Two Lovely Boys

Here are our two lovely grandchildred Jude and Freddie, they are so beautiful, if I sound like a doting Grandmother it's because I am.
We are still sitting looking out at snow which is really beginning to get annoying,, I phone Kathleen every morning and we moan about the snow we have beecome obsessed with snow.
It is quite frustrating for me at the moment because I want to buy new garden plants and because I don't know exactly when we are moving I can't, Tony did go and get Kathleen and me a Bramley Apple tree the other day which is potted ready to move with us but usually I am haunting the garden centre's at this time of year, never mind I must possess my soul in patience.

I have just started to read this book and I am finding it really interesting, it's  about a young Quaker girl travelling to America from Dorset and trying to settle into a new Quaker community in Pennsylvania and learning about the runaway slaves, there is a lot of information about quilts and quilting and Tracy Chevalier actually made a quilt so that she would be know first hand what it was like. I am sure it will go on to include the Underground Railway which was a way of helping slaves to escape, I am sure that if you enjoy quilting you will enjoy this book.
