William is Here!!

Here is one last belly shot from the night before we went to the hospital to be induced.
William was born at 1:12 pm after a 5 hour labor.

He isn't too happy with life in the outside world!

William is getting his hair washed and liked that.

The girls thought that he was pretty neat!
William and Daddy.

William with Grandpa.

William with Grandma.

William is all ready to go home.
We are finally leaving the hospital! (Because I tested positive for GBS, he had to be at the hospital for 2 days.)
William all snuggled in.

Baby Shower

Here are some pictures from the baby shower that the ladies from my church put on for me last Saturday.

Romanian Point Lace Fish

To make a Romanian Point Lace object, you need to start with a pattern.

The braid is whip stitched to the pattern.

Here some of the areas are filled in with needlelace.

The fish is all filled in.

The fish has been removed from the pattern.

I have sewn the fish onto a blanket for William. It is designed after one of the fish on his baby quilt.
