Healing Sunlight


Polly, like many of our babies, was born with just a touch of jaundice, so today I put her on the window seat to bask in a little bit of mild January sunlight while I rested. It's amazing to me how healing sunlight can be: within the hour, she looked much better.

On a side note, I just finished the baby quilt I had made of Liberty of London squares yesterday. Once it was backed with a silk-wool Dharma scarf and filled with lamb's wool, it was delightfully soft, light, and warm. The only completely handsewn quilt I've ever made, it's the perfect winter nest for a newborn.

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your beautiful baby girl!!!

Second, that picture is GORGEOUS -- like, put it on a poster and sell it sort of gorgeous! I hope you have printed that one, matted and framed it, and have it hanging in your home... 'cause I certainly would!

God bless,
