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".

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.
