Tuesday's Child is Full of Grace...


"Wee Benjamin William" arrived safe and sound and healthy in the wee hours of the morn of Tuesday, 30 June, 2009! Mommy, Daddy and wee babe are all wonderful! Welcome to our family my precious grandson...

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child that's born on the Sabbath day
is bonny and blithe and good and gay.


As you all know, I am woefully behind with blogging yet again... Thus, nothing doing but I must travel back in time a couple of months and bring you all up to date with some family and baby shower photos before the arrival of "my precious Wee Willie"... I have teased Jamie and Danielle quite gleefully about my nickname for Benjamin, and of course nothing doing but I must chant the nursery rhyme, "Wee Willie Winkie" along with my teasing... It was a favourite told to me at my Grandmother's knee when I was a child and of course one I recited to my children as well when they were were babes...

And you know, of course, I had to toss in a stitchy photo or two for good measure! I have more stitchy updates and photos to share, but will save those for another post... I had started Noah's Baby by Hillside Samplings some time ago... and it was nearly finished but alas, I am having to frog "a lot" of over one stitching on 32ct Belfast Linen which is not going well for me at all... to say the least! So, I'm plodding along and completely discouraged with it! My dear KS Jan, Help! I need your expertise here to frog this sampler for me! ;) As much as I dread the thought, methinks I'm going to put this sampler away for a wee while, those black frogs made quite a muck of it indeed, and I'm moving on to something else... Thus, I started something new for "Wee Willie" on the eve of his birth...


Dragonlets Birth Sampler by Dragon Dreams...
Spice Blend Arabian Nights
Stitches and Spice Cashel Linen
DMC Threads...
Started on 30 June, 2009...
And you know, Mr Darcy
just had to be in the thick of things... ;)


And Mr Darcy says... "It's my precious..."

And Shelley is sooo ignoring him!
I just couldn't resist this one! ;)

Wee Willie Winkie
Runs through the town
Upstairs and downstairs
In his nightgown.
Rapping at the windows,
crying through the lock,
"Are the children all in bed?
For it's now eight o'clock!"
I just couldn't resist... ;)


Thank you all so dearly for your continued visits and kind, fond thoughts and wishes... and your emails... You are ever bright stars in the gloaming...

May the sun's rays always shine upon your paths and your long days and evenings remain content with blissful Stitching thyme...


Blessings and Love Always in Stitches...

Lizzy


I am grateful for precious moments... blessed grandchildren and children... and dearest friends...
