A good day!

Well, I did make it out to my Wonky Bits group yesterday, because DD1 spent time with/doing for my parents! Woohoo! You are wonderful to your grandparents L! 8-)
She has a close bond with my folks because my mom babysat her for a big part of her first year of life, while I worked till DD2 came along... 8-)

So, I was happy to be at the pot-luck we had at Wonky Bits yesterday...
As per usual, we had great food and a wonderful lunch!
Thanks ladies! 8-)

This is Kn's baby quilt, binding still needs stitching down. She is making it for a future great grandchild. One that is but a thought right now... 8-)
Apparently she will be making a few of them...
This little wall-quilt shows Kn's artsy side, made as a sample for teaching I believe... It is made with all kinds of fabrics, with yarns couched between the blocks, as well as couched swirls...
Do click on the photo for a closer look...
Nicely done Kay! You never seize to amaze us! 8-)
Lp is using up all her left over Christmas fabrics to make Christmas quilts for her 2 grandchildren... I'd say she had lots of left overs! 8-)
Looking good Lp! 8-)
Es brought in her flannel scrap quilt she's been putting together...
That is going to be one comfortable/snugly quilt Es! 8-)
I trimmed up my Sunflower quilt yesterday. We've got the room and the big tables to do that where we gather, so may as well use it... I also did some hand-quilting on my Many Thanks quilt...

Well, that is it for my free day yesterday, today brings me to help out my parent's again. Mom is doing well, and yes she is pumping in the fibreous foods to ward off those hard problems from the T3s... 8-)

PhD ladies, I hope you are having fun and making progress with your PhDs! Sorry I don't have the time to give you the personal encouraging comments right now... Soon!

Happy stitchings everyone! 8-)
