Catching Up!

I've been keeping busy since I last posted a few months ago.  I would definitely post more often if I could do so on my iphone or ipad... the downloading of photos taken on my iphone from the cloud to my laptop is a royal pain. Anyway, my younger son and his wife are expecting their second child, our second grandchild the first week of August.  And this is the first girl baby in my family in years- almost generations!!  I am BEYOND excited for our family of males to get a little injection of ESTROGEN!!  So, I've been making some little charm pack utility baby quilts for her!!

I take a charm pack with 42 five inch squares and arrange them in a 6 by 7 layout.

Sometimes, I add a bit of fusible machine applique in one of the corners for a bit of whimsy!

Although I don't think my daughter-in-law is big on pink, I've been waiting FOREVER to sew quilts for a girl!!  

So pink and purple is happening!! 

My son and his wife found lots of uses for these smaller baby quilts, so I hope these will get used allot, too!!

So you can see they are not ALL pink!!  LOL!!

Grandson Neal is excited about getting a new baby sister!!

He is growing up so fast!!

 He is into trucks and baseball!  And we are into HIM!!  

Sooooo, what are you into these days?
