New Granddaughter

Elisabeth Ann, our new granddaughter, was born Sunday.  She is so beautiful.  She is about ten hours old in this photo.

I just finished a non-weaving project--a dozen newborn diapers for Elisabeth, made from my daughter's pattern, using recycled, 100% cotton knit shirts.  Here is a link to her website:

I need to send them to her pronto, before she outgrows them.  Hope her mommy likes them.  I think they are cute.

I haven't done much weaving lately, except for the pick-up band on my inkle loom.  It was a nice take along project that I took when we went camping.

I taught my daughter Becky how to do it, and she took to it like a duck to water. (She is also the daughter that has the Fern and Faerie website for diapers.)

The pretty part is now on the bottom of the loom.  It's getting close to being done.
