Yes, there is going to be a BABY in our home - Emma Grace, our first grandchild. Our daughter Sarah is expecting, and while her first choice was to place the baby for adoption, the birth father will not relinquish his rights, which is his choice. So Sarah will be a mother, and our first grandchild is on her way to us! Some dear friends gave our daughter a shower last Saturday here at our home, and oh my, how beautiful! We had a brunch of quiche, blueberry buckle, hashbrown casserole, fruit, and juices. Here are a few photos:

A very sweet heirloom made by my cherished friend Pam:
Also a shower gift favorite- Sandy's crocheted baby booties!
A little Bling:
And of course I had to make her a 'tag quilt':
Emma will be here in about a month. So much to do before then........ But this weekend Sarah and I are off to a quilting retreat in the middle of Idaho - will post about that next time. I am truly a blessed individual and looking forward to being a 'grandma'!
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
