I had found out a couple of weeks ago she was pregnant-
Or as we said in the South...
It is all ONE word !!
So I knew right away that something must be done about this new information -delightful information by the way !!
So I thought and decided realllly fast to go for a blanket for baby, and if time permitted, an adorable some how sure to embarrass him when he gets older 'Wittle BaBee hat'
(Yes- its gonna be Baby- BOY- how wonderful !!)
So here in semi-chronological order is my visit....
My beloved Dr. D...
who is due in TWO weeks !!!
Super fit marathon runner she is !!!
This is the adorable baby "Gnome Hat' that I made for
Baby Boy that his Mama just HAD to try on !!
(Dr. D. had the wrapping off before I was able to snap a pic !!)
I got the Super easy so quick pattern from Lorajean here...
I used 'Deepwater' chunky -I think- for the hat
and wove two strands of worsted "Toast" in and out to
allow the hat to be snugged up
if needed... thus he cute 'bow'
on the side...
Dr. D. seemed to love the Gnome hat...
Baby Boy might have to go bare-headed !!
Opening the blankie...
I just had to incorporate the 'Toast' color into the edge after seeing
the Granny blanket that
Le Monde Sucrette made for her soon to be here little one...
That Warm Hazelwood Browny colour is Loverly !!
I got the idea of just Big (seven rounds) Simple Squares from the one
is making for her joyfully anticipated baby...
The green is "Guacamole' The cream is 'Bone'
The Lavenderish is called 'Plum Wine'
Upper- left to right is 'Mallard' and then 'Iris'
Bottom is 'Leaf' and 'Petal'
So Pretty !!
Bottom Left to Right 'Aubergine' and 'Plum'
The far Upper left is a royal blue and then 'Bluebell' right below
the darker orange is called (I think) 'Carrot' and the far left orangish is 'Melon'
This is Back Side where I joined the squares together...
I rather like this side- More Character !!
I think Dr. D. liked it....
And commented on how the colours were right on with Baby Boys other things !!
She was rather Surprised tho about receiving the prezzies...
But Thats IS the Bestest kind of Gift... Don't You Think ?
Then on the way home my Dear BFF Gobnart and I stopped at a tiny Fruit Stand... Okay...
It was a man and his son selling berries out of the back of Their truck...
And bought three small flats of BlueBerries and a couple of Pints of RasBerries...
Blue Berries !!
Guess who Just had to do a 'Taste Test' before she even got back into the van ?!?
After munching on De-lishious Warm Berries all the Way Home- jiggity jig...
I used the last three pint of Blueberries to make a Rustic Cobbler....I call it that cause everything I Make is 'Rustic' !!
Oh My Goood-Nessss... Was that SOOO good... Sorry- no other pics :-}
All in All just one of those Verrry Good Days !!
Dr. D. says I am doing just Fine and Dandy !!
