Grandbabies and Quilts

Tonight we enjoyed dinner at Lonn’s with the family.  It was  both a happy, happy evening as we celebrated the cowboy’s birthday a day early and a sad evening—we are leaving soon and won’t see baby Brooks or his Mom and Dad probably until spring.  And the really sad leave taking was with Laci and Lora—John has received new orders and will be stationed in Germany starting in February for 3-4 years maybe longer—Sad smile!

DSCN3337Note the weird things on the cabinet doors—happens when you have a two year old in residence!!


DSCN3338Stop taking my photo, Meme!!

We had a few snow flurries this morning but nothing sticking—the mountains surrounding us are another story--


Even seasoned quilters have bad days—I didn’t like the design I quilted onto the star quilt—time to rip, rip and rip some more!  You would think I could decide I didn’t like something before I finished the whole quilt??????


DSCN3321Ahhh—much better!


And the placemats—ready for their binding.



We are expecting a hard freeze tonight so I picked the last of the roses—the rose bush decided to bloom profusely late this fall--


Life is good!


  1. Happy Birthday, Mike! See you soon.....

  3. Happy Birthday Mike. Do we see a trip to Germany in your future? Saying good bye is bitter sweet. New adventures ahead.

  4. Happy Birthday, Michael!! This post was filled with lots of beautiful things...the grandchildren, snow on the mountains, quilt, placements, and roses:) Leaving is always tough.

  5. Happy Birthday Michael! Loved all of the photos and I love, love the quilt! I can't imagine taking all the stitching out. My patience would have tanked! My high school classmate surprised me with one of her beautiful quilts recently. I was in tears.

  6. Happy Birthday, Mike. Some nice family time was enjoyed before your sojourn south.

  7. Sounds like you will have a reason for one or more trips to Germany!

  8. Delicious cake and loving family and beautiful quilt and splendid fall roses!!! Life is definitely good.
