    Congrats! We are expecting our 1st in Oct. so baby quilt patterns have been flyin' around my sewing room :)
    They do not want to know the baby's sex, so am being kinda neutral at this point. But then I thought I'd better have both a boy and girl quilt to take to the hospital! Let me know what you make. Have a due date yet?

    Congratulations.....I like that bumper sticker that says: If I had known grandkids were this much fun I would have had them first......Nothing like that first grandchild..they are all so very special, but to see a part of you going on is awesome...each time, may you be blessed and enjoy waiting for this precious little person...

    Due date is in December - they just took the home test on Sunday - and I was just there and left on Saturday... Haiti - she asked us to stay with them until Monday (when we flew out) but we needed to be somewhere else for Saturday, Sunday and Monday... :( - but they skyped us tonight - I do have some peices cut out that she chose a long time ago - we'll see what I end up doing!! I'm excited.

    Yes, congrats Grandma! You'll love every minute. I have 2 and want many more. They are soooo much different than when your own were small.

    Have fun! They're wonderful. Not enough good words to say about them. :-D :-D :-D

    My only daughter is expecting her first girl (has 2 boys already) in June. I am making her a Precious Moments quilt done with color crayons and hand stitching the design. Two more blocks to complete the hand sewing and I can finish it. Will do a quilt as you go block for each design. This grandbaby will be our 17th. She moved 600 miles away 8 months ago and miss her and the boys dearly. Takes us 11 hours to travel to see them. She asked for one of my sewing machines during our Easter visit so hopefully the sewing bug will finally find her. At least when I visit now I have a machine to work on. Plan to make curtains for her living room while she is in the hospital and probably new pillows for her living room. Can't wait.
