A Grands Sewing Project

Happy Tuesday to you. The day has already rushed ahead of me; I've been to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned, ran into a new Pet Store to try a new kibble, met my girls and their kiddos for lunch at a park nearby and also walked Hunter as well as did a load of laundry. I wanted to share the quilt project the  granddaughters made during the last several months; of course during my recuperation, we cancelled sewing, so I'm thinking they might just be glad to be finished with the project. Here is the oldest granddaughter holding her doll quilt. She did such a nice job and I think the girls really enjoyed the quilting process. Initially this project was for Valentine's Day but some of the girls choose different fabrics. I just love how they each show their individuality.
I will try and get the other three girls to pose with their doll quilts; I was so pleased at the finished product and hard work that went into this.
Our next project(after all the doll quilts are completed)will be a pillowcase made from 6 fat quarters.  I will taking them shopping next week for the fabric; they love going to the store with me.
Tonight we have the two oldest grandsons, ages 14 and 11, coming for dinner and a sleepover.  They have requested their favorite meals and we will be watching either The Hobbit or Big Hero 6.  On Friday night we will having 6 granddaughters over for dinner and a sleepover.  This week is Spring Break and we are taking full advantage of it. 
I'm off now to run to get some Easter goodies and a few other items.  I think the wind is picking up, so not sure if I'll ride today.  Yesterday and Saturday I rode 2 miles; want to keep it up, but snow if in the forecast for Friday-which also means we'll need to cover our bulbs and bushes just starting to bloom.
I hope you have a good day.  


  1. Noreen, That is a great job on the little doll quilt. It's wonderful you are teaching your g.daughters. Oh I hope you do not get snow...what with spring break, that is no fun. Mt daughter sent me a picture of her and Emma in S.C. last week on break and they had their coats on...nothing worse than going for fun in the sun and sand , then have to wear a coat. LOL. You are doing well. Praying for your full recovery and lots of fun with the girls. xoxo,Susie
