No sewing yet, but...

Look at Miss Ava...she's already trying to get the hang of crawling and she's not even three months old yet! Sometimes she seems so grown up already.

Last Saturday was my mom and Dad's 50th wedding anniversary. They didn't want a party so we just took them out to eat. And then I got them a certificate for a night away at the Charm Countryview Inn Bed and Breakfast in Amish country. If you want to see pictures of their little trip away, you can find them on my mom's blog HERE.

It seems like everyone who comes to my house gets to nap while they're here. I think I need to get in on that too! lol

No sewing yet but I do have several projects I need to get working on. A friend of Emily's is expecting a baby in January, so a baby quilt will be first on my list. I hope to get the fabric for it either tomorrow or Monday so I can get started.

Ava is growing up so fast already. She was 7 weeks old on Wednesday. She's such a happy girl when she's not mad about something. And when she's mad about something, she quickly lets us know!! LOL

The other day it was a bit cool and momma hadn't brought any pants or socks for her. So I let her borrow a pair of my socks. They look a bit like legwarmers on her but they did the job! LOL

We had quite a pretty sunset here the other night. Actually we've had quite a few pretty sunsets since I moved in here, but I normally don't think to get a picture of them.

I do want to apologize for not posting on here and for not commenting on your blogs. I do read them every day, but my computer time has been limited as I've spent a lot of time taking care of Ava. Emily has gone back to work now so I'll be seeing even more of Ava, which I dearly love, but it definitely cuts into the time I have for other things. And right now (well, always actually) Ava and Emily are more important than anything else.

Ava has good taste

I just had to share some pictures of Ava using the quilt and blanket I made for her. It's nice to know the things I made are loved and are being used. I know it was mom that really chose to use them, but I'd like to think that Ava likes them too! LOL

And here's a more recent picture of her. She's three weeks old today, although it seems like she's been with us forever.

A granddaughter is born

Welcome to the world Miss Ava Grace. She was born at 6:43 this morning. Both mom and baby are doing fine. Emily was in labor less than 8 hours and only had to push for about 15 minutes.

An Afternoon at the Park

Emily and I went to our local state park this afternoon to do a little walking. We thought it might help get her labor started. It didn't work but we walked about two miles and had a great time. We did see lots of nice boats on the lake.

This looks like just a pile of dead wood, but on that top branch is a chipmunk, literally out on a limb! LOL

The river and trees were so pretty today, and it was a great day for walking in the woods.
