Introducing my newest grandchild, Jackson Scott. He was born on Saturday, October 9th and let me tell you, he's a big boy! His momma was quite a trooper and she put in an amazing two days of labor to bring this wonderful little man into the world.
Look at that hair!! He sooooooo gorgeous!
And there he is, on the scale proving that he weighed 9 pounds, 13.6 ounces!! He looks three months old! I get to meet him on Monday and I can't wait! Just look at that face! He needs to snuggle with Grandma, don't you think?
I am an avid quilter and I live in sunny Clearwater, Florida. I have been quilting for more than 10 years, but have been sewing garments and crafts since I was 12. I love to sew! My husband and I recently had our fourth grandchild, and we couldn’t be more pleased. We have Madelyn Mary, Lucy Ann, Jackson Scott, and Nora Pearl. I recommend Grandchildren to everyone – they really make the world seem brighter! Being a Grandmother has opened so many doors for me regarding quilting projects. I am amazed at the designs that I have created for my Little Darlings that have incorporated quilting into them. See, quilting is the most versatile of arts – it fits everyone in different ways and directions. I am thankful each and every day for this skill! I tend to lean towards scrappy quilts and am working on decreasing my stash…. I have several patterns that I have copyrighted and they are for sale in my etsy store, www.QuiltyIndulgence.etsy.com. Come by and have a look!
I am a member of two quilt guilds. The Procrastinating Quilters, my local guild, is a fabulous group of women with tremendous talent and vision. After every meeting I leave inspired and pleased, looking forward to our next meeting.
My other guild, of equal importance, that I am a member of is a long distance quilt guild - quite small and exclusive. The working title is “The Worlds Smallest Quilt Guild.” It only has three members and I am the OCC (Officer in Charge of Coffee) for this guild. I take this position, and coffee, very seriously and though we don’t have regular meetings, when we do have one, I will excel. This guild also inspires me as the other two members are very talented. Anne is a longarm quilter and she lives in Colorado, and Mare (of the famed blog, Mare’s Nest) is a wonderfully talented quilter and she lives in Wisconsin. Rarely does an hour go by that we aren't texting each other about sewing, children, or general announcements regarding our "Daily Grinds." I wouldn't be nearly as happy without this wonderful friend in my life! A great group to hang out with and I am blessed to be a member.
