Quilt With Us

My daughter has finished and defended her dissertation at Northwestern University! I am really proud of her getting her doctorate, so I hope you don't mind if I write about it here. Her baby (my granddaughter!!) is due in about 3 and a half weeks and I am going to Chicago next weekend for her baby shower. Then she will graduate in the middle of June. We will be there for about 2 weeks in June & I am so excited. I will post a picture of her baby quilt tomorrow although I am not quite finished. One more block and the borders and the top is finished. I doubt I can get it quilted by next Saturday, but I will try. 

My mom is moved in and settled in the assisted living and doing much better! She is really happier being around the other women, and isn't as lonely as she was, but she misses her dog.

Congratultions to your daughter!  That's a lot all at once.  So glad you will get to go out there and be with her and not have to worry about your mom. I'm so pleased she is settling in to her new home and enjoying the company of others her age. That's terrific!
