Home Again

I'm home again, Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival was fantastic. I'm inspired and excited to begin on new projects, including this precious baby jacket. I bought this pattern by Jackie Clark, I'll hold off on making it as long as I can, until my daughter tells me what color to stitch it up; she should know that next month! I also purchased a few things for baby quilts at the Vendors Mall... can you detect a pattern of buying here? A friend told me that won't ever change, once one becomes a grandparent; that's perfectly OK with me! I'm going to enlist some help in putting together a slide show for an upcoming post to highlight the incredible quilts that I photographed, each and every one were simply amazing! Stay tuned...

Life is Good!

Looking forward to the pics.

That is a lovely jacket pattern. Just as you never stop being a mother, you never cease to delight in being a Grandmother!!

I, too, am going to be a first time grandma (in June). It's a boy. I've noticed everything I buy now is baby focused. Bib patterns, quilts, blankie buddies, etc. Isn't it wonderful? Congratulations!

Everyone should be able to be a Grandmother, That was so exciting for me, just to see your child with their child, AWESOME!!!!! A baby just makes life so much "GOODER"" LOL ( Is GOODER a word? I bet all grandmothers know exactly what I'm talking about!

Glad you had a good time - I look forward to seeing the show. The jacket pattern is cute - and getting a new grandchild sounds like a great excuse to buy stuff to me!

I love the dog jacket....just think Uncle Hannes could adorn the pockets.

You are going to LOVE that jacket pattern. I've made it, um, I think 6 times now? Each time it's adorable!!! (and easy!!!) Speaking of which, it will be spring eventually -- time to dig it out and make a new spring version for my own little one. (one tip -- go ahead and make muslin templates for each of the sizes for this one -- it's worth the time and effort!)
