Can't say I've thought much about Ironman, and/or his need for a quilt.

My grandson, Blane, not only thought about it, but he also did something about it.  I received this today - his first e-mail to me, with help from his mommy, I suspect.  He's almost 6. He and Ironman were looking for something to do on "their" sick day - so quilting came to mind. (Both of Blane's grandmas are quilters - it was sent to both of us!)

"Grandma, I thought you would like the quilt I made for ironman. It has cannons. I have pink eye. Love, Blane "

when my granddaughter was 4, she drew me a picture of the sun, all colors of red and orange.   I did make a quilt like that and it's called Sydney's Sun.   She's almost 12 now and she decided she would like the quilt to hang in her room, but the original picture still hangs on the wall in my sewing room.

oh ethelda...almost missed your comment! that is a wonderful story! i miss having a house full of neighborhood kids. no matter where we moved over the years, it didn't take long for the neighborhood to find it's way into my house. all guy was a magnet. the first ones would spread the word and i would have older sibling knocking on the door asking if this was ben's house? yes... is **** here? yes..pretty soon the older siblings were escorting the younger to my house and many times stayed to help w the garden, baking cookies..whatever. when my son left home to attend college, i still had some of his friends coming to visit, bring their girlfriends to meet ben's mom. got emails for a few years after we moved here. i so miss them all. you and your hubby are so very very fortunate!!

save these gramma! every once in a while i find one of the "quilts" my son designed for me to make "if you want to, mom" - tucked in w a stack of patterns. his poems about quilters and moms too :)). now, in my box of tools, notions etc there is the first "quilt design" from my oldest grdaughter for gramma ham to make. and i will...even if i don't, the pattern she colored for me is a new generation of treasured momentos. i think your little guy sounds pretty amazing!

You will appreciate this: we are the "grandparents" on our cul-de-sac (i.e. the old folks) and one little boy has adopted my husband as his foster Papa. He was about 3 1/2 at the time when he came over with an action figure. My husband asked who it was. Will(child's name ) said, "ioman". Hubby repeats, "ioman" will says, No, ioman. Hubby says, ioman. Will puts, his hands on his waist, leans forward and says, ioman. Finally, hubby got on the phone and called the Mommy. She laughed and said, Ironman". So hubby told Will, Ironman. Will grinned ear to ear and said, "yes, Ioman!"

grandkids are lifes greatest gift I think.   There's a saying something about them being your reward for going through the trauma of raising children.
