I know a. lot. of babies coming in the next 6 months or so, 1 whom just had her birthday last week, another who will be coming anytime (today?), another in a few weeks, and on and on they go. And most of them are girls! That means I get to knit these fabulous bonnets, which tagged along with a package of diapers, is my favorite frugal (and simple) baby shower gift. I whipped up three of these puppies in three days, and whoops, one was too big for any baby. Best give that one to Ani for this winter. :)This is another fun project I'd had in my head, and although it's not finished quite yet, it was inspired by this one by one of my favorite bloggers. I think I'm going to braid strips of fabric and put them up and down (as shown in the picture, instead of horizontal, vertically 'stacked') and place them in Lukka's room. He loves playing with them and I love the vintage wool, colors and design. I was able to receive a bunch of this fabric from a friend's mother who was moving and down-sizing. I love it!
I'll let you see the finished project in his room when it's done, but I have so many baby gifts and Christmas gifts in the works, it might be a few weeks. Yes, you read that, after my current 'cut' pile gets sewed, I have 2 Christmas gifts left to make...out of about 20. And no showing until December 26th. I really felt rushed this past year and wanted to make sure I didn't have anything to do after October hit, when I can enjoy the holidays and autumn season much more! And I'm SURE a few babies will be born in that time :)
