Tori, Songbird

Please meet my new sweet granddaughter, Tori Elizabeth. She is a doll baby for sure. Sitting beside her with a protective hand around her is Toby, who is no longer the baby of the family. He seemed so little before Tori came along, and now, at 17 months, he looks the part of big brother. Tori will be well watched over with two big brothers, Timothy and Toby, and two big sisters, Tess and Taralyn. Of course there is Mom and Dad as well.

Tori's other grandmother is Japanese and told me that Tori means songbird in Japanese. I think that is so special and to this Granny her strong, healthy voice was sweet music.

I am in Washington at a business conference and sure wish I was at home holding this little one!

I have finished another Pathwork of Crosses block. I believe this makes 5, but I am losing count.

This one has not been pressed yet. The hotel room comes with an ironing board, but no iron. The ironing board does make for a good sewing table though .

Thanks for stopping by,

What good is an ironing board without the iron??? Duh...Ask for the iron.. I bet you get it.

Since it's a business trip, I suggest you talk to the 'business' about better hotel rooms!

Was wondering when the little Sweet Pea was going to make an appearance! Congrats to you and all the new babysitters!!

Congratulations on the birth of your sweet baby granddaughter. A girl! You are blessed! We've learned today that we're expecting grandSON #4. So glad you're finding ways to include quilting during your travels. Your block looks really pretty.

Congratulations on the new grandbaby!
Your set up with the ironing board looks perfect for hand stitching. So weird that there is no iron for you!!
Thanks for linking up!
