Generosity

Where did the past few weeks go? Well, first Audrey got sick. I figured we were doing pretty well, two weeks in daycare before she got sick. Unfortunately it was a virus, so we just had to suffer through. Then I got sick. And I understood why Audrey was screaming her head off. I really wish the Dr would have told us from the beginning to use Ibuprofen. Tylenol just did not work long enough. But Audrey is back to her happy self and I am starting to feel normal. I actually did laundry yesterday! Mainly because the only pants I had left were either way too short or had a hole in the rear.

It is amazing how generous people are when you have a baby. We got so many beautiful and useful gifts. Here are a few of the fiber related ones. This sweater was made by Pam who runs Knitter's Palette in Lakeville, MN. I could not get the color right, it isn't quite this dark. Audrey looks so cute in it!

This was a blanket made by the ladies who attend the Knitter's Palette Sunday and Friday groups. It is Baby Cashmerino, lined and has a crochet edging. It is so soft and beautiful!

This blanket was crocheted by my Grandmother. It was the last blanket she made. It is so beautiful! We got Audrey's 3 month pictures taken with her laying on it.

Hopefully when the next person I know has a baby I will remember to be so generous. I know I loved all the handmade gifts I was given.

  1. Oh, I hope the color of Baby Cashmerino I got for Audrey's sweater is the same as the deeper color squares! But the sweater will be a 1 year size, she isn't close to 1 year yet, is she??? LOL!
