Gifted

Ahhhhh.....hear that?  I do -- it's the sound a quiet house.  Baby sleeping, grandparents occupied with outdoor chores and Jake and Solomon playing together.  Our wedding is over, and slowly, slowly family and loved ones have begun to trickle away.  It feels sad to see them go....all of the excitement of the past few weeks has begun to wind down.  At the same time, peace and calm are definitely what is needed most right now.  It's wonderful to finally have the chance to sit down with my computer, and I'm really looking forward to getting back to work - - both here on the blog and with Seedling Clothing.

First and foremost, I really must dedicate this post to a few very belated thank yous.  Behold the wonderful gifts I've received from fellow crafters recently!  Cadi, over at Maehe Girl hosted a Baby-Naming Giveaway over at her blog a while back, and I was fortunate enough to win this amazing, intricate and beautifully-hued shawl..... (Check out more of her amazing shawls here.)  Thank you so much Cadi - - I felt incredibly lucky to win this piece of artwork.


Next, I was surprised and delighted to receive a package from my friend and fellow crafter, Emiko with two bandana-style bibs in absolutely adorable fabrics.  One for my nephew, Clem, and the other for Aya (though Clem generously shared his bib with Aya, who is shown with both here.)  So thoughtful and generous.  We love them!  Find Emiko's awesome Etsy shop here.


Thank you both so much for the wonderful gifts.
I'm happy to say that I'll be able to check in more regularly from now on.... see you soon!

The shawl looks great on you. I'm glad you like it.

I was never a bib-fan when my kids grew up, so they always wore a bandana tied around their necks to catch the drool. They were sort of famous for it. People called them "the bandana kids." - I must check out the etsy shop.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
