Beth, Ginny, and I attended our first Quilt Market this weekend (in Pittsburgh). While it was a wonderful experience for all, it was particularly wonderful for Beth, because she had to leave early. But wait, it was for a good cause! Beth's daughter Laura phoned to say that she had just gone to the hospital to have her baby. So Beth was able to stay at Market for about four hours, while her husband drive down from Buffalo to pick her up, and then head on to Columbus Ohio to the hospital. She phoned us later to say that Brooke Elizabeth made her entrance into the world around 5 pm, at 8 pounds 9 ounces. Both mother and baby are doing well, as is the first-time grandmother!
