Ssshhhhhhhh someone is sleeping.


But I cannot wait to show her the layette Aunt Angie has finished for her. It might be a wee bit big yet, but she is growing FAST! This is a Leisure Arts pattern I changed up. I like the side opening instead of the normal center. It fastens with 3 pearl buttons that barely show in the photograph. The flowers have the buttons as center accents. And NO worries on them coming off. They are practically welded on! The yarn is the softest chenille baby yarn I received from Mama Urchin last year. I got it like the day after I found out the baby was "on board". Perfect timing. Thank you Jennifer.

Jaiden is absolutely precious. I love when babies sleep with their arms up like that. Like they're reaching for angels. Great job on the sweater too Ange. I don't know how you possibly changed the pattern to a side closure. I have trouble following a basic doily pattern! lol It's beautiful.
