Quick Check In From Minnesota

Just a quick post from Minnesota. I am enjoying my visit with my parents. I had dinner with all my brothers the other night and it was a good time.

On Tuesday DS #2 called me. He asked me if I was ready to be a grandma again! Of course, I am. I do not know my first grandson very well (long story). But this grandchild is going to live 5 miles away from me and will be spoiled by this grandma.

So what's a new grandma going to do? Shop, of course! Mom and I went to Target. I found these adorable onsies. A nice little wardrobe to get started.
We went to the quilt shop and I found these clearance half-yard fabric cuts.
I can see two or three little quilts coming from these fabrics.
I have been working on mom's Shoo Fly quilt. Here is what the table looked like last night. This morning I have a pile of ironing to do so I can start assembling the blocks. I won't get the quilt done before I leave tomorrow, but I have made significant progress.
I am way behind on reading and commenting on blogs. I won't be able to catch up until I get home this weekend. I hope everyone is having a great week!

Congratulations Grandma!! I have one on the way too - in March. We don't know yet if we have a baby boy or girl. This is my son and his wife, and they have two boys already -so we are hoping for a little girl. You know how that goes though, boy or girl, the baby will be loved beyond measure.
