Making Memories and, well... Making Memories

Making Memories is the name of the organization that Crazy Quilting International works with every year. They send us bits and pieces of wedding gowns, our group makes individual blocks which are then sewn into quilts. The quilts are donated and auctioned off, with the funds going to breast cancer research.

This year our color scheme and theme was to do jewel tones (on the given white/ivory) with the theme of butterflies and/or dragonflies. These are 8" blocks. I did my block at the CQI Retreat.
And then I got to babysit my new little granddaughter London last week for several hours. It was her one-month birthday. Here she is pictured in her carrier, asleep (at this age, it's what she does best!)
Actually, she spends a surprising amount of time awake, looking around and observing things. She really liked some small colorful windchimes I have in a guest bedroom. She wasn't overly impressed with the brown stuffed giraffe, and my singing certainly got her attention, although I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing, LOL.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of us TOGETHER, but when my DIL came to pick her up, and I decided I would let sweet London go back to her mommy, I did get this cute picture of the two of them.
It was certainly a memorable afternoon for me!

Too sweet! Beautiful child. I am sure every moment with her was full of joy.
