I can't believe the entire weekend is gone already. I have no idea where it went or where I was while this was happening. I survived it though so I guess I can't complain. The baby shower went well and my cousin loved the blanket and the teddy bear. She was more surprised that I made the bear...she had a clue already that the blanket was coming. I'm so thankful that I have family who appreciate a handmade gift. She had the blanket in her lap for a while and whenever someone new came in...she would take it out and show them and tell them that I made it. It made all the struggle with that dang yarn seem worth it. The photo shows most of the things I gave her...all handmade except for the outfit. I tried to con her into believing I made that too but she wasn't buying that. lol Worth a try. :P I put these in a laundry sized wicker basket along with some baby wash, powder, shampoo...that sort of thing and used the blanket to cover everything. She was really happy with it.
I feel like a major weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Whew....loved doing it for her but glad it's over. A friend of hers asked me about making her a blanket (for pay) but I just don't think I want or need to get into that right now. I have a shawl to get busy on and I need some time to relax and get focused again. I can't even remember what I wanted to knit next.
Off to relax and do absolutely nothing. *yeah, right*
