Peg the grandbabies are wonderful.  Glad you got to share their pictures with us. 

I have been working on the binding on the quilts I picked up Monday.  Don't have any done yet, but I'm getting there.  I also am working on my birthday 9-patch quilt.  Think I am liking it a lot!!

Dull and grey today.  Need the sun to shine!!!

Have a good rest of the week!!

Oh Peg, those grands are so adorable!!!  The twin "talk" is fun to listen to.  Freya and Ronin don't do it so much anymore.   

My boss's wife had both knees done at once Lynne - it makes so much more sense to me if they both need to be done - just one recovery.  Dumb insurance tho. 

Mom had certainly been two steps forward, then one backwards, but that's still progress.  She was ready to give up Sunday night and had a really tough day Monday, then yesterday, she was ready to get a move on and had a really good day.  It sounds like she will be moved to rehab today or tomorrow.  We sure appreciate all of the prayers and positive thoughts.  I'm going to try to go down again this weekend, but have to see what Mother Nature has in mind first I guess.  I won't be able to go down the following 3 weekends because Natalie will be working either Sat or Sunday each one for a new online banking upgrade and somehow, grandpa just doesn't think he can handle the twins by himself.  haha

Oh, you definitely have some cute grandkids, Peg!  The curls are just delightful!  And yes, Rhonda- it is fun that many of us were first time grandmas on this site!  And many more of us have been grandmas over & over again....and it never gets old!  Babies are a blessing and our group of IQers has been richly blessed! 

Speaking of grandkids, my first one just turned 9 on the 12th!  Shortly after I joined this site Morgan was born!  He's almost as tall as me now!  And he's one of my fellow CYCLONE fans!  (I even bought him new Cyclone shirts for his b'day!)

Spent yesterday in PARADISE going through fabric.  You know how your fabric choices change through the years and I came across some fabric that is:  A) Getting sewn up into pillowcases; B) Getting sewn into Hospice quilts; or C) Getting donated to gal who makes dresses for Haiti girls.  Made over twenty pillowcase kits for the next charity sew day (on the 24th).  Feels good to 'downsize' but I really don't think downsize is the correct word since I still have a good sized stash!!  LOL

Lynne- I have known of a couple other folks who had both knee replacement surgeries done at the same time and faired well!  Hoping Dennis is healing at a great pace!

Hope you mom is doing well, Darce.  Slow and steady wins the race!

Need to head out the door to attend guild meeting.  So better sign off.  Everyone have a great evening and a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!  :)

That's kind of why I pushed for doing them at the same time.  I was afraid he would chicken out after the first one!

Comment by Peg on Tuesday

Lynne - insurance is so annoying and so often makes no sense!  I think doing them together is the way to go - it’d be hard to recover from one and then have to go through it all over again.  

Due to sibling pressure my son and his wife finally started an Instagram acct so they can post pics and vieos of the twins- lol. They’re keeping it a closed group so no one can see anything without their approval - I’ve only watched the 4 videos they’ve posted about 10 times!!- so far.  It’s so precious seeing those babies “ talk” to each other.

im making progress on the Bonnie Hunter mystery.  I hope to finish the body of it today but a friend is having lunch for my knitting group so not sure how much sewing will happen.  Our lunches tend to last most of the afternoon.

Love those curls Peg.  It looks like the big cousins already adore the little ones!

He had the knees done one day apart because the insurance company won't pay to do them the same day.  The dr says they could save $4500 if they did them the same day with two surgical teams working at the same time.  But you do what insurance will pay for.  We have a neighbor that had his done several years ago that way, one surgeon on the right, another on the left working at the same time.

What cuties, Peg!!  Being a grandma is the best! 

Slick roads this a.m., so 2-hr delay here.  Think I'll get the last pass done on a quilt before I need to leave to take Riley to the bus.  Sure glad she doesn't have her school permit yet.  She's eligible to get it at the end of the month, and weather like this is a worry.

Hope you mom is getting better, Darce, and that Dennis is coming along with rehab, Lynne.  

Hugs and prayers for everyone that needs it!

Peg darling photos. I was just thinking, isnt it amazing how several of us have made this grandma journey together here on this site. Just think of how many of us have had our first grandchild together, here.

How cute peg! I love all the curls!

No words for how sweet these pics are, Peg.  You are one lucky woman!
