Busy Busy!

I have been having so much fun lately! I have pieced a few quilts but have been trying to get some of the ones I have already pieced quilted! My grandaughter Jenna has been in to visit with me and to finish piecing her quilt that she started a while ago. She is so busy with school and other activities that it is fun when she has time to come in to visit and sew. Here is a pix of the quilt she pieced and I just finished quilting. She hasn't had time to learn how to quilt on my machine yet so that will be her next lesson. I am excited about teaching her and hopefully she will love the quilting process and continue it as she gets older.

Well, we can't leave her younger sister out! The quilt below is the one I was quilting on when she stopped in last week with her mom and sister and asked me if she could have it. Of course this grandma can't resist when they ask so sweetly so I just finished quilting and binding this quilt and it is ready for her to take home.
I have been enjoying staying home and not working so much! I have worked outside the home for over 30 years and it took me a while to get used to being home and now I am so content in my little world that sometimes it takes alot to get me out of here. With all I have been doing here at home I just can't for the life of me figure out how I found time to go to work!!
Happy Quilting to all!!
