New Great-Grand daughter is here

Isn't she sweet? Of course we all think she is just precious. She was born yesterday morning at 4:10 am.
Mommy and Daddy had only barely gotten in the hospital door, they arrived at 4:02 and her birth certificate says she was born at 4:10.That was tooooo close, but they both are doing wonderful.
G-Grandpa and I didn't go over there until about 5:30 pm and I am so glad we waited, everyone else had left, so I got to love and hold McKinley as long as I wanted. I am just excited to see what her big brother thinks. Although he is only 14 months old himself, so he probably won't care much about her.I'm sure as they get a little older they will be very close.
NOW, I must get her quilt done, it will be needed soon, can't let her get cold ***VBS***,
I hope next week when DH is gone I will be able to get some sewing done. I have promised our 14year old G-Daughter a tote for her school books, so will do that first, then make the baby's quilt. I am so looking forward to sewing again, it's been way too long.....
Also, hope to spend some time at our LQS....maybe help out, they need someone and I think that would be good for me.
Take care, hope all of you are having a great Labor Day weekend. Catch you later, Bobbin

Gardens and things

Hello Everyone,

I just realized that it has been over 2 months since I posted, so thought I should check in.The beautiful flower was in our flower bed when we got home in June, I think it is grand. My husband has a really nice flower garden. This year I planted 3 tomato plants, a pepper and a cuckember plant, all have produced very nicely. I have never planted peppers nor cuke's before. several years ago we did have some tomato plants, but I didn't fool with them. This year, however they have been all mine. they are still producing quiet a lot, so will have ( especially) tomatoes for sometime. I have even frozen some tomatoes and peppers. I must be turning into "Suzy Home Maker" NOT!!
When we got home in June, I was sitting at my desk, messing with our checkbook and the chair I was sitting in broke and flipped me on my head,I didn't think much about it until a couple days later, I began to have a terrible headache that would NOT go away, then the dizzyness and nausea set in. Time for the Doctor....Well, it seems that he thinks when we were in Texas last year and I fell, I got a concussion, then when the chair toppled, I injured my head again, the headaches are just now about gone. Most days I feel pretty good. The dizzyness and nausea comes from Vertigo....That is nasty "stuff"...I have been going to therapy for a while now, and that too is about gone. I haven't been able to drive nor sew, it's hard to do either one when your head is spinning faster that you can think.LOL....But this week I have sewed a little, so am getting back "on my feet", still going to therapy, hope today will be the last trip, that is the only thing that has helped. I had no idea what Vertigo can do to a person. And top that off with a concussion and you begin to think you are crazy!
I do hope all of you have had a great summer, it has been nice to be home, I couldn't go with DH, but he went to Chicago. That was the longest I have ever been by myself, DD came by real often to check on me, take me to the Dr.and grocery shopping, and that was all I done. I think the total rest helped more than anything else! I sure would have liked to be sitting at my sewing machine all that time. I have been trying to read all the blogs, sounds as though the summer has been fun for lots of you.That's great!
I will try to be a little better at blogging, I know I enjoy reading what all of you re doing, so when I get some more pictures(or DO something ) I will post again. Keep on Quilting Memories,
