Ode to Grandmothers…

Good day! I was thinking of my new grandson, Jack, and how he melts my heart every time I see him. I decided to draw something up, hence this next cartoon:

It is incredibly fun to watch your grandchildren grow. Jack is smiling and he is very engaging these days. Getting down on the floor with him is my favorite thing to do. He and I coo and make noises at each other, while I talk to him. He is so blasted cute!!

A thank you to Barb, quilt piecer extraordinaire, for sending me a box filled with quilt books and items. This was a Random Act of Kindness mailing.

I’m still working on my new headers. The one I am using now I rather like, though it still needs some work. Eventually, I will get my act together.

Enjoy your weekend and week! Hugs, from Carla

A Visitor!!

Tomorrow, I am excited to host a visitor- my good friend, Lynn of Creative Stitches blog.  She needed to travel to Northern CA for business purposes, so of course she had to stay here!  This is her 4th visit to my home, 2 of the times she came with Jamie Wallen in tow (xx00 to Jamie!).

I like to spoil Lynn… she gets really nice bedding… I believe that life is too short for low thread count, so she gets freshly laundered and softened luxurious 100% Egyptian cotton  high thread count sheets to sleep under!  LOL!  Nothing like fresh, clean sheets to snuggle under!!  She also gets my guest room, which has a lovely view of the ranch.

As soon as her business is completed, then we are planning to do some joint art projects and have some fun!  I can’t wait!!  We are planning to turn my Great room into a huge work place patterned after Art Adventure Weeks with another dear friend, Lori at Art & Play.

While Lynn is here, I am also opening up my house for a free machine maintenance class and social so that quilters may learn more about their machine, also test drive my machine if they wish.

Keep  watching… lots of art to share this week!  Hugs, Carla
