New Life

New life in two senses today! I finally recovered from a wedding over the weekend ~ AND

today Sidney was born – on Frodo and Bilbo’s birthday! My niece Anna gave birth to her first child. To celebrate new life in both senses, I attended an O Baby consignment sale, where one of the things I bought was one of my favorite books: On the Day You Were Born, by Debra Frasier.

“Welcome to the spinning world,” the people sang, as they washed your new, tiny hands.

“Welcome to the green Earth,” the people sang, as they wrapped your wet, slippery body.

And as they held you close they whispered into your open, curving ear, “We are so glad you’ve come!”

  1. Katherine,
    Thank you for subscribing to my blog so I could find you! What a delight and I am immediately going to check out your Fiber Arts!
    I love to showcase other people’s creative expressions to inspire others. It seems we have the same thing in mind except yours is a much more gracious way! (I’m not putting myself down – It’s just simply who you are and who I am — makes the world a really marvelous place!)
