God has blessed Ellen and Doug with a precious little bundle, our second grandson. Little Nathaniel Owen arrived a few days early and in near record time. What a delight he is, so amazingly formed and singularly made. Mom and baby are fine and getting adjusted to their new schedules. Dad is adjusting too, to sleep interruptions and lots more laundry.
As the doting grandmother, I got to make him a quilt. It is black and white on one side, colorful on the other and measures 36″x40″. The colored side is made from fabrics mom and dad brought back from Africa when they were there several years ago. Both parents have clothing made from several of the fabrics and the others were purchased because of their colors and patterns. The label is an appliqued elephant who bears all the pertinent information.
