Mason's Second Birthday and a fabric picture

Here's the Birthday Boy! Not yet 2 until next Saturday, but I think Daddy has to do his weekend of Guards that day. You can see here that the party was lots of fun. Lots of toys and tables out in the yard, lots of kids and their parents.

This is the Birthday Boy's Dad and 22 year old Big Brother. I just can't believe I have a grandson that old. How did he get that old, when I'm still so young?

Here he is again...handsome, huh?

 And below is the youngest granddaughter.  She's 7 months. Very tactile...loved the lace top I wore. Guess I need to make something lace for her to play with.
You can be so demure when Grandpa is taking the picture, but....

she loses it when Daddy comes to eat cheeks!

Chewing my purse. Easy to get pictures of her, but the little brother was on the move the whole time!

Now for the fabric.  You might think that it' s not quite right to show  this after such a lovely party... well the fabric was part of the party. While shopping with his Mom, the Birthday Boy picked out this chunk of fabric for his Granny. Mom mentioned that the fabric is what I used to make quilts, and  he decided he should "pick" some for me. He took almost a half hour to choose this grouping. 5 Fat quarters for me.... I can't tell you how wonderful it makes me feel. I think he needs a little drag around quilt out of his choices... What do you think?
So that's my report for Saturday. 
Have a lovely Sunday tomorrow.


  1. What a great day with grandchildren, children and lots of people! Your grandson has wonderful taste in fabrics. Think I could hire him next time I need fabrics for a quilt? Maybe I should check out and see if my 4-yr-old granddaughter can pick fabrics!

  2. Everything goes with fabric! He made some great choices, so yes, I think a new quilt is a great idea! What pattern will you use?

  3. What a delightful post, Terri! I enjoyed every word and picture. You have a beautiful family : )
    Wonderful collection of fabric chosen by Birthday Boy! He did GOOD!
    Read in the news about the earthquake in southern California. Hope you had no damage.

  4. Looks like a great day!!! Got to love those grands!!!

  5. I totally hear you on the how did I get a kid that old thing. My nephew turned 27 yesterday and I’m still trying to work out how that happened. I remember when he was a kid who didn’t sit still for a minute.
    Happy Birthday to you Mason!

    I think you may have a quilt designer in the making there Terri. A quilt is definitely in order!

  6. What cuties (both the grands, and the fabrics). See, you're teaching them well, at an early age.

  7. Oh, I'm rather impressed with his choices! Maybe you have witnessed a new artist marking his first steps up to glory! The quilt will be special!

  8. your granddaughter is adorable.

  9. What a nice family and nice chosen fabric!
