Quilter's Life

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day.  Whether you are a mother, have a mother, give or take motherly advice or remember the wonderful things your mother did for you.....I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I also hope you were able to take some time for yourself to do some quilting.

I had a very good day.  My husband let me sleep late, very late.  After I got up, showered and dressed we went out for a late breakfast.  When we got home he did some things I put on his "honey do list" while I made a fresh pot of coffee and went to my studio to play.Accu-quilt Rules!!!Accu-quilt Rules!!!

Shopping With My Grandson

You know we have had our grandson with us this week while our daughter was on a business trip.  We have had a fantastic time.  I have slowed down on my quilting just a bit, but, as I'm sure you understand,  their only young once!!!

My grandson has been around quilts, quilting, thread and fabric his entire life.  We have his trains set up so he can play while I'm busy in my studio.  He loves to help and it is amazing how much he has learned over the years.  He knows the names of most of my tools, he knows how to press fabric, he knows how to measure accurately with a tape measure,  he can sew a straight stitch on a sewing machine, he likes to turn the handle and help cut pieces with my Acccuquilt machine and he is a good fabric shopper.

Grandson's Birthday

My grandson's birthday is in February so my husband and I went to visit and celebrate.  We took presents and "the blue ice-cream" (Cotton Candy from Cold Stone) to go with the cake and party favors my daughter had prepared.  This is the first time we were able to see them since they moved a month ago!  What a great visit.  I really miss them and enjoyed the opportunity to visit in person and get a few hugs and kisses!!!
