It's a boy!

Jonas Emanuel Ngo, our first grand son, was born October 19th .Both mother and son are doing well. I have been spending most of my time at their place for the last few weeks.
First I stayed with Jeanette, while Tony had to be away for work. I did make it home for our first guild meeting, but I was barely home 5 minutes from the meeting and the phone rang. She was on her way to the hospital. 2 days later Jonas, all of 8 lbs, 6 oz was born. Jeanette needed surgery and that's the reason I have been there.Next week Tony will be back to work and I will be staying with her. The not being able to lift thing is the hard part.
Today I had a visit from our grand daughter, who is by now almost 6 months old. It is amazing how much babies change in just a few months. I made a touchy-feely quilt for Evelyn with corduroy,velvet, terry cloth, fake leather and a few other things. My plan was to make it bigger, but than it would be hard to carry around for a small child. With some ribbons and lace it should keep her happy.
Now that she has 2 teeth it is time for bibs. This is the first try and seems to fit very well. Notice the cute John Deere fabric with pink flowers! the back is terry cloth. Next step will be to make as many as I can get out of 1 meter of fabric. She can share some of them with her cousin Grace, who is almost the same age.
Now some not so good news. My shoulder has been causing a lot of problems, again. This spring, after all the physio therapy things went very well. It was back to some applique and I thought, that I took it easy. But slowly it got worse again and now it is the same or maybe even worse than it was before. So it will be back for therapy.
I'm almost finished with a small landscape I want to use for my landscape workshops and that will be it for a while. no more block of the month.
