Who doesn’t love a baby? They are so much fun to hold, snuggle, sniff, kiss, hug, cuddle…
I’ve had the pleasure to cuddle and love on four Mosey babies so far:
But on Tuesday around noon, we are getting another Mosey baby to add to the mix – another adorable grandson! We’re so excited, so pardon me if I don’t post as frequently this week – or if I post a whole lot more with baby pictures. Sometimes you just can’t help yourself, you know!
Visit the Blogger’s Quilt Festival and see this year’s quilts!
In the four-block style, a two-color quilt…
It’s called “Feathered Cheddar” by Caron Mosey

I used to keep track of quilts I liked by saving a picture of them in a folder on my computer. The problem with that was that I could save the photo, but not information ABOUT the photo. Things like who made the quilt, where it was taken, etc. I’ve changed how I do things now. Using Pinterest, I still save pictures of quilts I see that I fall in love with, but I can now save a link to where I originally saw the quilt, the name of the quiltmaker, or the quilt show, or the fabric line, etc. Have you tried Pinterest.com?
To use Pinterest you need an invitation. Let me know if you’d like one!

I'm noticing the color gray (grey) everywhere I look lately. Last night I went to dinner at the White Horse Inn in Metamora, Michigan with my friends Lisa and Marlee. The White Horse Inn, established in 1850, is the oldest restaurant in Michigan. I walked into the bathroom and smiled immediately. Had this been fabric on the walls, I probably would have peeled it off and stuffed it in my purse. Beautiful gray striped wallpaper and floral border. Yummy! How many people do you know who take pictures of restroom walls?
I think I have a sickness…
My adorable granddaughter is in love with the character Pippi Longstocking and wanted to dress up like her for Halloween this year. Grammy to the rescue!
I took a regular jumper pattern in a size 4, sewed it as directed, then added the necessary patches (in batik prints) to make it look like Pippi’s. Yesterday I gave it to Samantha and it fit like a charm. She will add the required pigtails and mismatched socks to complete the look. You can’t see it, but there are more patches on the back and sides.
A happy little girl, looking forward to Halloween!
Beginning at age 50, both men and women should be screened for cancer and polyps, and a colonoscopy is suggested every 10 years. Yesterday was my day, and I got it out of the way early. I left home at 7:30 AM and arrived at the center shortly after 8 AM. By 10:00 AM I was sitting in my leather chair at home hand quilting my spools quilt! It was easy, quite quick and painless. I got a little IV poke in my hand, and was out almost immediately. Other than the little IV poke, I felt nothing. Absolutely nothing. The day before the colonoscopy is the most dreaded day of all, as much of the time is spent in the bathroom preparing. But I looked at it as a way to get some reading done, and that I did!
Stormie, my cat, was delighted to have me home most of the day. She laid on my lap or on the top of my chair and watched me quilt for most of the day. I got a lot accomplished! As I couldn't drive for 24 hours, there was nowhere to go, so (SHUCKS) I couldn't go in to work. Might as well relax with some stitching, right?
So if you need a day off and want to get a lot accomplished, have some peace of mind and piecing to do, a colonoscopy is the way to go! Tell them that Caron sent you. Maybe they'll give you a discount.
P.S. I have a clean bill of health!
