Gifts for Bébé

Well, this is quite late. But, better late than never. I have had a busy but wonderful couple of weeks, which included an amazing trip with my family to Arizona, Utah, and Nevada AND such a cheerful reunion with some of my favorite people! So, I have a little catching up to do. For now, here are some of the items that I had made for the previously mentioned baby shower!

A matching bonnet loosely based off of the Wiksten lamb hat (Instagram KAL), again, in Chickadee in Carrie's Yellow.

Beau the Bunny from Little Woolens made with yarn from my stash (with a matching bowtie!).

And Finally, my first complete quilt! Which was based on the Purl Bee Windowpane Wholecloth Quilt tutorial. I used Nani Iro 'Shine Many Ways' in Sorongo Rainbow for the front, a pink Kobayashi double gauze for the binding, and a champagne colored Kobayashi double gauze for the back all purchased at Nido. I really enjoyed the hand quilting, it felt really meditative and I like the way that the stitches look. I think I will have to do some more hand quilting, perhaps with smaller thread ( I did just order some Sashiko thread). I used Pearl Cotton thread for this project.

Up next, I am hoping to do a Me Made May summary and a recap of my trip ( I have too many photos not to share!).
