Well, since the last post a lot has gone on in our little house, so I’ll start a series of posts today to try to catch you all up. First and most importantly, we had a baby boy! His name is Denzel Martin Jones. He is named after my Dad. And he is a Gem. He is also very smiley and crawling already too. He was born on the 10th of April. And here are a couple Pictures of him.He was a week old in this picture, and just perfect. He had tons of straight hair, not curly like older brothers. I love this picture because it is so sweet, yet really shows how full our hearts and hands are with these two little men.
Now to introduce the Hat Model, Mr. Denzel Jones!
He is an absolute joy and he is a great hat model 🙂 I also made a big person sized hat (which I finished yesterday which prompted me to remember I had that other one for his pretty little head.) Here he is playing with it. And finally, Mr. Chubbs
Next up, how I turned a goodwill find into a cozy bassinet for this little mans home coming.
It all started with a granny square blanket, well actually it started with yarn lust. The yarn was exceptionally soft and had such a pretty combination of colours. There was purple, light green, yellow and then a variegated one to match. I made the granny square blanket first and had just a little yarn to spare. My sister had sent me some patterns she purchased (here) to have me make booties for her new baby girl. Well those scraps screamed at me to make more booties to go with this blanket.
As you can see I had all the patterns and was trying to decide which ones to make.
I started with the purple and made the sole of the bootie.
Then I switched thread and used the variegated one to do the pattern part, and completed it with purple, and sewed on the little white buttons.
The second pair made with pearly white and pink yarn. I love these!!
This is the completed product. I think they turned out well and they only took me about 45 minutes each Bootie.
