Buttonhole Stitching and Baby Cuddling

This week flew by with a bit of stitching, a bit of knitting, our usual volunteering, and a bit of time with Baby Max.


This week's TAST stitch was the buttonhole stitch, which after a bit of doodling, seemed just right for the birdbath. Debra challenged us to make one of her flower-creations, and a little one just popped up next to the birdbath. I also had fun stitching in person with Tahlia and some other CQers at a nearby mall!

Then yesterday, we spent much of the day cuddling Max and learning how much fun it is to have a grandchild closeby.
Mommy looks pretty happy, doesn't she?
Bliss!

So very sweet. Great photos, as always. Especially the one of Max (love that name!) with Grandmother's hands.

Dear Judy and family,

congratulations to Max' birth and all the best for his life!
What a lovely, sweet baby he is and the mother and grandparents so proud of him.
I love the name Max, here in Bavaria a lot of boys are called so, a good choice indeed.

Have a good new year, which started so fantastic

hugs and kisses to all
