Dispatches from my adventures: sewing, knitting, and otherwise.

Six Months!

Leave a comment

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.

On the clothesline

I hung them on the clotheseline one very cold morning last week.

This quilt also went to Brooklyn, to a friend I know from my Star Island days. She is having a boy.

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!
