Show and Tell - May 3, 2009

It has been a long time since I participated in Mel's Show and Tell, but I made some cool stuff this week that I wanted to show. Even better, when I made my way to LFCA I read that Mel's book went on sale this week. How freaking cool is that! I LOVE the name. It feels like a sweet nod to the IF blogging community to use our lingo.

Anyhow, on to show and tell. I have been sewing a lot lately. Friends of ours, who I was somewhat estranged from during our m/c's and pregnancy, have a daughter who is turning 1 at the end of the month. She was conceived 2 weeks after our last loss. So I am still sometimes reminded that our baby would be 2 weeks older than her. But instead we have a gorgeous 5 month old boy - that we love more than anything. I have been making little things for our friends little girl because she is super cool, but also to make up for our absence during her first months of life. I just completed this dress for her birthday gift. She is a pretty rough and tumble little thing... So I am not sure how she will like it, but....



I also made a little stuffed birdie for D. for an easter gift. He fell in love with it and chews ravenously on its little head:) Last week, on a walk to the post office, D. set the birdie free. We retraced our steps, but she was off to greener pastures. Last night I finally got around to making a new one. He was so happy this morning. It is soaked through. Eww.

That's a great dress! And I love the bird (but not as much as your son does, by the looks of it!).

You are doing better than me to be sewing with a baby! I've been trying to get a couple of pairs of school pants for TBB cut out for the last couple of weeks lol. The dress and bird look great.

And D has grown so much! Nice work there too :)

That dress is so adorable! I like that it's not super girlie too- it looks like a good dress for a tom-boy!

And D is so freaking cute- look how big he is! Kudos to you for getting sewing done at all!

(and you are lucky I don't have ~your~ address or those little cheeks on that boy would be red from all the pinching! I love love love chubby baby cheeks!)
