Today I have some wonderful news to share with you that has been wanting to jump out onto the pages of this blog for a couple of weeks now! I have been given the okay to share now. I am so extremely excited to share with you that we are going to have another sweet little grand baby!!!! Yes, Jennie and her husband, Josiah are having a baby that will be born this Fall!! We are all so excited and the other great news is that they will live only hours away from us again!!!!! While they currently live all the way across the country!
I, of course can’t wait to make another baby quilt and other baby items, but the best part will be all that snuggling and cuddling we will have with a baby!! We have many things to get ready for having grandchildren that will be visiting us often. Toys and books and little children things will once again be all around in our home. Silas and Norah are being prepped about their upcoming move. Silas tells me all about it on the telephone. So cute! Norah just says hi, hi, hi!! I know she says grandma, but I think I am the only one who can hear that. Sometimes it gets really lonely here in VA. We do have our 23 year old son, Brandon who lives at home still. We are thankful to have him here. But the more the merrier, right!!!
We are bursting with joy and anticipation!!
Now that I have my wonderful news out in the open I have a few small sewing projects that I would like to share, I have been busy sewing as Spring Quilt Market is just around the corner. We will be sending some bags and maybe a couple of other items. Although, those will not be shown here for a while, I have been doing some small projects in between and will continue with more.
The first up is the bag I am making for my mom, not a lot of progress, but a little!
I will be quilting these, they are the pockets. Then onto the rest of the bag including handles, lining with a zipper pocket, (I have just learned how to do those). Jennie has been encouraging me to just do it and she was right, not difficult, just need some more practice.
And these are my Marmalade bunting pieces that have been in a storage bin waiting to be finished and hung, maybe in my sewing room, I am not sure yet, but where ever they are they will be bright and cheerful!! I will be adding more to these to make it a nice length.
I did adjust the lighting on these photos on flickr because the sun is hiding behind some clouds, but the fact that there is sun is making me very happy. But about the photos, I hope I have not caused them to be too washed out, I still have a lot to learn about lighting with my camera, I need to read the book I have about photography!!
It looks like Spring has come to our area, it was 91 degrees yesterday, oh my! I was thinking that maybe we were going to go from Winter to Summer and skip Spring all together. I hope not I do enjoy Spring! The yard work has begun, more for my husband and son than me but I did do a lot of leaf raking a couple of weekends ago. Flowers are beginning to bloom!!
I may not say this often but we really do appreciate all your sweet and encouraging comments they really make our day!! Thank you!
Have a great Thursday!!
