What's Going Down

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

If you give...

a mom some knitting needles, she'll need the perfect shade of yarn.
And when she has her yarn, of course, she'll search for the perfect pattern.
And once she's found it, she'll make her sweet baby a gorgeous little shrug.

And then she'll realize that her little girl needs a dress to wear with the shrug.

And being that she's a resourceful type, it'll be a dress she has to make herself.

And of course, the mom will need some material for the dress for which there is no pattern.
 And then the mom will remember the beautiful king sized vintage sheet she picked up at the thrift store, which will match the shrug she knit.

And when the dress is done, the little girl will need a matching pair of bloomers...
Oh wait. We haven't gotten that far.

I think I felt a tiny twinge of baby hunger in my uterus.

Beautiful. All of it!

Oh good. From the last post, it seemed she was wearing something that was knit, which made me obviously wonder if YOU knit it. Now all my wonderments are laid to rest. Very adorable by the way. My poor baby just wears ordinary clothes.

I gasped. Just divine.

Adorable! That is gorgeous, the dress, the shrug and of course the baby.

So freaking awesome.... And that totally looks like the sheets we had growing up. Mom better watch her linen closet closely when I'm home in June.
