My daughter Aisha and her hubby Tim have a hankering for some cowboy/cowgirl furnishings in their Sydney home so for Christmas I'm making them a western quilt with matching pillows.
Now to send it off to my sweet friend Dawn so she can work her magic and machine quilt it for me in time for binding, wrapping and posting away before Christmas.
But you know, this gift fades in comparison to some exciting news my girl and her man have been keeping quiet about the last couple of months....
They are expecting a new baby next April!
And I'm going to be a Nana once more.
Can't wipe the smile off my face.
Nor can I refrain from sketching ideas for a baby quilt.
In case you're new to the blog here is my precious girl and her one year old angel, Frankie, back in July when they flew in for a visit. (see more here)
Frankie was quite ill last month and spent time in hospital.
Daddy's arms were a comfort...
Seeing her out and about and having fun again was such a blessing and answer to prayer!
Now she's back to her normal happy self and spending time with mummy at the local cafe.
She's just like her Nana because cafes are my second home!
Never underestimate the power of prayer. Frankie's illness is still a 'mystery' to the doctors but she recovered and I know that was by the hand of God through prayer.
(thank you everyone who held her in prayer - you are warriors for the kingdom and we're so grateful)
Today let us send our prayers to Mexico as Hurricane Patricia bears down.
It's already the weekend here in Australia so I'll wave you goodbye and set my sights on housecleaning, washing, ironing, cooking, and spoiling the love of my life - my husband.
