What a wonderful chat I had today...Katie called on their way home from Hampton's kindergarten orientation. They told me all about his classroom, his teacher, his tour of the school, who he was going to sit by and a dozen other things. He was so excited...made this Mamie's heart sing...I shared with Katie, forgetting that Hampton could hear what I was saying because they were in the car and she was on the Bluetooth, that our neighbor's son was in kindergarten when we moved here and now he's starting 8th grade...then I said "Oh our Hampton will be in 8th grade in no time." His sweet voice came through the Bluetooth..."It's OK Mamie, I'll be in kindergarten for 100 days and then I have to go to 1st grade...so it will really be a long time before I'm in 8th grade." OH my word, how did he grow up so fast?
I got love...Mamie

Kids. They say the cutest things! How precious.
Your quilt is so beautiful and always nice to have a sweet finish:)
A gorgeous quilt and yes, very happy. Hope those 100 days don't go too fast!
Cheery wave from Bev
I love it! Both the quilt and Hampton's conversation...isn't it great what they add to our lives?
It is a happy quilt for sure.
Yes, there are plenty of things I have said in front of my kids when they were little that I probably should have not said out loud. Just when you think they don't listen to you .....
Quilt turned out great!
Oh my. Kindergarten already. He'll be in college in a flash. Time goes by so fast.
Wow, your quilt turned out beautifully!!!
And your grandson sounds adorable! I love "kid speak"!
Isn't it just like Christmas to get a quilt back from the quilter. I really love the scappiness of your design, and would like to make one just like it!
How sweet is that...Hamptom definitely loves his Mamie. Love your pretty quilt.
The quilting on your happy quilt is wonderful! Looking forward to seeing all of the quilt you gave us a snippet of on the 16th! Oh, and God Bless Bluetooth!!
LOL - they are so much fun at that age! I love that he wants to share this adventure with you - everything is so exciting in kindergarten!
Celebrating your pretty finish - I adore nine patches and your colors are great - you're right, it's a happy quilt!
Oh that Hampton is such a dang cutie. However, he's growing way too fast. sigh! LOL
Love, love, love your quilt.
Oh no, kindergarten already! Well there's no stopping him now. Next week he'll be asking for the car keys and going to the prom. Goodness where did that time go.
Oh Carol, it is a Very Happy Quilt indeed. I truly love it! Thanks so much for sharing your Hampton story with us, LOL. Wow...100 day of kindergarten!!! They are so precious and yes, time goes too fast. Big Hugs...
There is nothing like a happy nine patch! The quilting is gorgeous!
The story and the quilt made me smile!
Aren't those little fellas the most adorable things---and they are all born smarter than back in my early days. :) 'Kids say the darnedest things' :D. Love love love your Mamie quilt. Would love to snuggle up in that one. :)
I finished quilting mine an hour ago. Tomorrow...I'm going to make the binding... I need to line up hand stitching for the week. Loved your tale. Glad you are writing these things down.
Whoops! Typo. How cute is that? I just love that story!
Oh, Carol!! This is a wonderfully happy quilt and your quilter did a super job too!! And Hampton sounds as smart as the dickens!!! Aren't the kids today amazing - I would never have been smart enough on my first day of kindy-garten to say those things - instead I cried when my Mom dropped me off!! LOL!!!
Oh, such a sweet story! Innocence is priceless, isn't it?
The quilt turned out very happy! Wonderful finish, Carol!
