This weekend will be very busy getting the homestead ready for ALL the guests coming for Memorial Day weekend; my daughter and grandson, my youngest who hasn't been home in almost a year, and my oldest son and his fiance.  This is going to be one hopping place.
In the midst of all the preparations a quilt for a Baby Shower next Saturday needs to be started and completed!  Whew!  Wish me luck!  It's a good thing that I...
