Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!

Well, I'm sitting in front of my computer with a lump in my throat and tears streaming down my face. My granddaughter Arabella Grace was born less than an hour ago, at 1:47 p.m. She weighs 5 lbs. 10 oz., is 19" long, and (to quote my dear son-in-law Pat) she has "fire engine red hair." I am over the moon in love with her, and I haven't even seen her yet.

Just last night, I finished sewing all of her nursery accessories (diaper stacker, crib bumper pads, etc.). With that happy task complete, I finally had time to make this tiny sterling and pearl bracelet to grace her tiny wrist (because if you know me, you know that my granddaughter must have beaded jewelry!)

It's all wrapped in a bit of organza ribbon, ready for the most special little girl in the world.

Stay tuned -- You know I will post photos just as soon as possible!


  1. I am so happy to read this and see the pictures (I have tears too!) God bless you!

  2. I am so happy for you and Andrea and Pat!! It is so wonderful! I love the bracelt and I know you can't wait to hold that precious baby!

  5. Oh, Linda--how sweet!! We've just returned--good to be home, but I miss them already!! We'll have to get together soon... M.A.
