We had a great weekend with the christening of our newest grandson. It is always such a delight to welcome a new baby into the faith. Our very good friend, Fr. G, did the baptism. He said that this was the 42nd baby from our extended family that he has christened. As well, he has done most of the weddings and a few funerals. I cannot imagine our lives without him. Of course my camera went dead when I started to take pictures so these are the best that I could get.
The trip to his church took us along the beach. It was such a gorgeous day and we stopped to watch a pod of dolphins playing in the waves. They were having such fun chasing each other in and out as they rode the surf.
I've been playing a little catch up on my quiltalongs after being away for several trips. It has felt good to get into the studio and do some sewing. I had some shirts and sweatshirts to embroidery as well so that machine was running while I was playing with my blocks.

My niece asked me to make a few burp cloths for her to give as a gift. These are always so much fun to make.
Needless to say, I will be away from my computer for a few days while we are enjoying our houseguests. I will be checking in again sometime next week. I hope everyone enjoys their week ahead.
