For Baby

We had a house full this weekend. Most of the family gathered here to have a baby shower. Sadly the parents of the baby live 3000 miles away. So we gathered to show what we were giving to the new one, wrapped the presents together and sent them off.
Several people are very handy with their hands, yarn, thread and fabric.

Krista travels with her bag of yarn . The beautiful bag was made and given to her by her mother-in-law. She has several projects under construction.

Krista made this sweater for the baby boy who is coming soon. The pink yarn in the bag is for a sweater for a baby girl.

Wendy made this darling hat.
She is also working on another sweater.

Such craftiness! Just love it.

While they were knitting, I was sewing.
I used a McCall's 3063 pattern. I have always
loved baby formal wear.

There were other very cute outfits, sorry , no pictures.
It was a fun family time. the food was great too. More about that tomorrow.
