Gracious how time flys when life gets busy.  It has been two months since I've been on my blog, but I have posted pictures on my Facebook of quilts I've quilted.  I just need to figure out how to connect the two.  I'll have to call up one of the grandchildren for their advice.  And speaking of grandchildren we will be increasing our number to six grandchildren! Yikes!  Somewhere around December 6th.  So guess I'll have to make a new Christmas stocking along with a quilt of course.  Our daughter Kristen (who is expecting) had all five of the children with her to a recent doctor visit.  Audrey Kate ( #1 granddaughter) took a video as the doctor was listening for the baby's heartbeat.  You could hear all of the grandchildren talking in the background, but as soon as the heartbeat could be heard there was silence on the room.  (Kristen might want to run that video at home the next time she wants to get the children's attention.).   The doctor then asked Kristen if she wanted to find out the baby's sex.  Kristen said no she wanted to wait until the baby was born and be surprised. Jacob, who is 11, asked the doctor if she could mail him the results!

During my break from blogging I turned 62.  I'm still processing that little tidbit and keep asking myself where did the time go.  My answer, living each day the best that I can, and always with God's grace.   Of course I've been working on clients quilts each day of the week which I am so thankful that I am allowed to do.  As of June 6th I am now starting my 14th year of Longarm quilting.  I just pinched myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming when I typed that bit of information.  Fourteen years of doing a job that I still get excited about doing.  Thank you to my clients for allowing me to quilt your quilts.  Each of you is a blessing to me.

Blessings to all.
