Loose Threads: I Have A New Grandson!

I Have A New Grandson!

I'd like to interrupt the quilting to tell you that I have a new grandson.  Malcolm Lyle Krug was born about 3 am March 14.  Here he is when we went to visit him the evening of his birth day.  


That's me holding Malcolm.  He is a little bundle of joy.  He was born a little over 2 weeks early, but he is doing just fine.  

I tried to get him to open his eyes, but he was just too tired.  

I spent the night Sunday and most of the next 3 days with Malcolm's older brother Daniel.  Daniel will be 4 next Monday.  We celebrated his birthday early this past Sunday afternoon just in case the baby arrived before his due date.  My daughter-in-law went into labor that evening so we celebrated Daniel's birthday just in the nick of time.  


My daughter-in-law is a teacher and very creative.  The theme of the party was games.  There was a Candyland cake.

Rainbow Road fruit tray.

Vegetables, crackers, and cheese tray Chinese Checkers.

The main course was french bread pizza made to look like Dominoes with mini pepperoni pieces and green peppers.  

If you follow me on Facebook, you've already seen this photo.  Grandchildren are really a wonder and quite a lot of fun.  

I didn't get all the way unpacked from my visit to Michele's to see Bonnie Hunter and do a lot of other quilty things.  More on that trip in my next post.  As soon as I get rested, I'll get back to quilting.



This is my Nearly Insane quilt, Lime Phosphate from 2008.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.  

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

What a precious little bundle! Aren't grandchildren the best?
Good think you have a bright DIL, who was prepared for an early arrival. Maybe doing all of that prep work for the clever party put her into labor! : )
Great photo of you and your hubby with the new little arrival.
Oh, love that green quilt--great name for it, too! I have contemplated making that quilt, but don't know that I ever will. Your quilt makes me wish I would. Just wonderful!!
