I'm enjoying my grand babies here in Edinburgh, Scotland. The weather has been pretty good for this area - Highs in the 60's and low 70's and not much rain.

He has his Daddy's dimples :) I leave on Monday for a 2 1/2 week visit. Can't wait to get my hands on this little guy, and his big sister. So blessed! I'm in love...... Stay tuned because there will be some quilting blog posts coming while I am in Scotland.
