Brennen Patrick has not entered the world yet, but there was a baby shower in his honor last weekend. His nursery is going to have the theme of woodland animals, so that was the theme of the journal/photo book I gave my niece, the mother-to-be.
This past week I spent three days with my sister's children while their parents were on a well deserved vacation.Beatrice and I plowed through a weeks worth of lessons due to the promise of a new tie skirt and some sewing time as a reward.
Bea picked out the ties and arranged them as I sewed. Than she sewed a purse out of the remains "Entirely by herself"! As she said, "This is so much fun! I just can't stop saying that.... this is soooo much fun."
"I'm so happy, this is like a glorious moment of my life." ~Bea
I enjoyed it too Bea, you were a great student (of sewing). Well....... Art class was really fun too!
Twenty-two years ago: My husband dropped me off at an airport three hours from our home. He drove back into an unannounced blizzard. Spent 15 hours in our pick-up stuck in a drift between here and there. There were no cell phones then! Family and friends prayed through the night. Brazilian airlines are on strike. I took another airline...landed in Rio, Carnival time and flooding. I am in the south, I need to be in the north. I know my husband has not arrived home. I don't speak Portuguese. People are praying. Fly through the night to Belem ...the Amazon. Phone call - Blair is safe. I become a mother for the second time, meeting our two month old, 6 lb. daughter. Jane Raquel Prayers answered.
I made this necklace as a gift to my daughter
in celebration of the day we met. We are so glad we GOTCHA!
