A Little Update . . .

I've been away for the last week, spending time with the Wild Child in Eureka as she gave birth to my first grandchild, little Roman.  Or not so little, actually--8 pounds 4 ounces.  I made the almost 6 hour drive to Eureka, thinking all the way that I would be too late to witness his birth, but I needn't have worried at all because I was there in the birthing room for 25 hours before that happened!  Poor Wild Child, it was a long, hard labor and delivery, but the doctors, midwives, and nurses were terrific and everyone was fine in the end. So Roman arrived on October 30th, just before 8 p.m., and he was dressed up in his first Halloween costume the next day.


Due to one thing and another, I haven't managed to do very much quilting, but while I was gone, I did manage to get the binding on a Halloween quilt . . . just a couple days after Halloween!  I'll take a photo and show you just as soon as I have a chance.  In the meantime, I can share with you two of the Country Homecoming quilts--unlike me, these ladies have been able to get their borders done, and I know you'll enjoy seeing them.

First is Tina's quilt top--


It's so pretty it makes me doubly anxious to get going on mine!  And I know you'll enjoy Nancie Anne's quilt top too.  Just click on her name and it will take you to her blog post.

I never did get photos of my Halloween decorations to share this year, and now it's time to take them down.  But I'll leave the fall decorations in place for another few weeks, and maybe I can get a photo or two to post soon.  Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations, Grandma! Our son was born 33 years ago on October 23rd. Birthday parties for him were so easy because party favors were always Halloween pumpkins, costumes were always encouraged and the weather was always still beautiful! Enjoy your new bundle of joy!
