HQAL March Update 1 Day late

I am back from my long weekend trip to the baby shower for my granddaughter Heather. My daughter Fawn, living in Fairbanks, Alaska, flew in to me (Washington) and together we made the trip down to Oregon. Fawn was a shower surprise! And a wonderful surprise it was. From her sister Marion to Heather and to grandson Joe ~ shock, surprise, happiness all overflowed and made the weekend extra special.

I know I said I’d pass on this posting but I think one day late is just fine.

      We tried to get my daughter in OK out with us but the timing was wrong to pull that off. Fun weekend and visit.

    This was totally worth waiting an extra day for! It sounds like a wonderful gathering, with all the family together. And the quilt turned out so well–front and back are adorable!
