OH BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and some quilting!!!

Oh boy, oh boy.....Baby Polk Dot is going to have a little brother!! We are so, so, so, so excited and can hardly wait till January to meet the new little guy. I need to get busy with some new baby quilts!

I have forgotten how wonderful one year olds are. Baby Polka Dot is so much fun and such a little character. He is such great entertainment for grandma and grandpa!! Here's a sweet photo of him and his auntie when she was visiting last week.
.
I have had a productive few days. Mr. Polka Dot was off fishing in them there hills, so I really dug in and got some things done. Finished my notions caddy.........





.....worked some more on a top secret Xmas project........then
I almost finished an Xmas quilt for a friend. I just need to add the outer borders and it will be off to be quilted. The colors are way out of my comfort zone, but oh so perfect for my special friend. Then I just had to make this sweet Turkey wall hanging. His button eyes will be added after the quilting....Sandy Gervais strikes again!!!! I just can't resist her patterns !!
This week we have a big adventure ahead of us...a getaway to Colorado, and you know some quilt shops will be included in this grand adventure and golfing for Mr. P. I have some handwork all set to go and another Janet Evanovich novel. Looking forward to some beautiful scenery along the way!!!! Happy week to everyone!

Cheryl,
I just found your blog. Are you married to a man whose name starts with J and who just left this past year as a city manager? (Trying not to reveal where in case you don't want it out). If so, hello, I work in the same city and live up in the mountains.

Congratulations! I'm so excited I stumbled on your blog again after changing jobs earlier this year. I first started reading back when baby polka dot was born and now he's having a baby brother! So cool. Congrats to you all. Now I have to go back and read the past 6-8 months of what I've missed. Take care! Jenn
