block back home today.  All the wonderful additions made to it each time it stopped to visit at some one's home for a few weeks are just beyond words.  I have it sealed up with some dryer sheets to get rid of the smoke, my asthma has just been so easily triggered lately.  Soon as I get back from our trip I will post a photo so all can see how lovely it is.

Got to go for now, so will be back in August and hopefully in full swing with all my sewing and crafting.  I have a list of projects to get cracking on before my daughter in law finishes her maternity leave and I will be back in day care mode.  Plus school starting back for daughter, Miss Zebra's senior year.  Wish me luck and check back in August.
