He is a passionate granddad, just as he loved having kids. He has 4 children, 3 from his first marriage, one from his second, still existing marriage.
My brother and sister-in-law own an old farmhouse near Hamburg. The younger daughter, her husband and baby Bente live here, too.
The older daughter and her family live in a village nearby.
She is the one for whom I'm making the quilt. Another view of the quilt.
I feel tempted to make quilts for all my grand nieces...
There is also a grand nephew Max -- not present today, I haven't met him yet; and Max is having a brother or sister in January.
Here, you see Bente making experiments in a flower bed and she ended up covered with ants. She didn't really mind.
