Austin's Gifts

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for Austin's gifts and to show off some of the handmade items he has received. They are all just BEAUTIFUL and I appreciate so much that you took the time to do something for us that is so very special!!

This one is from Sue in Alabama. It was taken on the Fourth of July when Austin was just a few days old. I think we'll do an annual Fourth photo on it each year. Ms. Sue crochets a lot of wraps, pouches, and hats for the foundation. She was the first to volunteer to donate on a regular basis. She's such a sweetheart!

This one is from Minotte. It's an adorable granny square afghan. I LOVE all the bright colors.

Team work made this one. Knit-A-Little and her 2 daughters, Wool Winder, Pink Dandelion, and Mama Bear. Isn't it GORGEOUS?!?!?!?

I just noticed that Knit-a-little has the full story on her blog. Check it out. Who made what?
Lindsay, Knit-a-Little's daughter, made the 4 corners.
Mama Bear and Pink Dandelion, made the turtle, footprints, and others made in the same yarn.
Woolwinder made the heart and the others in the matching yarn.
Knit-a-Little crocheted the border and her other daughter, Kathryn, helped finish it up. Even hubby got in on the action helping to arrange the squares and taking care of the kids while she worked.

And, lastly....Knit-a-Little sent this handmade sweater. I was soooo excited to get it. Austin's gonna need it in Atlanta....yep, it's official. We'll be moving in the next couple of months.

Everyone - I absolutely treasure all of the handmade gifts. I truly do not have the words to thank you enough. I love the cyberworld. It has opened doors for me to meet so many wonderful women!! Many hugs!

Precious gifts for a precious baby.

One good thing about this move is that you won't have to say good-bye to all of your friends...we'll still be there.

How nice to see Austin has received so many hand-made gifts!

I came in from the Philippines last week so I was out of the country for awhile.
