Monday's Child is Fair of Face

Well, I was hoping it would be Full of Grace, as that what was given us Monday morning...

But, then, Lori IS very fair of face. :-)

We had fun Monday morning! Taking advantage of Spring Break from school, she was here around 9:00 A.M. and sewed two blocks together (midst all my chattering!). I cut more pieces... enough for three more to be sewn!

We won't get another chance to sew this week, as I'm having fun being a grandmother. And, perhaps it will be quite a "spell" as Spring is 'round the corner!

Three More Blocks

Everything is here, in my basement, so I'm feeling pretty responsible for the slow progress on our quilt. Lori will be here Monday morning, as she'll be on Spring Break. We wish we could get together more often this week, but my family will be here.

FYI: Our daughter is bringing her two children (our grandchildren, obviously!) Monday afternoon. Daddy has to stay home. They will all three spend the night. Mommy and L are going to visit a friend in Illinois on Tuesday through Thursday. And little A and I get to "hang out" for two days and nights together. Yea! I am so excited!

On Thursday, Mommy and L will return here and spend another night. Then they'll all leave Friday for home.

Sooo. All that is to say, I've done one block a day for the past three days. I've cut enough pieces for two more blocks, but it looks like I'll have to hunt for a bit of additional fabric before Monday. Friday might be a nice day for a trip! ;-)

Here is a photo of our 16 blocks and that crazy pillow!
LOL.No, they're not sewn together yet.
You'll be able to see why, later.

One More Post

Wouldn't it be nice if there were "progress pictures" here tonight? But, other than doing preliminary cutting and a bit of sewing, Lori and I have nothing concrete to show for the evening's work. However, we always spend a good deal of time visiting!


Little Bits of Fabric

Little bits of fabric
Sewn into a quilt
Form a warm and loving blanket
From which memories are built.
And when you seek peace and comfort
In the quiet of the night
It will keep you warm and snug
Until the morning's light.
