Proud Grandma

Thursday we got the long awaited call from Parla and Dave saying little Brighton Noel was born.  I am a grandma now!  Sunday I flew up here to Canada to see this precious little one.

Taking our afternoon nap together.

Brighton is all strapped in and bundled up for her first car ride.

One day this past week I hosted a brunch for the senior ladies from our church along with some young gals to bring them.

Patchwork Plus's Christmas meal.

The rest of the crew.

Ken surprised Phyllis with a quilt he pieced and quilted for Christmas.  When you come to Patchwork Plus and want some advice on how to make a quilt.  Ask this experienced quilter.

Rebecca pulled out her quilt again and worked on it a few days over Christmas break.

Pinning and sewing with her new Bernina.

Rebecca prepared and served Sandford and Sheila's Christmas banquet for their businesses--35 people.  

Autumn getting a surprise fun box together for her friends in college.  She is really the life of the party.

This past week while I was at Mother's, she worked on a quilt for sewing circle.

C&T Blog is featuring my new book "Simply Triangles" on their blog and is giving away a book.  Check it out and see if you can win a free copy.

There will be more pics later of the proud Mom and Dad :) for now, here is the precious little one...all bright eyed and bushy-tailed.

Today we go to the hospital to get baby pricked for some testing;  then we are going to a fabric store to pick out fabrics for a baby quilt.  Parla and I designed the quilt yesterday and we will make it while I am here.


  1. Barbara, What an exciting time! I'm so glad you are able to spend time with Parlas & sweet little B! Enjoy! :)

  2. You must add Grandmother to your resume up top. Beautiful Grandbaby.

  3. Barbara how blessed and sweet little Brighton is. Can it be that my baby sister is already a Grandma! It wasn't all that long ago when "Here comes Barbara and Terry pushing the baby carrriage" and now its Parlas turn.
    Love, Rebecca's quilt. It's amazing!

  4. Congratulations Grandma!! Exciting times and I love her name.

  5. Congratulations, Barbara! Enjoyed your post!

  6. Now aren't you just in your glory! Cuddle and kiss that little cutie for me. I'll be waiting to see the finished baby quilt. It's always good to see what your gals are up to!

  7. Congratulations, Grandma! Cannot wait to see the wonderful quilt you'll make for your sweet little girl....I love her name!
