Tina, the sweetie pie from Tea and Wooly Socks, sent a sweet toadstool bonnet to our Lizzy! Don't YOU LOVE it? Tina has an Etsy shop and she sells knitting patterns, too. She's an amazing knitter and crocheter. I bought one of her knitted bonnets for Samantha Rose when she was expected three years ago and now the two sisters each have a Scottish bonnet. Isn't that fun? Jenny said she will place the bonnets in the girls' "saving tubs" and they shall have them when they leave home and get married. Awesome!
What do you suppose Lizzy is thinking about?
Here is my amazing sister. She is here to help our Kelli (she had surgery last week and is recovering well!) with her girls while she gets back on her feet. Auntie Karol LOVES babies, too!
I must get busy making another baby shawl for Elizabeth Kelli. She looks cozy, doesn't she?
Big sister Sam is doing SO well adjusting to her tiny sibling. She's sweet and helpful.
I am having A LOT of fun making my SMASH book.
I forgot to tell you about my "tutu" slash petticoat. I don't have any dresses or skirts to wear it with YET, but I'm planning.
If you haven't checked up on The Willows lately, you may want to pop over to Liz's blog. They have been having a high time in Australia and they have one more stop there. Sarah at The Provincial Homemaker hosts them next. After that, they'll go to New Zealand to stay with Angel Katie! I expect them home around the new year. I shall add "the book that has been around the world" to my collection soon! I will show you every annotated and decorated page when it arrives. Wouldn't you love a GRAND TOUR that lasted over a year? The boys have been on quite a ride! It's been such fun!
My October has been very full. Has yours? I am making a juicy pot roast for dinner. There is nothing like the smell of pot roast for making the occupants of a house feel loved, is there?
I hope your Sunday (and the rest of your week) is full of "real stuff" like family, food, and LOVE.
