    I'm Going to be a Grandma for the First Time!

    Recently found out that I am going to be a Nani for the first time. We are all pretty excited. I have so many ideas and so much I want to make. I wanted to share a few of the projects I have finished since finding out the news.

    I announced the news to my good friends by texting a picture of my new garden flag that I made. Then for Mother's Day, I had to make Great-Grandma To-Be and my expecting daughter a T-shirt using my Silhouette Cameo. Working on a nursing cover-up right now. So much to do, so little time. December 6th will be here before we know it.

    Congratulations! I like to make square receiving blankets. I use one layer of flannel, serge around the edges after rounding the corners, then crochet around the whole thing. My daughter and daughter-in-law got at least 7 for each baby. You can also make burp cloths out of flannel. Very useful!

    My daughter had to tell me to stop sewing when my first grandchild was born.
    I am a material girl. Wanna see my fabric collection?

    How exciting. There is NOTHING like being a Grandmother!! I know I have three grandchildren and I love them all.

    Congrats!!!!
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy!

    When you love and laugh abundantly, you live a beautiful life!

    If you're too busy to laugh.....you're too busy!

    Congratulations. I became a first time grandma just on 8 months ago and there is nothing like it.

    Happy sewing. You are off to a flying start.

    Congratulations. There's nothing that can compare with a Grand-baby.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I really like those receiving blankets. I have to remember that and make a few. Thanks for sharing.
