Back To The Program.

 We had a great trip but are very happy to be home again. Thankfully the Melbourne weather is cooler this week and I've had a busy couple of days unpacking and then quilting. Thes 3 quilt tops were all made by members of my Melbourne quilt group,  AQA, and I've been happy to get some more of these tops finished and ready for donation.

We both really missed our little grandson, Jake,  and he is showing such an interest in everything around him. He is almost 6 months old and will soon be able to sit unaided.  In the meantime we bought him this little car which is basically a cushioned seat with a car steering wheel and makes various noices and lights.  He loved it and he loved being able to sit up to play. They are going to visit hus other grandparents in the US next week and will be away for almost 5 weeks so we will miss them all. On the other hand, I'm very happy to know that his other grandmother will be able to spend time getting to know him too. We are blessed to live so close now and share so many of his milestones. His cache of toys here is growing too as he is starting to get bored with the same ones. He is trying to crawl but can't quite move his head so he commando crawls but by the time they return home I'm sure he will be on the move properly.
  Hugs, Jan Mac
