    Hi to everyone... My name is Ruth, a.k.a. Mom, Grandma and, to my 5 Great Grandkids, GiGi. I'm retired but working part-time. Only way I can support my addiction to quilting! Christmas is just around the corner and I'm getting a little nervous. Have 5 quilts to make and am just now finishing the third one! If only I could sew as fast as I can dream up projects. Anyone else with the same problem?

    Gigi! I love it! When my granddaughter, now 15, was born, my son asked me what she should call me. I asked him to give me some time to think about it.

    A day or two later I told him I had narrowed my grandma name to two choices. One was Gma, the other was Oma. He asked why those names. So I told him that I'm used to answering to those names already. In response, he said "Well, GEE, MA!"

    And I said "I rest my case."

    He chose Oma. Later, I found out that Oma is the German version of Grandma. Even later, I found out that the Greek version of Grandma is Ya-Ya! which I would have chosen in a second if I knew about it.

    Enjoy those grands - they grow up even faster than our kids do - but you already know that!

    Welcome from Phx arizona. You are living where I wish I was. I love that area of Washington. As for the quilts, I also have the same problem and I just keep working away knowing they will get done and that they will be loved. I envy you!!!!

    Welcome Ruth. I am the Nanna of 3: 2 girls (5 & 7) and 1 boy (3 months). I retired due to illness and can not return to work. I hope you get as much as I have, out of this site. Good luck getting your quilts finished for Xmas. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Welcome, and I can't keep up with the ideas in my head. I've learned to make a list with ideas so I don't forget my own thoughts.

    Hello Ruth,

    Welcome from Cincinnati Ohio!

    I have been to Lacey Washington many times. My son and his wife live in Lacey and I love the Pacific Northwest. I am not a grandma yet but I also work part time also to support my quilting habit. Welcome to this board! I really enjoy the pics and any info I can get.

    Welcome to the board Ruth, glad to have you here.
    I used to live in between Yelm and Lacey for a while when I was growing up. How is the old haunt?
    Your going to have fun here, lots of ideas floating around. If you want to get those last two quilts done by Xmas here is a word of advice. Limit yourself to one hour a day here, cuz it is so easy to spend many more that you will find that time will fly by on you and Xmas will be tomorrow. ;) Kidding well sorta..
    This place is addictive. But in a good way.. :lol:
    Again, glad to have you here.
    Faith :XD:
