Baby Love

This past weekend I helped host a baby shower for a good friend who is expecting her first child at the end of August this very hot and sweltering summer. The theme sort of 'evolved' into birds and nests and little eggs, and we had a fun time creating fresh floral arrangements with birds and eggs tucked in and baking lots of good things to eat.

Most of the little hats I've been so busy knitting went to this on-her-way baby, but another adorable little baby friend who was in attendance was so kind as to model one for me. Isn't she just. the. cutest? What is it about little babies that just make you want to nibble them up? She was very accommodating about the knit hat in the 105* weather, for the 30 seconds we (I) had her wearing it. (we were indoors, of course, with the air conditioner going, but still ;) )

I plan on making many more knit pieces (I have to. I'm addicted.) and I'm wondering if I might bring a few, including the fabric flowers I've made, to Indie Emporium. This year Indie is in September and I'm looking forward to manning a bigger booth there. Hoping today I can get some good painting in, and maybe paint this weekend as well.

Hope you have a good weekend too!~

  2. Everything on you table looks wonderful :) Your little model is very sweet too.

  3. It was such a beautiful shower! You and Tony really need to open a florist shop when you get the time. :)

  4. This looks like such a lovely shower! That particular baby sure is a great model for your little knit hats. What a cutie!

  5. Oh those decorations are so lovely! And chocolate dipped strawberries - yum! One of my favorites. :) What an adorable little model - it looks as though she is loving your hat, even in the hot weather. I definitely think you should bring some to your show - I have a feeling they will sell quite well.
