We have had a very special week. About a week ago DS1 and his wife had their first baby and we became grandparents. Big smile! I washed and ironed this mini garment I had saved from the young father's wardrobe so the junior can wear it during his first weeks.
He also got the soft burb cloths I knitted
and this mini washcloth from the rest of the yarn. He is ever so sweet and I'm happy to be a Mummo.
One week later DD Kaija had her first book published and her own exhibition opened. If you want to see more, visit her blog here.
She will show more photos there, especially a lovely book chandelier. My daytime photos of it look just dark. If you go back in her blog to December you will see many of the mixed media projects in process. It feels so good to see one's offspring happy and to admire their achievements.
The other weekend we had the Big Garden Birdwatch day and counted 10 species within one hour. The waxwings arrived a few days later, they come from the North and eat all rowan berries before continuing their flight to other gardens and woods. They are beautiful birds but just rare visitors.
