Amidst great excitement,
the "U" Family welcomes the arrival of

Minnie

Proud parents are Chester (on the left) and Phyllis...

Daddy, Mommy, and baby

Everyone is doing very well!

Unfortunately, we were not in town when this fluffy bundle arrived....

a fluffy baby!
(believe me.... we kept waiting and waiting and waiting....)

but she definitely has her Daddy's hair and her Mommy's coloring!!!

As for me, the Bubbie (or maybe the great-Bubbie??),
 I took the requisite photos of the new babe and even held her 
(at least, Nature Boy and Sugarbaby think it is a girl)
Momma and Baby
and then it was back to the sewing room for me!!!

I have been playing with Lutradur in my spare time...
cutting pieces of it and experimenting with water soluble crayons..
before spraying the Caran D'Ache Neocolor water soluble crayons with water on the Lutradur

which I then sprayed with water....

after spraying the Caran D'Ache Neocolor water soluble crayons with water on the Lutradur

or spraying the pieces first with water
and then painting them with Pebeo Setacolor transparent paint
or some Jacquard Lumiere fabric paint as well.

playing with Lutradur and paint

Family!

Fun!

and finally....

Me on the floor

Fatigue!!!
