Some exciting, happy news . . .

My son, his wife and his 3-year old son are expecting a baby in June.  Can you guess what they are going to be bringing home?  That's right!  A GIRL!  How fun will she be!  Will she be a girly-girl?  Or a tom-boy?  Will she like to dress up in tiaras and tu-tus?  Or wear bib overalls so the dirt doesn't show?  Whatever she will be we are as excited as can be.  This Grandma is going to make sure she comes home from the hospital in a PINK quilt!


Aren't the colors just precious. 


This is the pattern I am using.  Can't wait to get started!

The heck with all the dreary chores that are on my list.  I'm sewing . . .
