I Love Being Busy!

AND boy have I been busy!  I've had two of my grandchildren for 5 entire days!  I had forgotten how wonderful it is to have a 18 month old and a 5 year old in the house!  Natalie is 18 months old and is amazing!  I know, I'm a typical grandmother but she really is amazing and so much like her aunts were when they were little!!  Within 24 hours of being here she had figured out how to open the bathroom door, how to get one of the plastic toy containers and turn it upside down and get to anything she wanted!!

Our grandson, Austin is 5 and is in kindergarten!  It's been MANY years since I have had to get someone up to catch the bus!  The first morning I went in to wake him up and he was in bed completely dressed for school!  The second day he got off the bus the first thing he said to me was "Meme, I like that bus ride!  It's much faster than when I go home!".  Austin spent a couple of hours with me in my Quilting room while I was working on the Long Arm, we may have another quilter in the family someday!!

The remainder of my week has been spent quilting.  The Scarlet Thread is busy getting ready to deliver quilts for the Quilts of Valor.  Here's what I've been busy doing!

Jill Made this Quilt for QOV and it is beautiful!  The Quilting pattern is Berry Vine and the quilt was entirely made up of scraps!  It is beautiful!  The most wonderful part about this quilt (besides the fact that it is being donated) is that Jill completely stepped out of her comfort zone of carefully planning and matching all of her fabrics and made this beautiful scrappy quilt!  Congratulations Jill!!
