A Little of This and That

I took a slight detour from working on my Jubilee quilt last week and made this for our local Children's Home Society as a charity quilt. I'll get it quilted and turned in soon.  The 5" squares were from the free table at guild last week.  We're always short of boy quilts so this should be perfect.
Here's a  progress picture of the berries and leaves on my Jubilee quilt.  It's kind of slow going but it's looking wonderful (to me at least!).
Then we went to Asheville, NC for the long weekend and I was completely distracted by these 3 little munchkins.  Oh my goodness........
Here's my son's family after  the baby dedication Sunday morning.
Both my children and their families - love these people!!
And looking slightly wilted after a long fun-filled weekend, a very happy Nana Girl and her hubby.  We celebrated 39 years while we were up there.  Life doesn't get any better :)!! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.

What beautiful kids and grandkids! You are living the life!! Aren't grandchildren just the best? I live in Charlotte, so you were close by. Love the boys quilt, I have some of these same checks and plaids, and you're right, little boys seem to get neglected in charity quilts.. have fun..

Darling pictures of a beautiful family. I know you are counting all your blessings. And "wilted" is the perfect word to describe how a Nana feels after spending time with grandies... worth every precious moment of it!
