This December we two grandmas are reliving history through our Catherine. It seems like yesterday but wasn't, and we didn't know each other then. One December long ago, I was expecting Catherine, and another December a bit longer ago, MaryAnn was awaiting Catherine's husband, Brent. And now Catherine and Brent are waiting. Baby S. is due to arrive with the New Year, but will he keep us waiting that long. We don't know. But we all are waiting none too patiently...... Catherine arrived on December 28 and Brent held out until January 10. When, Baby, when?
Brent requested a "coming-home" hat, and as you can see there was enough yarn left to make some matching socks.
Last summer I used a pattern from Churchmouse Yarn and Tea to make this blanket.
My blogging friend Linda made this wonderful diaper bag. I suggested some colors, and she found perfect fabric. (How did she know that Catherine spent weeks in Africa with her former job ? You will see lots of other beautiful bags as well as pictures of her pretty California garden at her blog.)
And I made this hat "just in case!"
We are ready and waiting and praying for a safe arrival. Whenever, Baby, whenever you are ready. Godspeed!
