Handmade baby gift

Yesterday I got a little knit cap in the mail from my quilting friend Diana, for our baby boy. It is the first ever cap that she has knitted. Wow, so super cute! It was the nicest thing I've gotten in the mail in a long time.

How special that my son is the lucky one to get to wear it on his sweet little head. Thanks Diana!

If you are just looking to relax for a couple moments, I would HIGHLY recommend taking a break from all your rushing around to view this awesome quilting video by Lauren of My Aunt June blog.

It's one of my favorite posts out there, and I really love her style of quilting. So modern, and done on machine. Not my usual cut of tea, since I prefer to quilt by hand, but the results are so beautiful that I just have to try it.

Hope we can squeeze some ice skating in before Christmas is here. I'm already feeling very merry.

Hi Marisa! Thank you so much for the mention! It's so funny to be going through your Reader feeds and see your own name mentioned! I LOVE your quilts, I wish I had the patience to do that kind of work, but I am more of a HOWFASTCANIGETTHISDONE THEBABYWILLBEBORNTOMORROW person, so I really admire people who do all the handwork like the piecing. And hand-quilting! Hats off to you!
