As Promised


As promised, I did manage to get a little sewing in this weekend.  It seems like my weekends are the only time lately to get any sewing done.  I needed to get going on a baby quilt for an upcoming baby shower.  This is the Disappearing 4 Patch using a novelty print and various blues.

I’ll be linking this up with Kim for SEWJo Saturday.

We had an exciting week with the arrival of our newest grandson.  He was due next month, but made his arrival a tad early much to the excitement of his sisters and brothers.
