I just finished changing the bedsheets and vaccuming the carpet. I opened the windows, to let the cool breeze air out the room. Aahhhh, fresh air. It has been so hot & humid, that a breath of cool air is refreshing. Yesterday, a storm blew across mid-Michigan as I was driving home from work. Traffic slowed to 45 mph on the freeway, and many pulled off to the side of the road or under overpasses. I didn't note any hail, but my 3-1/2 year old granddaugter told me all about the "ice on the ground", when we visited later in the evening.
What fun to play with the granddaughters. The 4-month old continues to teeth, much to the chingrin of my breast-feeding daughter. I cautioned her on the possibilities of biting and she responded with an emphatic, "She already has!" Later, I sat on the floor and helped the 3-1/2 year old put together a puzzle. She chatted the entire time. Every time that I put a piece into the puzzle, she responded with, "Good job! You're good at puzzles, Grandma!" I told her Mom that I needed to start a Grandma/Granddaughter day every couple of months. I can just see us baking cookies, reading books, playing dress-up and running around outside. I'm already planning that first date!
I hope to get a lot more accomplished on my applique Hungry Catepillar quilt blocks, this week-end. Here's what I have done so far.
My eldest daughter is getting excited to see the finished product. My grandson is growing so fast. When I visited on Thursday, he kept babbling while I held him. I seriously think he is surpassing his older cousin in size and weight. He will be three months on Monday. The quilt has to get finished...so I can work on other projects, as well. I saw the cutest quilt in Fons & Porter's Summer 2012 Scrap Quilts magazine.
Check out page 24 - Tangerine Zoo. My favorite in the magazine. It's still on newsstands; I picked mine up last week-end, while on vacation.
Enjoy your Saturday!
