Crafty Friends

Ellery received some adorable handmade gifts that I just can't let go unmentioned.

Laura made us a hat

and dress

and bib

Our neighbor Dana made some cute bibs too!

Thank you crafty ladies! I am getting dangerously close to sewing again. The lint is about to fly, in no small part because of the impending arrival of an auntie for two whole months! Hooray for the whole family!

More Gifts

If you read Kris' blog Quilted Simple you know she is a woman with a lot going on. Which is why I was totally floored when a big box arrived addressed to little Ellery with three lovely handmade gifts inside. Above is this sweet bath towel with an adorable hood. It is thick and fluffy and we use this each and every bath. Ellery is determined to suck on it as much as possible. So sweet!

We also received a sweet little burp rag and a tote bag with pockets that is all rumpled in the picture because it has already seen several trips to the garden and the requisite trip through the wash. Kris, I can't believe you. Here I am with just one kid, struggling to get a thank you note in the mail, and you're whipping up handmade care packages for online friends! I'm so honored.
