{Post 1,679} Mini, Mini, and Mini

This is a mini of my SIL:

This is a mini of my son (behind her, while we were doing FaceTime):

And this is a mini quilt I am making from the leftover HSTs from a fall quilt I am making.

The first picture is one finished block. I realize it is not perfect. As small as the pieces are, it is close enough for me.  Each HST is 1-5/16” before piecing. The block will finish at 6-3/4” square. I am making 3 blocks for a little table runner to use up my orange HSTs.  I am out of things to sew here (except for a pair of my SIL’s work uniform pants that will be done later tonight.)

{Post 1,678} Baby & Quilt

My daughter and SIL are adjusting to having the baby soooo well. Here he is now...

He is so precious!!  Twelve days old. Time flies.

In other news, I am getting a lot finished on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt. I hesitate to sew on the bottom row of half blocks to finish it up. I will have to get it home and lay it on my bed to see if I want it larger first. I think I’ll need at least another row of blossoms for a pillow tuck.

But I just took this picture.

{Post 1,677} Happy Birthday, Mom!!

I had the rare opportunity to spend my mother’s birthday with her. She has always been such a good mom and has given everything she has to raising my sister and I.  We had a little get together with me, my parents, my sister, and several of her children. Had a good lunch and played lots of games. Then one of her sons asked if he could stay overnight with me and my parents. Extra time for fun!!

Here is my mom, then me and my nephew.
