More On the Layette

FH was home sick today. While waiting at the doctor's office I was able to get quite a bit done on the layette. The bonnet is completely finished. The bow was extremely simple but dull. No other way to describe 60 rows of single crochet. ;-)

Found that all the leaf appliqu├ęs are complete but the only large flower I had originally made has a visible mistake when compared to one I worked this morning. Worked a second new one for the hat. Need three more for the jacket.

I successfully reworked, trimmed, and attached the flowers to the booties. I still need to get some ribbon to lace them.
Now I just need to trim the jacket, make three more big flowers, find some small buttons, and attach everything.

I missed the Quilter's meeting this morning so I could get FH checked out by a doctor. I may miss the Knitter/Crocheter meeting on Thursday, depending on when the new washer and dryer will be delivered.

Tomorrow FH goes back to work and I will probably work on the lighthouse since it needs to be finished sooner rahter than later. If I make it to the meeting Thursday morning I can play with the jacket trims then.

I have some pictures to take of my newest treasure, but I missed my chance during daylight to get them today. Here's hoping tomorrow is as gorgeous as today was.

Such precious little garments! True heirlooms; I hope the new mom appreciates them as such.
