I'm So Excited I Could Pop!

I woke up this morning and had a post ready to go in my mind...the title was "I've Been Cleaning Again"...and then the phone rang...I knew it would be Josh, he always calls on Saturday morning to chat. First he told me that they would be coming to our house for Thanksgiving...we had talked about it when I was there last month and they were pretty sure that they were not going to be able to come, because he didn't think his work schedule would work out...but he found out that he will have vacation that he'll have to take, so they'll be coming...YIPPEE! Thanksgiving and Hampton's second birthday is also that week, so we'll get to have a party. Then as I was jumping up and down and telling him that he had made my day, he asked what I was doing in April...well, silly me, I said I'd check my calendar but I didn't think that there was anything there yet...he was laughing like crazy...went on to have to tell me that I would be needed there to watch Hampton while they are at the hospital...YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!! Yes, I'm going to be a grandma again. I am floating on a cloud. You've heard me say it before, LIFE IS TRULY GOOD!

Now, here's what I was going to post this morning before all the excitement...I was cleaning in the sewing room again and came upon some older, out of print fabrics that would love to go to someone else's house, where they'll go into a quilt.
As always, I'll just charge you whatever the shipping will be...just send me an e-mail.... goodhomequiltco@aol.com

I want to share the wonderful gifties that I got from my swap group...I showed my wonderful angel from Darlene several posts back...there was a delay in posting the others until everyone got their packages. This darling little quilt came from Judy...she used the leftovers from our swap fabrics...

Look at this tote bag from Wendy...

And Sharon made us all these little bags... I have my stitchery tools in mine...it has a zipper so I never have to worry about anything falling out...I'll never lose another pair of scissors.

Thank you so much girls...this was an absolutely wonderful swap and I can't wait to get my quilt together. It's going to be beautiful and full of lots of good memories.

Blogger's decided it doesn't want anymore pictures for now...so I'm going to say "Have a great evening!"

As soon as I read the title of your post I was sure I knew what you were going to say - and I was right! The only thing better than being a grandma is being a grandma twice and three times over. Congratulations to all of you - how truly marvelous!

Wish I had gotten to your blog before the fabric was sold! What a good idea--I might try that too--selling fabric that I have left from big projects. I love your blog. My blog is a dog blog but I'm a quilter so appreciate your photos so much!
