Saturday was a special day at the Country Loft. My friend Kathy Cardiff had her first book signing. It was so exciting. We put a big poster advertising the book on the front porch to greet everyone. The book is titled The Cottage at Cardiff Farm Quilts.
....and here is Kathy in front of some of the quilts that are in the book. My sister Kathy had set up a great spot for her to greet all her fans in the backyard of the shop.
Her daughter, Taylor was on hand to help her Mom out and be the official photographer....It was a great day. Congratulations Kathy!

On Monday night or should I say Tuesday morning at 12:45 we got a call that Tim (our son) and Lydia were on there way to the hospital. Once they got all settled in they called us and we headed on over....by 12;45 yesterday Lianna Megan Mullaly had made her appearance. This is a photo of them when they introduced her to her big brother Timothy....
Gene and I were really dragging by last night. She is our seventh grandchild....and I am so glad that I have been there when all of them were born!
Hope that you had an exciting April 17th too! Jo Ann

My friend Olga Gunn came over on Tuesday to take pictures for my new book.....I spent time on Sunday and Monday evenings arranging everything into little displays....and totally disrupting the house. Before she got here I took some quick photos of some of the projects myself......Looking at them I know why she is the professional!
I thought you'd like a sneak peek at some to the things that will be in it. That is if I ever finish writing it! Actually my sister did a read through on Monday and I am now onto the corrections!
I think today I might finish off most of the text and tomorrow Olga and I meet to pick the photos that will be in the book....So the end is in sight!
I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter ......Jo Ann

On April 1st we celebrated a Big Day....Pierce, our oldest grandson turned 13. We went to Benihana's in San Diego to welcome in the teen years....I cannot believe that he is that old....of course he is already taller than me (over 5' 8")! I also cannot believe that I did not take one picture of the party....We were all having too much fun!
Here is Collin (in the middle) with 2 of his friends...They are all smiling because they have just become Boy Scouts.....now the fun of overnight campouts begins!
He wasn't too happy here, because we wanted a photo op and he wanted to eat!
They seem to be growing up so fast! ....and of course their grandparent's think they are the best!
I am working on the book again today.....I finally feel like I have made some progress.....but there is a lot still to do. I have been thinking of all kinds of things to do instead this morning, but I can't put it off any longer....:))))
I hope that you are all having great days and finding time to sew ....Jo Ann
