New Grandmas, New Quilters

 I just turned 62 — I have five grown children, and the last will be leaving our home town later this month. I have twelve grandchildren — all smart and progressing nicely. The oldest and the two youngest will leave also with their mother. I am happy for them, but sad for me. But already, my four year old grandson will have the opportunity to take French Immersion when he goes to kindergarten in the fall — an opportunity he could not receive in our small town. And I believe the opportunity that will keep me from being sad, is that I have a goal to make quilts for each of my grandchildren (six quilts which are already done). And then I will proceed with one for each of my children and their spouses. And finish three I have started for my guests rooms and my living room. If there are any grandmas out there that have never quilted, but would like to, do it — it is very rewarding.
