Made for a much-hoped for daughter of a young friend at our church who had lost several pregnancies in the past couple years, our celebration on Saturday will be a joyful day indeed!
I played around with some photographs in the early morning light - yes that is frost in the background.
A closer look
After washing the quilt finished at 35-1/2 by 41-1/2 inches, large enough for a newborn to wrap up in, and small enough that a toddler can easily drag it around the house and use it for playtime. The batting is Hobbs Polydown, my favorite for baby quilts.
Shadow-selfToday all the little seedlings we've been raising under the lights need to be transplanted into larger plastic cups, and the spring mesclun mix and leaf lettuce will go into box planters to place on the deck on warm sunny days but brought under cover easily when frost is predicted. In our area there can be frost right up through Memorial Day but some homegrown greens in our salads before then will be much appreciated!
I hope you're enjoying a warm and sunny Monday.
