What is a Grangran to do when a 2 yr old little boy pick up a very ugly piece of fabric and states “Mine”? Well, this Grangran jumps up and makes a very small throw. The finished size of the throw was 28 1/2″ x 32″. Obviously, I didn’t have much of said ugly fabric. I backed the little throw with black minkee.  Happy quilting!

My little boys

Just a few pictures of the boys. Both boys are growing like little weeds. I think Greg is trying to catch up with Nikolas.

This is what Greg’s face looks like 95% of the time. He is the happiest baby.

See ya next week.

I haven’t done any quilting since Greg was born. Greg is very good, sleeps, eats and poos. ;o Doesn’t require being rocked but he does require his paci. I have found the pattern I will be using for the next mini booty swap and hope to pick up the tea towel, background fabric and backing fabric next week. No, you can’t see it might give it away. Here are a few photos of my 2 beautifully handsome grandsons. 😀  Nikolas loves Greg and is very helpful, when asked.   Lacy let’s Nikolas think he is holding the baby. Nikolas tells Greg “shhhh” when Greg’s little world falls apart. I can’t imagine who would teach Nikolas to tell Greg that. 😀 Nikolas and I point at each other and when our fingers touch we buzz.  Have a great week! Sew lots

P.S. I haven’t took the time to thank everyone for their prayers the day Greg was born. Your prayers were heard as due to an error that was quickly corrected, Greg and Lacy both could have died. Unfortunately, two nurses have been suspended and will probably loose their license. It is really hard for me to still talk about nor do I want to but I know if all my friends had not been praying the story would have had a different ending. Thank you so much and may God richly bless each of you.

Monday Monday

My plan was to show Greg’s finished zoo animal quilt in this post but I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of it. Lacy had hard cramps all night with spotting on Sunday night. Monday morning she went in and let her doctor check her. Doctor said she was in the very early stages of labor but it could take all week. 😦 If Lacy hasn’t had Greg by Friday she will go back to the doctor. So if you would like to see pictures of the washer, dryer, vacuum, me chasing Nikolas and folded laundry I can help you. 😉 I was just too tired to do anything fun. I need to get ahead on my  quilting post so it don’t look like I feel off the internet. Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Terrible Twos

In one month, Nikolas will be two yrs old. Today he practiced the terrible twos. I think he tried everyone’s patience. He had a slight hissy fit about the size of a Texas tornado to get in the laundry basket. Then he got mad at me for taking his pictures.  I don’t think it was a good day for a little boy.

Boys will be boys

Jon and Nikolas had a blast with this box. Gunner wasn’t too sure about all the rukus.

My week and a pondering

Thanks to the darling spider I am now a week behind on everything. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeecccccccccccccckkkkk! I’m sure spiders are of the devil. There isn’t a lot of things that creep me out but spiders do. I’ve been know to abandon my vehicle on the side of the road because of a spider. I understand that I can easily smash one with a tissue but I can’t get past how creepy they look. I can shoot a snake, I can dress a deer out, I can take a mouse out of a trap but I can not stand to look at a spider. *shudders*

Moving on! I haven’t done anything this past week but lay in the bed, lay on the couch and sit at the computer for brief periods of time. By Thursday I was losing what mind I had left and my favorite son-in-law drove me to Walmart to buy a book. After browsing the books and magazines, I came home empty handed and went back to bed. Note: For those of you that don’t know, Jon is my only son-in-law but he is still my favorite. 😉

I think it was on Tuesday that I received a box from Betsy. Betsy had sent me an email stating to open the main box as there was something in the box for the boys. I was sleeping when the mailman dropped off the package but when I woke up Nikolas met me in the hall with the package saying “Na Na” I have no idea how he got Na Na out of GranGran. Nikolas grabbed this piece of fabric so it will become a quilt for him. 0954The other two pieces were cloth books. 095620955How cute! I have never made a cloth book but I intend to get busy on these projects as soon as I get my Holiday Swap done. Everyone is having fun with this package that Betsy sent. 0953I think everyone has squeezed the package and made a guess. lol Thank you so much, Betsy.

Starting this morning I must keep my nose to the grindstone. Today I will be working on my quilt for the Holiday Booty Swap and I’m hoping (crosses fingers) by day’s end I will be working on the binding. I want this package in the mail no later than Wednesday. I will work mornings starting Monday, in the afternoon I am not planning anything in case I need to rest and at night I will work on the prayer shawl.

I’m sure by now you are dieing to know what I’ve been pondering. Why is it that the good pills are always as big as a horse? Now keep in mind horses are HUGE! 0950Anyone that know the answer to this, please share.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Nikolas saw the specialist Wednesday morning who did bloodwork. Nikolas has Fifth’s disease, should be cleared up with Amoxicilan, I was so reliefed. He is not the easiest baby to live with right now. We know he feels bad because usually is very good about taking his meds and that has become a horrible fight.

The last two days I have been busy making Halloween bags. Seems the friend showed her friend the halloween bag and everyone has been calling wanting one. I made 2 of each of these. I like the spiders the best and I really don’t like spiders. DH likes the blue the best. Lots of smiling little kids giving out hugs to me the last 2 days. 😀 I like hugs.

Plus I also made these 2 little bags. Fun Fun and fast. 

I think tomorrow I will work on Greg’s quilt. I need to look for animals for the next quilt. So little time for all the quilting I want to do.

The doctor didn’t do any bloodwork.He did swab his throat because it was red with white spots. “Yep, looks like either 5th disease or measles. Let’s just let it run it’s course.” The Army isn’t happy and Nikolas has another appt in the morning at 0920.

Road trip cancelled

Living on a federal post isn’t always fun. Last night we discovered a rash on Nikolas, we researched and my daughter called the ER on post. They think Nikolas has the measles. They immediately quarintined us until they know for certain. If Nikolas has the measles he will be the 5th reported case on post. Nikolas has a doctor’s appt this afternoon at 2 CST.
