In Preparation...

Tomorrow is Gregory's birthday! In preparation for the big day, and one of his gifts, Nana and Sundance have been very busy. The quilting is complete, the sleeve is attached to the back and the binding is cut. As far as I am concerned this bird needs to have his name changed to "Nick", as in: just in the _____ of time! I will finish the binding over the weekend, while on retreat in the mountains, and present it to him on Sunday at his party. There will be two button-on strips that attach to this wallhanging; one with his name and the second one with his birth date, they will be added to the blank space beneath the question. I will spend today preparing those, getting my other projects (vintage UFO's) together to take along; as well as gathering sheets, clothes, food and a sewing machine, chair and all the necessary tools packed up and into the car! No one ever said that having fun was easy.

Let the good times roll...
Life is Good!

Love that line: "No one ever said that having fun is easy." So true.
But even more, I love that Big Bird quilt. It turned out beautifully. Isn't being a grandma just grand! ;-)
