My little sister is expecting her first. Any minute now. Or hour. Or day. Little Grace Elizabeth obviously has the stubborn gene that is genetically inherent to the female species. Yes I said species. She is been due for a day or two now but is obviously waiting to make her entrance on her own time. Its driving her Grandmother nuts! It did give me time to finish my gift to her on her birthday. An empty book. For her to write her life story in.

Welcome to the world Baby Grace.

Bubinga with curly Maple. Finished with BLO and lazer etched ‘cover’ design.

A very nice gesture to the little girl who will soon come into this world. I hope she can fill that book up with great memories and a wonderful story.

very nice thought. I’ll leave the species comment alone. Good luck to all.
