The very windy and stormy last day of March cleared for little while for a show of bright sunshine – and the birth of Mael, our newest grandson! Just home from the hospital, barely 5 hours old and wrapped in what has become an heirloom blanket – remember this: Great Aunt Miriam’s little hand-noted pattern for a baby lace edging was the inspiration to use it in a larger-scale baby blanket, all ready for the newborn a hundred years later… Drops baby alpaca-silk, very soft and cuddly and warm! This is his hospital portrait: 3960g and 53cm… aaahhh!!
Many congratulations to his mum and dad, brother and sister 🙂 ❤ BIG hugs!!!
From Mael’s point-of-view, Great Aunt Miriam is actually Great-great-great-great Aunt Miriam!! (I think, since she was my granny’s aunt?!)
