to the warmth of the winter sun~
A Winter Garden blanket
for our newest little grandbaby, Kadence Noelle.
clinging to a frilly little
~~with their faces smiling brightly --
a celebration for our newest, precious babe.
Just as in nature-
No two flowers are alike~~
Look closely to see~~ bits of vintage lace, vintage buttons, cotton yo yo quilt pieces taken from a flea market find, crochet flowers, and tiny little leaves made from tulle~~
They dance across the bottom
of this little baby blanket
(that took me absolutely forever to knit!)
~made with love~
even in the midst of winter-
new life springs forth~
pattern-- my own
(really -- its just garter stitch every row with a 6 row
seed stitch border.)
yarn -- Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino
(I thought I would never see the end of knitting this blanket !)
(a little bit of this and that)
An heirloom for our precious babe~
A Winter Garden Blanket~
How does your garden grow in winter?
I love sharing with you the little trousseau that I've created for our newest little granddaughter. There are several more knitting posts to come yet -- so I hope you aren't bored already! Coming up next --- one more little "frosty" blanket that was made for our babe.
The pink scarves are coming every week -- your generosity has absolutely just filled my heart with gratitude. I will be devoting an entire post to these beautiful gifts very soon- and I am also creating a Pinterest board to showcase ALL of the scarves!
I'm already busy "nesting" this winter -- my hands never seem to stop --- and the first orders will be mailed out in the next week or so. My Grow Your Blog party begins on January 19--- if you want to gain new followers and readers for your blog - be sure you sign up for the party- you are all invited!! So far there over 250 participants -- the opportunity to grow your blog is immense!! The info is on my sidebar. The last date to sign up is January 15-- so that I have time to get all of the blogs loaded into the post -- whew- what a task!!!
Thank you for always being here for me,
for your comments,
and for the love that you send my way~~
