Two Versions of the Same Thing

Those little twin boys of ours are growing! Yesterday my granddaughter, Becky, was able to bring them home from the hospital weighing 5 lbs 10 oz, and 6 lbs 2 oz. I think that is pretty darn good! She would be 38 weeks along in her pregnancy, but instead has babies that are 2-1/2 weeks old. Becky is happy about that! They are nursing well and getting lots of love from both Mom and Dad! I love that she labels the pictures. Years from now they won't have to guess!
 This morning we got to Skype together and I was able to do everything but hold them. I watched them wiggle and coo and blink their little eyes and stick out their baby tongues. Adorable! I could almost believe I smelled that sweet baby smell, but that really would be pushing it. I will just have to be content with instant photographs and instant visibility through the computer.

Mary Flynn at Quilt Hollow emailed me this morning and said "Isn't this your quilt?"  She sent me a link to Shakerwood Quilts, and what do you know, Cathi had photos from a quilt show and someone had entered a quilt made from my Saddle Tramp pattern that was in McCall's Quick Quilts last year. I was very pleased to see it made up by someone other than myself, and she did a lovely job of it too. It is blue and done in plaids. Looks great! Thanks for sharing that Cathi! Now we can all see two versions of the same thing, kind of like the twins! 

I plan to have that pattern available soon as I get a good photo of it.  You can see my version of it on my website homepage

I always love to see quilts made from my designs, so don't hesitate to share them with me!

Oh, the babies are so darling. How wonderful about your quilt being in a show and isn't it wonderful to see your pattern made by somebody who isn't you!! That is very exciting.

Ah, how sweet. Yes, it is definitely nice that she labels the pictures for just the reason that you said. Technology is good for some things afterall!

what an honor to you to see your quilt all made up and in a quilt show! The babies are absolutely adorable. It's amazing how much we can share these moments with those we love due to technology. When my SIL gets deployed I'll have to check into Skype so I can keep up on my grandbabies bz I'm certainly going to miss them and my daughter plans on living on base near wherever he is if possible.

What perfectly adorable little boys, Marcie! I am so happy you can share these precious moments with them via technology. May not be the same as actually holding them, but darn close!
With a DD moving to Scotland in 2 weeks, I see this kind of grandmother-hood in my future as well.
