Those cloth dolls I started while pregnant
That quilt I started while pregnant
That needlepoint project I started while pregnant

we loved those books
and so dear

And once again, your life makes me feel so normal. 🙂
All the many starts, of this and that and the other. All of the many, many beginnings…
Oh the things, oh the packing, oh the memories…
