Thank you all and I have so many role models that I can't mess this gig up.  Love the quilt Carol it is precious.  Marcia glad you are getting along better with your knee. Peg, so glad your little grandson is making his way and learning social skills, he sounds like a happy guy. Jackie, I miss seeing you at work, but so glad you are able to watch Jaelyn and be with her as much as possible, you are a great Grandma and Mother-in-law.

New baby - new grandparents -- how wonderful.  Congrats to all!  Finished a baby quilt last night for a friend's new granddaughter.  Baby due in 2 weeks so I made it!  Coloring is a little subtle compared to the one in the pattern but it's what Mom prefers.

Congrats Nancy.  Babies are just the best invention 

Diane - have fun with all those little pieces!

i’ve been quilting and sewing a lot this week.  DH is working 8-8 every day since it’s spring break week and several partners have young kids and are on vacation.  So I’m kind of on my own all week.   

On a non quilt related subject, my grandson who is on the autism spectrum had a great day yesterday.  He’s been going to preschool which he loves but has had difficulty in knowing how to interact with other kids.  They been working on this at school and home.  Yesterday he went up to another child and said “ Hi, (child name) Do you want to play with me?”  And they went off to play like it was no big deal- lol.  That’s a big step for him and a big improvement over grabbing toys away from kids when he wants to play with them.  Mom and Dad were so excited.

congrats Nancy! You are going to have so much fun, your life is forever changed!.

I've been playing with scrap triangles. I am doing a online stash buster quilt that uses  1 1/2" and 3" HST. I started going through my 1 1/2" bins getting them pressed, ready to sew. I spent yesterday working on one small pile,,there were 928 hst in that one pile! have 5 more piles and 3 bins left to go through. Something tells me I won't make a dent in my stash

Congratulations Nancy, it is definitely the best club ever!  

Comment by Jackie Orton yesterday

Congratulations, Nancy!!  Grandma is the best job EVER!!  You will have so much fun and laugh so much at their antics as they grow.

In fact, that is my job today...little Jaelyn will come over today while her mom goes to Pella to do some things and get started on 'thank yous' for all the cards, memorials, food, and flowers for her mom's funeral.  Hoping to get Jaelyn outside for a while...she's definitely and outdoor girl.

Got half of that top quilted yesterday afternoon, so I'll try to get a little more done before my company comes!

Well, my coffee calls!

Hugs and prayers.
