It's been a scary few weeks, but Madeline Taylor Eliason arrived safely yesterday evening. Our niece was hospitalized a few weeks ago and on bedrest because Madeline wanted arrive way too early. Thankfully, she waited a bit and weighed in at 5 pounds 6 ounces even though she wasn't due until next month. Praise the Lord for modern medicine! And welcome, Baby Madeline. Your blankie will be on its way shortly. (details on Ravelry)
Almost 5 years ago this month, our grand daughter was born, and she'll soon be celebrating that day. Her dolly has been at our house since last Christmas because dolly just didn't fit into the suitcase and seemingly hasn't been missed. Well, Dolly misses Sophia and will be going home in style with a new dress,
a new sweater set,
and thanks to Linda, a new bed. Have a Happy Birthday, Sophia!
Meanwhile, I've been working on Sun Bonnet Sue and learning the Basque stitch
and the Oyster stitch.
Actually, I finished up this block this afternoon and will post it soon.
We have lived in the Pacific Northwest for 40 years and love it. Two of our three grown children live nearby, the other lives in the Chicago area. Handwork is one of my favorite things to do. Lately knitting has kept me busy, but I've done lots of quilting, too.
