Big day yesterday….

Last night I searched for fabrics for binding for the Trip Around the World that I just quilted.  I didn’t have very many fabrics that go with these mid 1990s fabrics in the quilt.



Yesterday was a long day, trip into Chicago, 3 hours at the eye dr., and trip back home.  The tumor in my eye has shrunk a little more so I was happy and so was the dr.  On the way home we stopped to eat lunch (2:30 p.m.) and my son called to tell me my granddaughter was in labor with her first baby (my first great grandbaby).  Around 11 p.m. after a few complications a little boy was born.  I don’t know many details yet (I type this around midnight and set it to post at 5 a.m.).

  1. Congrautlations….GG (Great Grandma) This is what my grandson calls his great grandma. That is great news from the eye doctor. Take care and enjoy this first great grandson.

  2. Nothing is as wonderful as a new baby in the family. So happy to hear all is well now and I know he will be anxious to meet his awesome Great Grandma ~ congratulations Wanda. Give his grand parents my best wishes and of course his parents too..

    Oh yeah ~ the binding, the two you have shown us will be perfect, but which one ? I will check in tomorrow.

  4. I'm glad everything went well at the Dr.and the tumor has shrunk.

    How exciting to have a new ggrandbaby! Do they live close enough that you will get to see him ofen?

  5. Wonderful news Wanda, first your eye, then the GG Baby, I'm sure you already have a new quilting project planned for the latest in your family. So glad all was well after a lengthy time and problems. These days we are all so relieved when a healthy baby and Mum are there at the end of the day. Greetings to all, and congrats from NZ, Jean.

  6. Wonderful, wonderful news!! Don't worry about replying to me-you have enough to do. So very glad about the shrinking tumor and a greatgrandbaby is just icing on the cake!

  7. Congrats on the new grandbaby and on your eye tumor going down a bit. For the binding, I would forget 90's fabric and think about using an unexpected fabric. I'm thinking a black and white stripe or something else would jazz up the 90's look in an unexpected way.
