My Baby is One

Yes, my little girl turned one year old today. Its hard to believe its been a whole year. Wow! She's growing up so fast. Every day she is doing new things. She's VERY close to walking -- she pushes chairs around to get around right now... but soon she'll be off and running without assistance! Then the fun will really begin.

My parents and sister are out of town, so we are not having a party tonight. We are thinking probably on Friday. So, I've got a few more days to finish up her birthday gifts. I promised pictures, so here they are!!

First up, we have a shirt/shorts set. The shirt was painted by Cheryl of Soft and Cozy. The shorts were knit by me using 2ply Targhee wool dyed by Kimberly at Beemer Knits in her "Peppermint Chocolate Chip" colorway. I LOVE it! The shorts still need a drawstring and the finishing needlework. The knit bear was made by Karen of Kool Sheep Soakers. Super cute!


Next, there is another shirt, this time with a flirty skirty! Cheryl did this shirt as well, and the yarn for the skirty is by Kimberly again, too! Its her "Mint Rainbows" on 3ply Blackberry Ridge Merino. I'm only done with the skirty portion of this -- still have to do the undersoaker. The cute little doll is a Bendie Boo made by Stell of Fern and Faerie.
Last up is Emma's birthday blanket. Amy Butler fabrics with a pink satin binding. I still have to do the quilting on this, but will be getting help from my friend Amy of Angelwraps with that on Thursday.

nope -- didn't finish the sweater yet -- But I'll be sure to post about it when I do. I'm nearly done with the second sleeve, though! :) Emma's birthday was a bit more important this week.
