Grits for Grandparents

My grandson's school celebrated Grandparent's Day by having a "Grits for Grandparents" breakfast.  This is the first year that I have lived close enough to participate in the Grandparent event.

He had a football game the night before so after the game he came home with me. 

First football season, first jersey.  He is so happy.
We had dinner at Chile's.  We were up  by 6 am the next morning and on our way to school by 6:30 am.  His parents couldn't believe that he was up and dressed so quickly.  We grandparents know the secret.

The menu was grits with cheese, toast, sausage, apple and milk.  We enjoyed a fun breakfast together.  By 7:15 he was off to his homeroom class. 

Times like these make your life worth living.

On a guilty note,  I am working on testing a pattern, which is so much fun, that I hope to share soon.  I am also working on pillowcases for charity.

Happy Quilting,

Reporting In

It's been over a month since I have been on here.  Where did the time go?  I am still unpacking boxes and finding things that have been lost for years!! 

Also, I have been putting together the quilt top for Quilt #17 for the Quiltvillehearts Yahoo Group.  It was shipped off to the volunteer quilter yesterday.  I struggled somewhat with the arrangements of the hearts because they were all different colors with different fabrics (solid, plaids, etc.).  Finally I sat down and sketched out what was in my mind and lo and behold, it went together like clockwork.  Note to self:  Sketch out your ideas; things will be easier with a plan.

The quilt top sent to the quilter:

Now I have to get busy making pillowcases for the Just Needles Guild and for the quilt retreat later this fall.

Happy Quilting,
