Our new grandson!

Well, here he is, all 10 pounds, 13 ounces of him! But he is so adorable! And the mother is doing great too.We are so proud of her and the way she handles things.The doctor tried three or four times to give her an epidural and it didn't work!
This is a picture of the proud grandma!
He already loves his soother.
Can't wait to see them again today. Our other grandson, Jacob , will be coming for night today. He is so much fun to have around, just a very lovable little boy!

I am glad I made the right color diaper bag. I finished it just before Joel called with the news, and as I was sewing, I was thinking, will I need to make a pink one yet?

Big Job accomplished!

This is a diaper bag for DD that I have been working on today. I feel SOOOO good that it is done. I think it turned out very well, and I love the fabric.
This is the side pocket.
It has 4 fairly big pockets on the inside as well. They should come in very handy, when you need to take everything but the kitchen sink with you when you have two small children!
This bag was quite a bit of fun sewing.

Some new layouts

These are some layouts that I've done over the last few days. I am always amazed at how much time I spend doing one page. I am in the process of making some display boards for my parties and open houses. I want to make a display for each new paper pack.I'm making the displays on cardboard stands, with plastic bags to slip the pages and cards into so I can change them when each new catalogue comes out.
I usually make two-page layouts, but this time I only made one page layouts because of the display board. I can't place them on there side by side anyway.
I'll post some cards too once I'm done with them. This paper pack is called Perfect Day. It is new for this catalogue. I really like the new colors and patterns. The patterned paper is now two-sided, with a monochrome pattern on the back.

I love the Rockies!
Some boats at the Big Whiteshell.

Agricultural Museum

Last Saturday we took a trip down to Rollag, Minnesota to the museum. We saw a lot of tractors, mostly John Deere. Their special feature this year was John Deere. They have a different feature every year. Henry was thrilled to see a tractor almost like his dad used to have. I told him to sit on it to take a picture. His Dad's was like this except for the steel wheels.
When we left the museum, we went to Detroit Lakes for supper. We met some friends there at Zorba's. It is a great little place to eat, with very yummy pizza.
We were planning on staying the night in Fargo, but there were no rooms available anywhere, so we decided to go home. We got home around midnight. It was a great day, spent together with Henry and james.
