The Generation Game

It is just two weeks, one day until my daughter's baby is due.  It has come round so quickly and we are all very excited.  I have been busy at my sewing machine helping her to make custom bedding as she didn't particularly like the ones in the stores, either too gender specific or too cutesy.

I have made a roman blind for the nursery and made cushions for the rocking chair. Tomorrow morning I will go over to their house to help put up the blind and put the room to rights.

It is really hard to believe that my baby girl is about to have a baby.  It has brought up lots of memories as you can imagine.  Here are a couple of shots of the mother-to-be.

Aw......... she was gorgeous and I a sure she still is, but in a different way! LOL
Your green/yellow cushions & blind on a rocking chair, made me think of my first grandchild when he was first born, as his room looked very similar (colourwise) though it was very small. Rocking chair was a feature though.
Very wonderful to be able to hold your little grandchild in your arms for the first time! Makes me go all gooey just thinking of it.
Not long to wait now!
