A GrandParent Blessing

 One of the blessings of being within driving distance (albeit on the fringe of driving distance!) we can make a last minute decision to travel to be witnesses to the baptism of our grand daughter!
 If you remember, a few years ago our grandson was baptized in Lake Altoona but it is being drained this year and their church had to make other arrangements!  It was wonderful to be a part of this important milestone.
 Afterwards, we all went out to dinner!
 On Saturday, we ladies had a yarn shop hop and this is what we bought!
 I finished the sweater set on the trip up and was able to gift it while we were there!
Another project we accomplished over the weekend was hand sewing the binding to the quilt Marsel made for Abigail!  Isn't it just perfect!

  3. Big huge congratulations to her for getting baptised! I still remember mine and I hope her water was warmer than mine was. Brrrr!

    That bed looks like ti was made for a princess. I am totally in love with the whole thing from the quilt to the cover to the colors - just everything. May she have many nights of sweet dreams in it. With all the love shown in its creation, they are bound to come.
