Bye, Baby Bunting........



The popular thing today is..swaddling the baby. I went on the internet searching for buntings or cocoons. There are all kinds of patterns...knit and crochet free that you can download. The pattern I chose is from Bernat. The pattern is shown in stripes but when I went to Michael's, I saw this variegated yarn that I like. The girl that helped me is expecting her first baby in January and she really liked this yarn. I thought it turned out pretty.








I like to give receiving blankets
as a gift and the mother's have said
they have been perfect for swaddling.
I usually buy the blankets at
Target--I found they have a great
selection. I add a crochet edge to
the blanket to fancy them up a bit.
I try to keep some for girls
and some for boys on hand because they make
an inexpensive and useful gift.

My Try at Making Window Stars

I saw the beautiful, colorful stars that my internet friend made. Before I ordered the colored kite paper, I wanted to try my hand with some copy paper. I thought it came out pretty good and I placed it in the bedroom window. If you are interested in making some, go to The County Blossom blog--her link is on the left side of my blog under Favorite Places to Visit. She has really good instructions and where to order the papers. Have fun!
