VT Nurses Strike

Smack dab in the middle of a two day Nurses Strike at the Medical Center in Vermont, Youngest and  Daughter*in*Law had to spend 24 hours at the hospital so that her pregnancy could be monitored.  All is well, and the baby is fine.  But I have to tell you a wonderful thing.  Daughter*in*Law wore a red dress to be in solidarity with the striking nurses, and brought along a Bernie action figure, since he has been strongly backing the nurses!  πŸ“ΏπŸ’ͺ

Grandbaby Quilt

This is the quilt I am making for my grand baby due next month.  [Double click on the photo to see it larger.]  I got the top and backing all pieced in time for the Baby Sprinkle (smaller than a Shower) on Saturday.  Tonight I got the batting into the quilt (always an experience!).  Now to quilt as fast as I can, as this baby is likely to come early...!  

There are three sailboats as this is their third baby.  The royal blue boat is older brother's favourite colour, and is shown leading the way.  The purple boat with pink highlights is older sister's favourite colors, and is shown bringing up the rear.  Between them safely sails the green boat, for the new baby (gender will be learned at birth).  There is a star in one corner for the theme "All I need is a tall ship and a star to steer her by."  There are also three types of wind devices, depicted in the other three corners (propeller, old fashioned windmill, new brand of windmill).  There are three hot air balloons (the glory of Summer for a Summer baby).  I added shines around the sun when the baby's Mama mentioned that this baby is going to be a new light in the world.  Last but not least I embroidered a Monarch Butterfly because just as I arrived for the Baby Sprinkle on Saturday, a Monarch Butterfly flew across in front of me, and it's the first one I've seen this year.  It felt like a symbol of Hope.

Canada Day! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Tempting.  πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Very tempting.  πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Happy Father's Day!!

I chose this image because it has polar bears, and one of my sons is away from his family on 
Father's Day, as he is up on Alaska's North Slope, with polar bears, doing bird migration research.
