Henry James

Henry James newly arrived on 15th November to Abi and James, in Reno Nevada -- our first grandchild.

We have been anticipating the arrival of dear Henry since our visit to America earlier in the year, knowing his sex and names long before his size was of any consequence. On this side of the Atlantic some serious quilt designing and making began, with much adjusting too. The quilt's now finished, taking endlessly longer than I ever imagined. Raymond Carver's poem "Late Fragment" was perfect for the dedication on the back. Very soon we're off to America to meet Henry for the first time and deliver our gift.
