Yep thats right - I will be a grandmother!

My daughter Emma is expecting.  I just hope and pray everything will go well for the baby as she has genetic issues- she has Treacher Collins Syndrome which means there is a 50/50 chance of the baby being affected.

Emma has the condition in its milder form but unfortunately it is not a very kind gene and the baby could have it mild, severely OR not at all.

Fingers crossed (as well as everything else!!!!).

bear_wub Congrats on becoming a grandmother, its a fun thing because when they cry and carry on you give them back.  LOL.  Lets pray for a good outcome with that gene business.  Again, I wish you and your daughter and family the best of luck with that new baby.

How exciting Karon, and how good that you're back in touch with Emma for this important time of life.  You didn't say when the baby's expected, but I hope everything goes well all the way through.

Happy Birthday for today (which will obviously be belated by the time you read this, but I hope you had a good day whether it was a work or play day)  Hope it's the start of a good year.

Have you started a baby quilt yet?

All Best Wishes

Margaret   :hug:

Hi All,

Thanks for the congratulations.

Yes Margaret I INTEND to do a quilt - but I wont say anything - that way I am not embarressed if I don't manage to do it. :crackup:

Emma is 14 weeks along at the moment.

It been a GOOD year this, this year!  Feeling well, got back in contact with Emma, gone through an image re-vamp (MUCH NEEDED), reduced my hours, appreciated at work  and now of course the baby - if I was a cat I guess I would be purring!

"Made friends" properly with my modern Bernina - discovered it is nothing to be scared of!

Going on a needle-felting course on 20/21st of October by a lady called Gilda Baron - look her up, her work is GORGEOUS!!!!  Not bear related, she does the most fabulous landscape.  I am also doing a soft doll course in November bear_original .

In February my work is moving to my home town of Wycombe and when it does I want to buy a young pug x (my rough collie Rupert died 18 months ago - he was 14). I am SO looking forward to that!!!!!  I have been day dreaming pugs ...  bear_whistle .  I want something SMALL and PORTABLE with a BIG dog attitude :crackup: .
