If he had been a girl

I was all set with this quilt. I actually stitched this one first thinking that for sure then Pete would get a baby brother. It worked!

Long Overdue

I'm slowly working my way through years of unfinished projects. About 25 years ago, a friend bought these butterfly blocks at a garage sale -- they looked like antiques already then. She asked if I would make them into a quilt for her, and she let me know that she was in no hurry for the finished product. It felt good to finally finish this and deliver it to her last week.

To welcome Andrew Paul

A new grandson was born on Saturday, June 26, and his quilt is ready for him. Looking forward to a trip next week to deliver it and spend some cuddling time.

This cute fella (my oldest grandchild) showed up at my door this evening after a long drive from St. Ignace where he had spent the weekend with his dad and friends. He's pretty excited about his first trip to the U.P. without his parents. He let me know right away that he brought his drivers permit with him. Shudder!! I let him know I went through that with my kids and he'll just have to wait until he gets back home to get some driving time in.
