Bad blogger!!

Yeah I know, I'm a really bad blogger! No excuses.

The 14th of August, I picked up my daughter in Arizona and we drove out to Ft. Benning, Georgia for the birth of my first great granddaughter, Lydia Grace Allen, born Aug 13th at 2:40 am. We got there on Sunday afternoon right after my granddaughter, Heather, came home from the hospital.
On Friday, I got to pin Mari's captains bars on her at a ceremony at the hospital. I can't tell you how proud I am of her and everything she has accomplished in her life.
We stayed for a week then went up to Chattanooga to a thread warehouse I love. I found them on ebay and have bought tons of threads and other stuff from them.
Then a quick stop in Nashville at a friends house. I say quick because we were really anxious to get back on the road to home. We made it back to my daughter's on Tuesday and I spent the
night there then headed home Wednesday morning.
We have concluded that we will NEVER drive it again. We will fly next time.

This morning I finally finished the quilting on my Drunkard's Path quilt. I really love how it turned out. Now for the dreaded binding. Have I ever mentioned that I really hate doing bindings? Well I do.
