Yes, Ian received a cordless drill for his 5th b-day. He has been begging DH for one for months. Some children are talented in sports, some in art - Ian is good with power tools! Ian would gladly spend all day with my dad, out in the barn, building "stuff". Ian is taking his drill to Tennessee this weekend to show to Papa. Not sure if he will allow Papa to use HIS drill, after all, Papa has two of his own!
Not much quilting going on around here. I put the borders on my cousin's baby quilt on Sunday. Got ready to piece the back and realized I was about a yard short! When I told this to my sister she asked if I had only bought a couple inches of fabric, after all this was only a baby quilt - how could I still need a whole 'nother yard of fabric. Smarty pants! It is a rather large baby quilt. Charlie (the daddy to be) was our very first cousin. I was 9 when he was born. He is on my dad's side of the family, where we remained the only three grandchildren until I was 29. Now I have another cousin who is 6 months older than my daughter! My mom's side of the family has us a little worried (as far as baby quilts go!) Each of my mom's three siblings had three children. That's a total of nine quilts that could happen in a relatively short time period. Actually, my mom is piecing the first quilt right now - for the baby due in September. We (mom and me) have made the executive decision that only #1 babies will receive a quilt, so they will hopefully be gender neutral (the quilts, not the babies). My sister's name has somehow ended up on the quilt label. Not sure what she has done to help the process. My mom says she will make Naomi take a few stitches on the binding! Naomi says she will make one great quilt in her lifetime. I think she is afraid of the addiction that me and my mom obviously have!
OK, I need to go take a shower. I am going to take Maddie to the walk in clinic. She has been complaining of a headache for two days.
