I'm Late

I'm late posting today.  I've had a busy day.  I went walking in a balmy 51 degrees this morning.  It was great.  Then, of course, since it is Monday, I cleaned bathrooms.  Before I could figure out what I did wrong on the computer, BFF#2 was here.  We had a very fun session of show and tell.  Late lunch was next at one of my favorite places to eat.  White truffle mushroom pizza, lobster and crab rangoon along with a salted caramel brownie (with ice cream) was on the menu.   Luscious!  Fun day.  So that's my excuse for being late to post.

I finished the Bristol Bag.

 It's not perfect but I am happy with it.   Tiny things take such a long time.  The little squares on the end of the ribbons took all day.  I opted to just make four squares and to back them with leftover fabric instead of stitched ones.




This is the thread winder.


I got a text late this morning that Son#2 and DIL are at the hospital!  
Here is the birth announcement so far:
The words at the bottom say "Good things come to those who wait"..
