A new baby in the family, and a trip home!!

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, my niece had a beautiful baby boy.
So now I'm a great aunt.
Isn't that exciting!!!

He is so beautiful!!!

Also, I had to drive back to my home town this week,
because we had a sudden death in the family.
It's always hard when you lose someone you care about.

But, one good thing was that I was able to see my parents.
I hadn't seen them in about 8 months.
They live about 8 hours away.

I took some pictures of my parents garden.
They live in Northern Ontario, so their growing season is a bit later then ours.

I always find it so restful to go there.
They have such a beautiful home and gardens.

It's been a week of mixed emotions, with some really sad times and really happy times.
But, I keep moving on through my days, and hopefully will have some quilty projects to share with you soon.
