Strange things

The cold is losing its grip on me, guess the cold medications are working... So this weekend we will be taking down the outdoor decorations... Just didn't have it in me last weekend to tackle that chore...

Now I bet you are wondering why the title strange things... I will explain...
 It was New Years Day and I was in the kitchen making our dinner of pork, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes... As I was making our dinner I couldn't help but remember how many times I stood beside my Nanny or my Mother as they prepared this New Year's Day traditional meal.  I was remembering the love and laughter in their kitchens as we peeled potatoes and remembered the events of that year and what we looked forward to in the new year... I miss those ladies so much, all the ladies I learned from are now gone... As I was remembering those wonderful times and peeling potatoes I stopped and had to do a double take, was this a message from those wonderful ladies, letting me know that while they were no longer with me their love was....

This is what I found....
Thanks Mom, Nanny, Nan, Grammy, Aunt Kit and Aunt Sis... I love you too...



Congratulations are in order for my niece
 who became a mother yesterday to a 7 lb 8 oz baby girl. You saw the frog and dragonfly quilt that I made for her and it was mailed yesterday.   I knew I should have waited to send that box, I just had a feeling she was going to have the baby early. Today I will mail out the Baby Name blanket that I made last night...  I was in such a hurry to get it in the mail that I packed it and got it ready to mail and then realized that I hadn't take any pictures of it.. Sorry, maybe when she gets it she will send me a photo of the little one with her blanket..

Congratulations, Auntie! I am sure she will love the quilt. I agree that the heart potato was meant especially for you. Happy new year!
