Congratulations on the birth of a new granddaughter, how excited you must be. We seem to have waited forever for a grandchild and then we had 2 born within 13 months, sister and brother. They are now 2-1/2 and 1-1/2 years' old, and what a wonderful Blessing, and hard work.

I have bought the pattern for the Christmas stitcheries, but have not started them yet.
