Here Comes the Week-end

The two oldest grandkids went home with their dad and my daughter and the baby stayed over on Thursday night. We had a fun time as two grown women - instead of any mother/daughter interactions. We consulted on my latest effort. Friend Gretchen is retiring at the end of the school year and is quite a "purple" girl, so this seemed perfect. I have actually made 7 of the prairie braid strips, but by the time I add the outside borders (dark purple polka dots) I was thinking perhaps this is enough for a wall hanging. Right now it's about 42 inches long and 21 inches wide.

I will get this done, eventually, but at least by the first of June. Next, I will (I WILL!!!) get busy with a number of UFO's. Then with a very clear conscience I can look for other fabric to add to my "collection".
Happy Friday.

Day #1

Last night my friend Christian came over and helped me through the steps to get this site set up. Oh so very exciting. I kept thinking about what I wanted to say, when I should have been sleeping. Deary me! This morning my 3 grandchildren [7, 4, 5 mo] arrived for Nana to take care of[. My daughter is going in for day surgery and her DH is going with her. So I have the duty! Luckily it is sunny and promises to be in the high 50's or even 60. Thank goodness for that and the nearby park.

I have been keeping pictures of quilts I have made, but unfortunately they were not on the digital camera. So I will try to figure out how to get them over here. Meanwhile, I will try to import my most recent completed project. My friend Claudia will turn 60+ next week and this is for her. It's approximately 12 inches square. For the center stars I used 3/4 inch "Thangles". Challenging.

Onward to my Nana duties.
