Joy from An Art Family knitted that gorgeous hat & mitten set. Isn't it precious? I can't believe hands come that small, but apparently they do (it's been a while!) The detail is so beautiful and the yarn she picked is the softest I have ever felt.
Fellow boat dweller Charlotte (who just had her gorgeous baby girl!) made the burp rag/ bib set and sent it my way. Charlotte has such fabulous taste in colors and fabrics (you should see what she's done with her boat!) and is a sewing whiz to boot.
And speaking of sewing whizzes -- my Martha Stewart neighbor SuperJen who hosted the blessingway sewed this gorgeous hooded baby towel for me. Aren't those mushrooms fabulous? She made that big one from scratch!
Of course Zach can't help himself and has been making things for his sister all the while too. From little beeswax candles to a stack of drawings and cards. But here are his latest creations.
So, I even took a turn at making something. I SO need to keep my hands busy during this waiting game since the body doesn't feel like being as busy as usual (now I understand why people knit. oh I wish I knew how!) Inspired by Nicole at Frontier Dreams I made a little soft block from wool felt. I decided to go with an ocean theme (shocking, right?) and tried my hand at embroidering little pictures.
(that is supposed to be coral on the right there and a wave on the left... I tried! Luckily babies are not picky.)
I swear I wasn't drinking when I was sewing this. I don't know why everything I sew has a swagger to it? Maybe if I tried on land rather than on a moving boat...?
