My bro and sis-in-law are having a wee little girl in January. During Leaflet naps, I managed to crank out a cocoon and hat for my niece.
I used Homespun yarn in a warm brown for the cocoon and hat and in oatmeal for the flower. The button on the flower is from my late grandmother's button collection. Grammie loved to sew. I'm pretty sure she's the reason I love crafty things so much. Boy, did she LOVE Christmas.
The Leaflet is 5 months old now. We've been battling reflux and fighting sleep, but the smiles, coos, and laughs are the bee's knees. He's just plain awesome, and I want him to stay this age. No more growing. He has agreed to this...or at least I think he has.
Hope you all enjoy your holiday season. See you in the new year! It should be a great 2012.
