More baby love

Almost five months old. Both grandmas came to visit today, and Valentina loved it.

What I'm working on, and Gramps is up!

I am busy working on a new quilt with a June deadline. I can't talk about it in specifics or show anything, but I hope I can say I am having lots of fun playing with fabrics. I love this part of the process!

Grandpa T, aka Gramps, is awake now, very active and busy wandering all over our back yard. 

Inside, the baby tortoises are celebrating his awakening,
As are Bob and Denise and Alex's babies, part of the same litter. They are visiting for the weekend. 
There is further evidence of tortoise love throughout the house:

Perhaps I have overdone it?

One more Quilt Con photo

Here's one more photo from Quilt Con, taken by Julie. That's me with the Tomato Traveler purse.  It sure was a great quilt festival!

I am working on quilts that I wish I could share, but you know the routine. I will show them when the right time comes. One is for the Flying Geese Quilters fabric challenge, "All Creatures Great and Small." The top quilts will be submitted to the big show in Paducah, so this is something to hope for. I've never been to Paducah, never even entered a quilt. 

The other quilt is for the Dinner @ Eight invitational. And then there's that Valentine quilt I've been meaning to make, for that sweet little Valentine in my life! Lots to do, and I'm excited about it.
