I have had a wonderfully productive few days in the "Making Things For Grandbabies" department. Let me just tell you - this could become slightly obsessive. It's just so much fun. I wouldn't have a problem at all quitting my job and just staying home all day sewing and knitting for my sweet babies.
Here are some prairie points and fabric cut out and ready to sew together for Ava Claire's quilt. I love the colors - bright pink, soft pink, and green. It's nice that everyone knows she is a girl so I don't have to keep everything a secret like I had to for Tyler.
I just finished this little hat for Ava Claire. It's from the Itty Bitty Hats book by Susan B. Anderson. Anyone who loves to knit for babies must have this book and it's companion Itty Bitty Nursery. There are so many cute baby things in it - the hardest part is just choosing what to make. I'm looking for some blue and orange yarn to make a special hat for Tyler - his daddy loves the BSU Bronco's - and the first game is August 30 - yikes! I need to get started.
I knit these little moccasins for Tyler and now I'm working on a pink pair for Ava Claire. They knit up really quick and are just adorable.
Here's some flannel all washed and ready to sew into little receiving blankets for Miss Ava. I made a dozen or so of them for Tyler and his mama tells me she wouldn't know what to do without them. Sometimes it's the most simple things that work the best. Don't you just love that pink fabric with the green frogs! Miss Ava's nursery is decorated in ducks and frogs so I think her mama will love this one.
