Eight months later...
And I'm still here, lurking in blogland and in Facebook. I'm ashamed to say that my time has been monopolized by the ever-so-popular FB. Don't get me wrong..I enjoy reading all the posts on FB and occasionally pop in a few of my own, but I have missed my blog time. I also miss my laptop. I still have it, of course, but since I was lucky enough to become the owner of an iPad, my laptop has sat on the corner of my desk, patiently waiting for moments like these when I finally decide to leave my comfy stuffed wingback chair and come sit in my armless, rolling desk chair. You see, I'm not a big fan of the iPad typepad. I prefer the old-fashioned (giggle) keyboard setup. And so, without further ado, I shall let you see what pretties I have been working on. One more thing...I'm a new grandma! Baby boy Goff was born on August 8, 2011 and we are just ecstatic!
This collection of hats and socks was donated to the hospital nursery in honor of Baby Goff's arrival. In retrospect, I think some of the hats may be a bit big for newborns. But, I hope the families that receive one will enjoy it as their baby grows.
Look at this treasure! This baby quilt was made by a great-aunt who passed not too long ago. Her son gifted me with it since I had moaned and groaned that I had not ever had the chance to buy one of her handmade, handquilted pieces. How sweet was that! It's worn and torn in spots, but I will treasure it! Thanks, Sonny!
Maybe you've noticed that I'm spending my time knitting these days instead of quilting. I have made a baby quilt for a friend and the iPad case at the top of this page. I first made one for Judy and so I had to make one for myself :-). One final picture of my sweet KK. She's a big sister now, ya know!
