We waited and waited--Welcome JJ


J.J. Baby arrived this morning at 9:40 am. 7 lbs, 7 oz and 20 inches long. He is perfect and already a very good baby for his momma. My son and daughter in law worked very long and hard to bring this miracle into the world. I am so proud and happy for them. Thanks to everyone for their loving prayers and words of encouragement...to this over tired and anxious grandma. Now I can stitch away to my heart's content knowing he is safe in his parents arms. This photo is at about 1 hour old. Very long, cone head from putting himself in a very snug position!! But bright eyes, healthy fingers and toes....my 'nurse' assessement is perfect. More photos to come.

Happy Birthday dear JJ grandson!! Welcome to the world....may God Bless you and your parents with a wonderful life together!

Waiting for JJ


A very random and quick posting of my busy work the last few days while waiting for JJ to arrive. We are all getting very impatient to meet this little one. And dear Danielle is very tired of waiting, as we can all appreciate the mother's viewpoint.
Smocked cap is Judith Marquis pattern...I made the next to small size...up to 12 pounds I believe. It looks big to me, but I am sure will work.

.
Fabric is Fabric Finders cotton Chambray. It was a 'leftover' piece that I was not quite a yard by 58 wide. Thrifty cutting including bias for piping!!

Michie's pleated bubble with his initials on the center pleat. Size 3months

I am a very impatient grandma...I pray dear baby arrives soon, safe and quickly. Certainly would be a delightful distraction from the summer heat! Hope he likes his new outfit! 
The summer heat is brutal, and the shoppe lost power late Wednesday afternoon, so I am hoping this morning it is restored. Sadly, the phones are also out when power is out...sad.Posted by Picasa
