39 years ago today I gave birth to my first baby. As much as I love all my children, there is something special about the first born. You always wonder, before the birth about whether it is a boy or a girl, and wonder what your baby will look like, what colour hair (if any), and what weight etc. I know that these days, sometimes the sex is known, and you can even have pictures from a scan, but back then we didn’t have scans.
She arrived very quick in less than 2 hours, and had the most gorgeous head of lots of auburn hair! A very special delivery. And 39 years later, she is still very special and I wish her lots of love and a happy birthday and many blessings for the years ahead.

Be back next week, with more news and some more quilts.
