I don't know what was in the air about 6 or 7 months ago, but baby season seems to be upon me. Not upon ME personally, but upon many friends and family members of mine and thus-ly upon me.
Did'ya get that?
Part of the problem with making gifts for others and having a blog wherein you talk about all your creative pursuits is that those people you make stuff for actually READ your blog therefore you must keep MUM about quite a bit as it turns out.
It can make for a sparse blog at times.
A few people though who are *just so close* to having a baby that they are probably not reading at the moment and *hopefully for them* are already at the hospital having said baby will be receiving a little something from me.
Something made from this:
The top has been pieced already, with just enough non-perfection that there be no mistaking it was handmade (ahem) and it's just waiting to be quilted and bound.
As it turns out, it's quite bitty, so I'm not sure that it's terribly practical for much . . . maybe for use on the wall if they have no "theme" in their baby room or to cover their most special baby doll someday when they have such a doll. Or perhaps it could just be that little lovey kind of blanket that doesn't keep a child particularly warm, but it does keep them feeling secure.
Whatever its eventual "use" it was made with love. So for a little soon-to-be-born little guy or gal, Auntie Skooks says, "I love you, precious one. Welcome."
