this is one proud paw paw LOL after six granddaughter's , Noah Ellis Johnson our first grandson was born just shy of 2 weeks ago

I've been making jelly(L) is wild plum (r) is grape from our grapes

I've been gardening & experimenting with herbs

catching up on reading & studying

this will be an on going day & night project, little more than 5 years ago, yea too long right? my Aunt Annibelle brought me her quilt frame, which I have now, it's over 100 years old!anyways she taught me to quilt the old ways, paper piecing etc.no new gadgets or templates etc for her LOL,she is getting up in years now & starting to show signs of dementia ,every square every row all hand sewn ed is why it will be an on going project for I want to finish & show her I did it! while she still has the memories of the beginning of this quilt

and in the middle of all this fun & excitement there are shows to get ready for,as you can see that came to a brief hault LOL but it's time to jump back on that sewing wagon, I know Fall comes before Christmas but I'm losing my sewing mojo so I'm thinking of venturing out & whip up some Christmas here in a few days LOL

I always schedule a one day show for Labor Day Weekend, and then wish I had not, then it's 2 months until the next one. Congrats!! on your grandson....Grandpa really looks happy. Until next time...take care.
