Six months ago, my husband and I were married on a beautiful day surrounded by friends and family from all around the world. Among our guests were six pregnant women. Six! One gave birth about a month ago and the rest of them are all due within days of one another, between November 30 and December 4. I went to the post office on Thursday and shipped off four baby gifts, and my tracking information tells me they have all been received – so I want to finally share what I’ve been working on this fall! The others will be delivered soon.
I hung them on the clotheseline one very cold morning last week.
This blanket went to Alta and her parents – a college friend and her husband – who live in Brooklyn.
This quilt also went to Brooklyn, to a friend I know from my Star Island days. She is having a boy.
The small one will be hand-delivered soon to friends who will be surprised about their baby’s sex.
This one is for Baby Quixote in Massachusetts, son of a high school friend and his wife.
The round yellow blanket went to Connecticut to another Star Island friend and her husband. They’re having a girl.
This one will be traveling just a couple miles up the road to some local friends who are having a girl.
Here are some more pictures of the baby presents. I am very excited about meeting some babies before too long!
