Wow! Last night at 22.07 I became a Great-Grandmother! My little Granddaughter, Daisy gave birth to a beautiful little girl. All are well, and I'm sure I'll be inspired to add to the Baby things I've already made for her.

Here goes for my first ever blog post .......
for my first handmade rings :)
