    I have 1 granddaughter, 4 months old, and I still have 3 children at home. My daughter is attending a local college, and I homeschool my boys ages 15 and 12. I don't get as much time as I would like, but I try to fit in a small portion of time each day. I am currently learning handpiecing.

Every one wants a quilt for Christmas! But I think only the 2 youngest this year. The youngest is only 1 month old! If I had known how fun grandkids are, I would have had them first!
    that doesn't add up: try 12 boys, 5 girls. The oldest , my gs is living with us.

    I have three of my own, with one more due in January. My new husband has 5, so together we will have 9 in a couple months! They are wonderful!

    I have two granddaughters, two step-granddaughters, and one grandbaby on the way. Gender is TBD.

    Having my granddaughters is the main reason that I started sewing and quilting again. What I make for my grandchildren will almost certainly outlive me, and be a lifelong reminder to my grandchildren of their grandmother who loved them enough to make a quilt for them.

    Wow, there are a lot of us! Being a grandma is the greatest! We have five, three boys and two girls from 1 to 6 years old.

    I have twin granddaughters that will be 15 yrs. this month.
    All I hear about is driving permits. I would like to roll back time and keep them little.

    I have five grandchildren, and love them all so much. Wished I could have had them before I had my children!
