|With Pallavi, in London|
Back to today - When I learned that Pallavi was pregnant, I was so happy for her. In fact, there was a whole range of emotions. There was joy, of course. I was also feeling sadness - I wish we were closer. There was a bit of elder sister concern - hope she is taking her folate regularly.
|Paul, the model!|
|Thank you, Paul|
But look again, and it may appear like a dancing man atop the Eiffel Tower. I don't know what you think but it is very chic and modern to me, very Pallavi-like. The binding is a pale green to match one of the colors in the backing. The finished quilt is 40" by 60".
Pallavi's boy was born on April 22. His name is Anay, which is one of the many names of Lord Vishnu.
|Labelled with Love|
When Paul saw me with the new quilt, he asked.
Paul: Who gets this one?
Me: There is a new baby boy in London. I love him very much.
Paul: Love him? Have you met him?
Paul: How can you love someone you have never met?
Me: I love his mom. She is the Principal. Her boy is the Interest.
I love the Principal. And, the interest is even dearer than the Principal.
Of course, Paul was confused. It is not easy being married to an "exotic" wife from another culture!!!
|Love & Blessings for Anay|
When grandparents dote on their grand babies, it is often said (in Indian culture) that the interest is dearer than the principal, meaning we love our kids but we adore our grandkids!!!
Now, Anay is not my grandchild but you get the feeling.
I also included in the package two baby blankets. Off to London!!!
Completed this in April but could not blog about it until the quilt reached its destination in London. As always, I look forward to your thoughts.
