Big day yesterday....

Last night I searched for fabrics for binding for the Trip Around the World that I just quilted.  I didn't have very many fabrics that go with these mid 1990s fabrics in the quilt.



Yesterday was a long day, trip into Chicago, 3 hours at the eye dr., and trip back home.  The tumor in my eye has shrunk a little more so I was happy and so was the dr.  On the way home we stopped to eat lunch (2:30 p.m.) and my son called to tell me my granddaughter was in labor with her first baby (my first great grandbaby).  Around 11 p.m. after a few complications a little boy was born.  I don't know many details yet (I type this around midnight and set it to post at 5 a.m.).

Wonderful news Wanda, first your eye, then the GG Baby, I'm sure you already have a new quilting project planned for the latest in your family. So glad all was well after a lengthy time and problems. These days we are all so relieved when a healthy baby and Mum are there at the end of the day. Greetings to all, and congrats from NZ, Jean.

Wonderful, wonderful news!! Don't worry about replying to me-you have enough to do. So very glad about the shrinking tumor and a greatgrandbaby is just icing on the cake!

Congrats on the new grandbaby and on your eye tumor going down a bit. For the binding, I would forget 90's fabric and think about using an unexpected fabric. I'm thinking a black and white stripe or something else would jazz up the 90's look in an unexpected way.
