Monday Making

I am going to be a grandma again...
times THREE!!

One daughter is expecting twins..
and my other grown daughter is expecting a baby.

The due dates are
Within ONE DAY of each other.
CRAZY *** crazy *** Grandma feelings over here!

The quilt above is, of course,  helping me with all the  feelings.
Happy feelings and anxious feelings.
How in the world will I be able to BE THERE when
one girl is in Texas and one girl is an hour away?
well...
One row of happy scraps at a time.
Sewing my feelings out!!! 
Isn't that what we quilters DO?

I began at the top of this quilt with stars..
Made some houses with kids and chickens inside.
You have to have a hen house...right?

Then some simple trees....cars, trucks and rvs.

Boats and fish.
And don't forget the helicopter up top!!

The slow going part of this quilt are all those tiny squares!
They are 1 1/2" unfinished.

I"m going one row at a time without a firm PLAN...
So I'm finding the squares run out faster than I expect!
Ha ha ha.

Since this one is the for the twins...
I'll have get to make another.
My UN-firm plan is to make another similar, but not exactly the same.
After all...
I don't think I have all of the same SCRAPS!

I am really trying to USE WHAT I HAVE
and not go shopping.

We'll see how that goes.

What are YOU making this week??
