I have heard it said that if you want something done give the task to the busiest person you know.

That is debatable.

Here are six Blanket/Quilt set for Heaven Sent

Being a new grandmother has taken a lot of time and I have to say that I am enjoying every minute of it.

Unfortunately, my son and his wife are walking zombies, fussy fussy baby so I take him as much as I can (I know so selfless of me).

My husband and I made four day trip to Idaho to see this couple married.  Don't know how my husband did it but he drove all night on the way home.
Can't trust me to drive at night.

Had fun making these goody boxes.
I got the cut outs from the paper packet I purchased at JoAnn's.

Life has been super busy.  Some days I am so busy that I just stop.  I am learning to filter out what is non important and what is, that has helped a lot.

Hope all of you have a fabulous New Year!!!

Life can certainly be busy. I am amazed at how quickly days seem to pass.

Hi Barb, sounds like you have been busy, but enjoying it. Enjoy that grandchild. They grow uo so fast. Happy New Year!

I'm putting that on my future grandma list "hope for fussy baby" so I can be selfless too :) Busy is good but so is the stop for a bit, balance.

I have been so out of the loop with the holidays so I had to go back and check out the statement about a grandbaby. How exciting! Wow!!! That was a big baby! I am so glad that things went well and he was able to come home. I can understand why the parents are worn out. A fussy baby is so hard on the parents. Glad you are able to help out.

Enjoy the new year, Barb. It will be a fun and exciting one with a new little one in the family. Sewing will be on the back burner. ;-)

How exciting about your new grandie! Yay!!! Yes, life as we get older is learning how to simplify again like when we were kids. Your grandie will help you do that for sure.

How wonderful - congrats! They are lots of fun, even if they are fussy, aren't they? LOL
