  • 64 size 2 diapers
  • wide ribbon
  • elastics,
  • two receiving blankets
  • the handle grips are a pair of baby socks
  • a baby bottle is the headlight
  • stuffed poo bear
  • three bibs 
  • one fleece blanket for the seat.
 Happy new year all.

Welcome to the world Liam James - Congratulations Véronique & Scott

Our Katimavik daughter Véronique and her husband Scott have a son. 

Liam James 5lbs 6oz, 19 inches long.  He arrived four weeks early.  Mommy, daddy and bébé are all doing fantastic! 
My dearest friend Barb gets her grand-daughter every Wednesday.  About a month ago, I asked Scott and Véronique if I could have baby one day a week.  Scott says sure, in fact they will drop baby off on Friday evening and pick him up on Sunday when they come for Sunday night family dinner.  For obvious reasons, I vetoed that plan.
Yippee!!  A grandson.... ~dancing around the room with glee~

Secret Santa Presents arrived!! - Yippee

  I picked up the parcel yesterday.
A plain brown envelope from my Secret Santa.  Much to my delight there were four presents!  Not one or two.. count them.. four presents.  I must have been extra good this year.
 Looks like I got a Christmas card as well.  Cool.
A lovely Christmas ornament, this wee bag is full of quilting items has a heart with a bee on it that says "Quilting Bee".
Two very pretty pot holders,  I can always use more pot holders. 
 The white side is the front and red is the back.
 Front side of potholder number two.
 Back side.
A beautiful home sewn credit card holder/wallet complete with a gift card from Second Cup.
 Made in Germany - a fancy designer Christmas tissue pack. 
 These tissues look like fabric.  This will come in handy.
Thank you very much Secret Santa for all the great loot!  Merry Christmas to you and yours.
