Such joy. We were making the drive out for (3 1/2 - 4 hours) the scheduled c-section, planning to leave home around 7. We got a text the she was in labor around 4:45 a.m. We left a little quicker than intended and arrived to meet our first grandchild.
Just the whole miracle of life is so mind boggling that two cells join and make this! This is now my wall paper on my iPad and cell phone.
OK, I guess I just could continue to gush but I will do my best to suppress it. Needless to say we are over the moon with little man. I just wish they didn't live so far away. I see many a weekend trip in my future.
To catch up on last weekend, I was at my semi-annual retreat to Salty Yarns in OCMD. It was another great weekend. Weather did not allow for stitching on the porch rockers and I really missed that. However, there was much laughter and fun with friends (24 of us!), great food, good times.
I picked up my pre-stitching for a Betsy Morgan class in June. Not much to it and easily doable. I hope to finish up once I am back home.
This is the finished piece which I just really liked from the time I saw it on Swan Sampler Guild last summer. Do I need it, no, but that is a whole other issue. This will be my first Betsy Morgan class and I have been told it is a real treat to have her as a teacher. She did speak at my guild earlier this year and I got a preview of her teacher style. She is a very sweet, talented and sharing lady. I am looking forward to the June class.
Finished my second cup of coffee and time to head to the hospital for some more snuggle time with little man.
