Emerson Moments

It has been a busy week here. Lots of quality baby time too. TJ and Emerson came to visit a couple of times. Good for me that Emerson came along, because TJ has NO time for his old Grandma any more. He is too busy playing. Plus, he runs the other way when I get the camera out!! So Rachel, Emerson and I visited on Thursday. I love this picture of Rachel and her daughter.

I finished the quilting on Emerson's quilt on Thursday. It is always bitter sweet to finish a loved quilt. Sooooo many hours of stitching, but the end result is SOOOOOO worth it! On Friday morning I made the binding and sewed it on the front of the quilt before the grandkids got here at 10:00 am.Rachel had an appointment so I was babysitting. TJ joined in for some "pre-school" and then they were off to play! Emerson and I had a nice visit.....She ooooh'ed and ahhhh'ed while I worked the hand sewing on the binding of her quilt.
Still working on that focusing, but getting better at it......She heard a noise behind her and turned her head to look. I was surprised at that!!
It was not long before she was yawning and it was time for a snooze.She loves to be "papoosed" in her blankets. Tomorrow she is coming to receive her finished quilt. It has even been washed and dried and the quilting is wonderful. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I will show it to you then.

God's Blessings to you.

She is absolutely precious in every way. Love the baby afghan snuggling her up, too.

:) very pretty
Your so pretty Bren. It is so hard to be both a mother of small ones and a grand mother too. Such a different passage.

Your granddaughter is very precious, my kids and I love to see pictures of her. My daughter asks to see the "baby page" :-)

You're right- that is a great picture of Rachel and her daughter.

Can't wait to see the finished quilt. It's bittersweet from this end, too, to know it will be completed. It's been fun getting to know it, and now we have to say goodbye!
