    My grandson, 6 years old, loves Halloween. Not the really scary stuff, but the ghost and jack-o-lanterns, etc. So he asked if I would make him a halloween quilt. He asked me this about 2 weeks before Halloween and I told him I would not be able to get it done in time. He said he liked Halloween any time of the year. He picked out most of the fabric pieces and watch much of my progress. I didn't have it quilted by Christmas, but the top was pieced. He begged me to let him take it home. He said "Grandma, I love it just the way it is!" but I said, "no' to him (probably the first time ever!) and explained that it would get stretched and come apart if he took it before it was quilted. So, he let me keep it to finish it about a week later, and here it is!

    I said "let's see your face!"

    And now he's playing around! I think he likes it!

    He is my special little guy! And he keeps me laughing!!

    Last week he said he wanted some ice water so I filled a couple glasses with water and got the ice tray out and asked him to pop a couple ice cubes into each glass. So he did it and then I asked if he would please put the ice back. He looked at me and said "Grandma, my mommy and daddy don't make me do that at home." Then I said "Well, would you mind doing it for Grandma, please?" Then he said "But Grandma, could I please keep it in my glass to keep the water cold?".

    What a sweetie!

    You're correct, he is a sweetie.
    He lives 8 hours away by car so we don't get to play too much.
    This weekend, they visited! Oh, it was great to have little feet running around. (he's just 2)

    Your quilt is so cute!! And your little grandson is so adorable! My little grandson is only 10 months and has already stolen my heart, just like his big sister did.

    SherriB - they are so sweet. He looks like he will give the world a run for the money!! She is adorable. I had 4 brothers and three sons and my sons are having sons, I wouldn't know what to do with a little girl (I could figure it out, though!!)
