Baby, oh baby

My husband and I are getting old enough that we don't know anybody having babies these days.  My daughter is also of an age that her friends are finished having theirs.  My oldest grandson has decided he NEVER wants children.  I think that comes from an incident when my youngest grandson was an infant and the oldest was changing his diaper.  The youngest peed right up his nose.  The way the oldest was screaming, I thought the baby died.  When we found out what happened, my daughter and I both cracked up, but the oldest grandson was scarred for life.  He likes playing with children, but is adamant that he not have any of his own and I'm guessing he no longer changes diapers.

I pulled out my Janome sewing machine for this project.  Another item that doesn't get much use even though it sits right next to my desk.  It only takes seconds to change the thread (I keep the invisible thread in the bobber so I never have to change that).  This is from my last order of Lili of the Valley stamps.  I never have enough baby stamps even though I don't use them much any more.  I am also using my Polychromos to shade my copics.  The best of both worlds.  I challenge you to use a tool that you have tucked away somewhere.

Paper: Recollections, DCWV The Dots, Stripes & Plaids; Stamp: LOTV All Our Dreams; Copics: [Skin E000, E00, E93][Blanket B24][Branch G82, G40][Rabbit C00, R00][Baby Clothes B01, B000][Hearts RV32][Shadow N0][Shadow N0], Polychromos
