A Unique Mother's Day

Look who showed up on Mother's Day! Our nephew Jon sent us this photo yesterday, and I finally found some buttons for her sweater since I knew on what side to sew them. Look at all that hair! Wasn't her timing just perfect? Welcome Sophie Blair!

We had fun on Mother's Day in a totally different way, a boat ride on Lake Union. Ever since I first saw the duck boats meandering down the streets of Seattle, I've wanted to ride one because they reminded me of the ones I'd seen years ago at the Dells in Wisconsin. It was fun but a bit chilly. (Carl couldn't join us because he's in China.)

I've been busily working on a variety of projects, including these booties which have been sent off and this hat which is the third thing I've made from one skein of yarn. I still have enough left to make a pair of preemie booties, too!

Another cute baby picture! My daughter had hair like that when she was born. Seeing babies with a head full of dark hair always reminds me of her when she was born.

Cute baby duds too.

Dear Judy,
Thank you sooooo much for the baby booties!!! What a yummy surprise. I absolutely love them. And what a surprise for you... getting a yummy baby for Mother's Day.
I have less than two weeks left and I have been so busy. I might not get to post or comment much for the next couple of weeks but wish me luck and I will see you on the other end. I promise to update with pictures as soon as I can. You are such a great friend and blogger buddy to me.
Big Hugs and lots of love,

That picture of Sophie makes her look like a little china doll. She *does* have a lot of hair!
