Well my sister Amanda made it safely back to Germany.
She even made it through customs with 100 lbs worth of baby gear.
She and Philipp went to the doctor...
It's a GIRL!!!
Frankly I'm relieved.
I don't know how to make a lot of stuff for boys.
And I have a lot more pink materials to work with.
So yay girls!
She already started requesting stuff for me to make for little Baby Laum.
The first thing on her list was a pair of crocheted booties.
I should mention that I have attempted to make booties before.
I needle felted these. I've never tried to make them again. I should.
It all started with a pair of shoes Mia was given. They were cute but were missing a lil somethin somethin
So I added a lotta somethin somethin...
Ahhh that's better.
So I was lookin at them and thought to myself, "I bet I could figure out how to make those."
I do that a lot now. Now that I've embraced my crafty side I have a desire to deconstruct everything I see and figure out how I can make it myself. I also have a strong urge to embellish everything I own now. I'm working on my self control.
I can't even make dinner rolls that are the same size!
So those are a work in progress.
THIS IS NOT MY BABY
Cause I do.
But the fact remains that this is my niece.
Cute, but not my baby.
