I'm working on my ornament and I'll post a picture of it after my recipient receives it. Wouldn't want to spoil any surprises.

I finished my second quilt. I presented it to Sullivan for his first birthday, which will be December 15th. Here's a picture of Sullivan on his new quilt.

Tracy and Tyson moved to the Nashville area 5 years ago just after they were married. Tracy has told me many time that she wasn't happy about the move, but knew God had a reason. She didn't know His reason but, maybe someday would find out. Well, the top specialist (one of only three in the country) just happened to be at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, a mere 20 minutes from their home. Now we know at least one reason God brought them to Nashville.
A couple months ago, Dr. Joos called Tracy. She was worried because Dr. Joos has never herself called Tracy. Tracy was relieved when Dr. Joos asked if she would be willing to be interviewed for an article in the Vanderbilt newspaper as a sucess story.

Not only have I finished my first quilt, I've had a blast with Aunt Sue! So much fun, that now I'm taking guitar lessons from Aunt Sue (don't know how well I'll do with that; I'm not very musically inclined). She is a multi-talented girl!
Here's a picture of my first quilt. I'm working on my second quilt now. I was making this quilt for Sullivan but decided that it wasn't good enough for him. I'll post a picture of the new quilt photographed with Sullivan. I'll be seeing them soon . . . YEA.

I was happy to be able to visit with Tracy's long time friends during her visit too. Nique and Kevin and their babe, Rosie; Natalie and Dries and their 4 adorable children came for a pool party/bbq. Heather and Alfonso and their sweet little ones, Spencer and Mia came for an overnighter; and Katie Knipp and her beau, Jeremy came for dinner. I really miss my girls' friends. It was so good to spend time with them again.
HE DID FINALLY FIT IN THE CARRY ON SO IT WASN'T NECESSARY TO CHECK LUGGAGE
Paige went home with Tracy for a Tennessee visit and was joined a couple days later by Thomas. They'll be home later this week. I so look forward to the time when I have both my girlies home to stay.
Not to mention that I've yet to set up my sewing room. It's awaiting a fresh coat of paint to cover up the planes, trains and automobiles that were painted on the walls for the prior occupant. Other than that, we're settled in to our new home. We just need to paint the entire inside of the house still (except the kitchen).
I do have several bears available still. I'll post them on my website, so take a look at http://www.swanvalleybears.com

Mom, my sister and me in 1955 (I'm the one with the all-day lollipop)For everyone who is a mother, and everyone who has a mother (which I think is about everyone), Happy Mother's Day. I'm fortunate to live close to my mom and one of my two daughters. I spent the afternoon having dinner at a restaurant in Sacramento with mom and dad, the hubster, my Paigie and her beau. Mom received, from me, a digital picture frame which I pre-loaded with old and new family photos. I'm pretty sure she was thrilled with it. Miss Paigie gifted mom and me with gift bags full of delightful smelling stuffs for our bodies. Yummy shower gels, lotions, oils and all that kind of good stuff. Tracy and Tyson (daughter and her hubster in Tennessee) had their adorable baby son, Sullivan dedicated in church Mother's Day morning. I can't wait to see the video, the next best thing to being there.
The picture above is my mom, sister and me in 1955. I'm the little one with the all-day-sucker. Hmmm, no wonder I had so many fillings. I have a younger brother but he was born after my grandfather, the photographer, disassembled his darkroom. So, not so many pictures of him.
