Oh Wyatt...I hope I get done!



And so here I am on Sunday morning wondering if this will be my new grandbaby's first disappointing moment with his nana???  His baby shower is next Saturday, now less than a week away and I have yet to quilt his baby quilt!  He is due at the end of January but I really want to have it done for the baby shower.  Today is the day!  Because this next week is a brain twister.  My quilting mojo is totally off and it is my long work week at the hospital.  My one day off will be spent with business stuff and then I am driving over the mountain on Friday to pick up one of my dearest friends from childhood who is flying in for a girlfriend weekend and to attend the baby shower!!!  You know what that means...I am driving, so no stitching in the car! Dang!  No tacking the binding down!  It has got to be done and wrapped before I pull out Friday morning!

Which means...I gotta get off this computer and start quilting!  Send me good quilting mojo thoughts!!!

Sorry, no quilt market photos because Anne Cottons 'n Wool is exhausted!  She needs you to send her some good vibes...so, send them here cause she'll check in here when she gets a chance and maybe she'll send us more photos!

  2. I have faith in you Nana Anna. It is amazing how we manage to get things done while working under pressure. I know Anne and Anne have had a lot of experience in that department. Sending Anne lots and lots of good vibs..... breath Anne, and again, and another big breath....and no late night partying tonight. Hoping market is going well and you had no big hiccups this market.... I noticed there is no inflatable bed in the booth this year. Have a great market!! Pauline

    I am horrible at finishing, but need to just sit down and do it.
    I realized yesterday that i had another one I had forgot about, so need to bind and quilt them.

  5. Oh now you know you can do this Mojo or No. I have every faith that you will be the winner with the grandson. Just like I am with mine. I am so missing him and can't wait for Christmas break, seems that will be the first we can have him. He is in the 5th grade now, wonder how long he will still want to come and stay with Gumma and Papa Steve? I hope forever!!! Dana turned 16 in September and for her birthday I gave her her Freedom. I released her from the court ordered grandparents right visits. Hope she comes by once in a while and sees us. I already miss her so much. Now you, YES YOU, get to work on that quilt. :)

  10. If it makes you feel any better, the last baby shower I was at had a knit baby blanket that was maybe 2/3 of the way complete still on the needle and attached to a skein of yarn in one of the gift bags. Once the mother opened it, the giver explained that she was still working on it. The mother-to-be gamely admired the work so far, then handed it back, at which point the giver worked furiously on it through the rest of the shower. Admittedly, the giver could knit and talk/admire baby things with great proficiency, but I do think the blanket went home with her and not the mother.

    I am sure your grandbaby will love the quilt the moment he is born, whether it is in his baby shower photos or not. Good luck getting it done, but don't stress!

  11. I'm sure that you'll get your grandbaby's quilt finished in time. What we're willing to do for them is unbelievable. One of the things that I did for my first granddaughter's shower (which I hosted) was to cut out hearts from every pink fabric that I could find and had the guests, parents, and grandparents, all write messages to her and sign them. Then, later, I made a small wallhanging with all of those messages for her to read so that she will always know how much she is loved and the advice or comments as they thought just about her coming into her life. It was great to read them when she was a baby, but now that she's 14 yrs old, it's even more precious to us all.

    Enjoy the shower and the visit from your friend!
