A Visit from Madison!

I made it back again. I thought I would share our Easter with you. We usually have a  whole family gathering for Easter, but everything was so crazy this year, we decided to just chill instead. Kevin and I grilled burgers and hot dogs. They sure were good. That afternoon, Isaiah and Madison came out. Isaiah helped his dad work on the brakes of our truck while I played with Madison. She has grown so much since Christmas. She sits up now and jabbers away. She has two bottom teeth. She loves her daddy. In fact, she doesn't really want him out of her sight. LOL I know the feeling is mutual. Isaiah takes such good care of his daughter.

Look at those teeth shining through.

Isaiah looking at his daughter. Sometimes it is hard for me to believe that our children are all grown up with children of their own. Time really does fly by when your family is young.

We had a wonderful visit with Isaiah and Madison. Even though our Easter wasn't like it usually is, it was still good. (grin)

I tried my hand at tube piecing. Mine didn't quite come out like it was supposed to, but I made it work. I love this black fabric. I have used it in several projects, but will soon be out of it. I made this table runner from the tube piecing. I quilted this while I was in Kansas City. Now it just needs a binding and to be washed. 

Here is a closeup of one of the center blocks.

Of course, you know I have to share the back. This one really looks neat on the back, if I do say so myself. (grin)
I really think I am about ready to get back to quilting. I have done nothing since being home. I just needed some time to kick back and relax. Of course, I couldn't do that till I had the house back in order. LOL I have even sat in front of the tv for the past few evenings with absolutely nothing in my hands to work on. That is very unusual for me. I am starting to feel the call of my fabric, though. 

Speaking of call....I talked to Noah on the phone the other day. He said, 'Grandma, when are you going to come back home?' How sweet is that?  He thinks I belong at their home now. (grin) I told him I would come visit soon. That seemed to satisfy him, so then he started rambling on about Sponge Bob. LOL Izzie got on the phone too, then had a fit when her mama tried to get it away from her. I do miss them. 

Well, I need to get some things done around here. Thanks for visiting. Have a great day.

That little Madison is cute as a button. I'd never get anything done with her around *grin* Your table runner is beautiful. I've sewn for over 50 years but just can't do a good job on the intricate quilt designs. I stick to the 4 inch squares. Makes for some boring quilts but they're sure warm. LOL

Winona, little Miss M is gorgeous! & so happy! Don't the wee ones just melt your heart ... love the telecon Noah ... ours think the same thing, but then I always tell them 'our home' is everyone's home ...

Beautiful quilting. Glad you are back.
Have a wonderful day.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon
