A good day

A beautiful summer day for sure, but it was a good day in other ways. Today was our grandson, Marco's first birthday. I haven't finished his quilt, but he got other presents and like most one-year-olds, was more interested in the wrapping paper and the envelope the card came in than he was in his presents, though he was pretty sweet on the soft doll his sister gave him. We all celebrated with dinner on the deck, followed by birthday cake.

Cake is an acquired taste! (Aren't those three little teeth cute? He is getting teeth asymmetrically)

Today the workers started framing the studio. This is the stage where things really start looking like something.

By the end of the day it was taking shape.

Good things today.


  1. Happy Birthday Marco, he looks so much like Sophia. Your studio looks wonderful, do you go "inside" snd imagine where everything will fit?

  2. Your grandchildren are beautiful. Of course, you know that! Marco looks like such a happy little guy. He also looks a whole lot like his sister.

    Can you remind us... what will be the finished size of your new studio?

  4. I love small children and gifts. They always seem so much more taken with the box than what comes inside. We should get smart and give playful boxes. Your studio is a dream. Lovely setting also. Thanks for the give away too. =!=

  5. Marco is so adorable, as is Sofia. You are so lucky to have them close by. Is Sofia excited about the studio? I see hours spent with you in there as she grows up. Happy Birthday Marco!!!
