Where I’ve been… again

It’s a wonder if anyone is still reading here since I haven’t posted very much lately.  I have a good excuse but that doesn’t matter if no one is around to hear it.  Here goes anyway.

For all of you who waited to see what I’ve been working on but couldn’t show because it was a surprise, it was a quilt for our brand new, first ever grandchild.  We have happily entered the blissful realm of grandparenthood.  Caleb Kikkawa Croswell was born June 15 and weighed in at 7 lbs 5 ozs.  He was 21″ long.  We were at the hospital to welcome him when he arrived and spent almost two whole weeks getting to love on him until it was time to return home.  Yes, the sad/happy part is that he was born in Hawaii and we live in Vermont.  What a precious time we had, spending time with his mama and papa for a few days until he decided to come and then to get to share him with them at home for a little while.

I can now post pictures of the whole quilt, too.  The front is black and white for the newborn stage and brown and blue for when his color vision develops.  It does actually have a label but I had to wait until Caleb was born so it could have all the pertinent information on it.

    Well, Hello!!! Welcome back.:) How well I remember leaving our little Ellie after our first visit with tears streaming down my cheeks because I knew how much she would change the next day, let alone how much before I would see her again. It’s tough being the “far away” Grandma, but somehow it still works. I can’t wait to see more pictures and hear more about him when we see you next month!!! Glad you’re home safe and sound, Grammy!

    He is so beautiful….love those eyes. And how smart you are to make something just for his black and white world. I so remember our first grandson. He is now 22 !!!! (how did THAT happen). But long distance grandparenting still is great….they do remember us ! We were able to fly out about 4 times a year so it kept me happy. Congratulations grandma….your life has changed.
