You might guess from seeing these that
the new wee one will be a boy.
And you would be right!
Just a little announcement - Kathy Shaw has just opened registrations for her ICQC-101 (Design Plants & Block Piecing) online FREE crazy quilting class. Go HERE for further information (better hurry though, she's only taking registrations until midnight April 28th!).
Another of the pieces found in my mother's collection (author unknown)....
Give me one friend, just one, who meets
The needs of all my varying moods;
Be we in noisy city streets
Or in dear Nature's solitudes.
One who can let the world go by,
And suffer not a minutes pang
Who'd dare to shock propriety
With me and never care a hang.
One who can share my grief or mirth,
And know my days to praise or curse
And rate me just for what I'm worth
And find me still - Oh, not so worse!
Give me one friend, for peace or war,
And I shall hold myself well blest,
And richly compensated for
The cussedness of all the rest.
