Exciting Times!

It's been a very eventful week at my house. Today was my daughter's baby shower - and she definitely got showed with gifts from family & friends. Her baby boy is due to arrive in about eight weeks and we can hardly wait. One of my contributions was the baby quilt I made for her and I can finally show it to you now that she's received it.  A simple design of nothing but half square triangles set every which way - no rhyme or reason to the arrangement. I used 10 different Kona solids and a stripe for the back and binding that tied them all together.



And on Monday my son proposed to his sweetheart - in her classroom - with the help of her students (and the principal & office staff) Our whole family was there for the occasion and it was really special. The wedding will be held in December during winter break from his college classes.
Life is GOOD!
