Another Block

I am committed to this project.  Only 4 more to go.  Here is block number 12:

And what did I do this past weekend? Well….granddaughter #1, Haley (11 years old), participated in her first music competition. She first played accompanied by her other grandfather, Jim; then played a duet with her best friend, Abby; then proudly displayed their blue ribbons. It was so fun to watch her play. They all did a super job. I am so happy she loves music.

And grandson #2, Max (8) (Haley’s brother), bore the concert bravely. He has such sparkly eyes!

And then I ran home, had some lunch, and quickly made it to granddaughter #2, Sophia’s (10), dress rehersal for her dance competition.   She takes ballet, jazz, etc. and is on the dance team.   She is on the far right.   This will be her first competition.   I think I had more fun than she did.

I think this coming week and weekend will be a quiet one.   Perhaps I can finish a couple more blocks.   And maybe even do some stitching on my “Cedar Hill” Rabbit that I began last year for Easter and never finished.   I honestly hope it is finished for this Easter!

Amities, Averyclaire

    I am thinking…we were just about to miss that, not sharing your happiness! Your grandchildren are gifted and are a gift themselves. They are blessed to be artists. Thank you for the pics.
    Have plenty of ather weekends like this, and some others dedicated to quilting to recover (lol).

    What a beautiful block! And such talented granddaughters too! Tell your grandson he’s not alone — my DS had to sit through many a concert and ballet recital in his time for his sister. lol! At least he only had to sit through a concert. 😀 I hope he goes equipped with a gameboy or something. lol!

    That’s a gorgeous block and the workmanship is perfect!

    What a joy to have those grandchildren. The grandfather/granddaughter photos are priceless! And as an ex-jazz and tap dancer, I really appreciate and adore that gorgeous dance photo.

    Your appliqued blocks are gorgeous (as is everything you make), and all your grandkids are so cute! Sophia looks adorable in her dance outfit.

    What a pretty block!! Love the photos of your granddaughter playing her clarinet–that sure brought back memories for me as I was a clarinet player when I was young. How nice that her grandfather could accompany her 🙂
