Some months are busier  than others but September tops the list. With our first granddaughter being born and a quilt show Mary was responsible for our agenda was full.

If you are a regular reader you know our granddaughter arrived healthy and safe September 14th. Kate was 9.1 lbs at birth and not to be outdone by her brother she decided to arrive at home; no time for the hospital, call the midwife and get ready for this baby.

All went well and we are delighted to have a new grandchild to spoil.

This past weekend was the quilt show and my sisters came to help Mary and the club get the displays set up.

Friday morning we were busy unloading the trailer and deciding where everything should go.

The ladies were well organized and the job went very smoothly.

The show was a huge success with everyone giving positive feedback on all the displays.

Once we had the frames up it was time for me to leave so I never got pictures of the actual show. I'll post some quilt pictures later if Mary can send me some.

Friday night Casey and Sean arrived and Saturday Jamie and Leanne pulled in so it was the best weekend we've had in a long time. We love to see the kids and my sisters and have some time together, which doesn't happen often enough. Of course the delicious meals everyone prepared were greatly appreciated especially by Mary as she didn't have to cook after a busy day at the show.

I'll post more pictures of the weekend tomorrow.

  1. I'm so glad you had a great weekend with your family. There is nothing better than being surrounded with family. Looks like they had fun on the water too. I am anxious to seethe quilt show pictures.
