I've Been A.W.O.L.

But I have excuses, a million of 'em.

The first part of the year is busy for me with quilt guild activities. I'm the newsletter publisher, so each year I have to "break-in" the new committee members who write reports for me to publish. I also help the membership gals by keeping the database and prepping the printed roster for them and that is another first-of-the-year activity as well. With all that and traveling, I've been a busy gal who isn't sewing much.

My first finish for February can now be revealed, my grandson Benjamin's annual birthday quiltlet. I decided to do these quilts for his birth and annually until he is five, so this is the next-to-last. We visited them last week and Kate had the quilts all hung on the special hanger I bought last year and they were very cute if I do say so myself. I present this years' addition, a celebration of the fact that my boy started preschool last month and is loving it. Kate reports that he loves the peek-a-boo door on the quilt this year, so maybe I can think of something 3-D for next year.

It is hard for me to believe that this little guy is four years old already! Kate, Benjamin and I had a wonderful time making Valentines for his classmates while Alex was napping.

Mrs. Goodneedle is right--life is good!
