Blue for Boy Pink for Girl
 Yes it seems an old fashioned idea these days but hey with these cute fabrics not terribly old fashioned!
Used some coupons at Joann's Fabrics on these flannel bundles from Land of Whimzie. I  used my first flannel bundle for Olivia a flannel quilt. Washes up wonderfully so soft. No shrinkage.As matter of fact there is a giveaway going on here for these two bundles! No connection to me just happen to see it. Ends Nov 27th.
 I have managed to get my squares all cut out.  I also bought cute polka dot flannel fabric for the backings.
Beginning with the cute boy one. So all laid out as I want. Now to try to sew up with out mixing them up!!
These are for our first set of twins on my side of family! My great great nephew and niece! My older brother is their Great Gramps! They were born by Cesarian last Wednesday. Ryder at 6.15 pounds and Rylee at 6.9 pounds! Cute as they can be! They are a long ways from us here but we get to share all the joy on Facebook and through emails.
So warm flannel quilts and some burp cloths will soon be on the way from GG Auntie!

Been way laid by yet another head cold and infection!! So sick of this mess already!!
Went to dr for one thing and ended up with another horrid cold! Just had one last month too!
Beginning to think the masks and gloves are not a bad idea! ;-)

Have a country ham on cooking for Thanksgiving at son's home. Hope I am better by then! Do not want to make baby Olivia sick again too!   Woe is me....;-(

We have gone from freezing temps back up to 70's today! Roller coaster weather. Least the sun is trying to shine. May sit on porch a bit to soak up some Vit D!

Sadly we had to have our plumber come work on well pump today. Darn$$
Oh well I am sure he considered the job a $ blessing and happy we could cover it!
Love Fall and love November! It is my birthday month. ;-)
I have had a wonderful birthday. Spent the day with sweet gal pals in Smithfield,Va.
We went to some shops and out for lunch. We had a ball!

Really the celebrating covered a week or so! I have no problems with that! ;-)

This sweet lil gal blowing bubbles took me out for breakfast Sunday morning!
We had a grand time enjoying her sweet company. Olivia is such a good baby.
Growing so fast. Want her to slow up!
 DH cooked my fav birthday meal of local oysters fried with coleslaw and hush-puppies.
 We by passed the french fries this time! Was very yummy indeed!
Yes the dear man once again baked my fav cake..Boston Cream Pie! Lordy is it some kinda good.

Received some wonderful gifts I will enjoy. My fav and best gift of all was time spent with those I hold dear, my family and friends. Sweet memories I will keep in my heart forever!
Time to put the Halloween away and pull out Tom Turkey! We are so near our USA Thanksgiving Day!
We enjoy spending time with our family on Thanksgiving.  Being so very grateful for those dear faces around us and our many blessings.
