babies and quilts

I can't believe how fast this week went by-I didn't recover from doing yard clean up until around Wednesday night -which I spent watching my granddaughter Alice-here she is: being held by her daddy. Sorry about the not so great shot, I need to learn how to adjust my camera better for close ups!
I spent Thursday night quilting and binding the comfort quilt- with the last few stitches and label getting done last night. I will be driving out to her home to deliver it - sometime today. It's a gorgeous fall day out - with high temps expected and I have a garage to reclaim from all the junk stuck into it during the landscape remodel project-fencing is supposed to go back up today and it's in the garage as well. Tonight I have a few quilty plans...I hope I still have enough energy by then-last weekend's labor showed me I am just not as fast to bounce back as I once was. I will see how many blogs I can read while I sit here and eat breakfast before heading out to the's going to be a busy day for me- hope yours is less hectic!

Congratulations on finishing the quilt. It looks great, and it seems like a perfect match for the beautiful baby. I think they will get along nicely.
Take it easy and don't overexert yourself.

Hi Cher, you've done a super job of getting everything done all summer. It's ok to not bounce back quite as quickly.
Picture of Sweet Baby Alice is just precious..she's soooo pretty..*VBS* Lucky you!!
Hugs, Finn

She is so beautiful Cher! You are sure putting in a workout every weekend since this project started. It will be so worth it!

We find out on Monday whether Jeremy and Chelsea are having a boy or a girl. Between you and me only - I'm pulling for a girl so I will have one of each come next year.

Look at those beautiful eyes!!! Little Missy Alice is Wonderful is a beautiful child. Thanks for the updated pic.

As for bouncing back, hate to say it but we are not as young as we once were! Dang it anyway!!!
