Great Finds!

Belly pics

L's bed

More pictures here on First Born's blog.

I'm now rushing to put buttons on all of L's sweaters.

This is a Smocked cardi details here.
I found then cute heart button on the floor of the middle school I worked(key word) at.
I'm thinking of adding more details. Crochet trims and maybe some little flowers.

This is a cabled smock with ribby yoke details here.

While cleaning the attic I found these treasures.

These beautiful linen hand made baby things were given to me by my Titi Lidia in a beautiful basket to bring my babies home.

They are all hand made by an order of nuns in San Juan Puerto Rico.

I was so happy to see that they were all in perfect condition after 30 years.
I love to look at the tiny stitches and the amazing details these women put into there little garments. At the time we had no idea if we were having a boy or a girl. In the OLD days boys and girls would wear these.

The yellow blanket has Dios Me Bendiga (God Bless Me) worked into it and has a little dress to match.
The white has Baby on it

I'm so happy with how the linen stuff came out. You gotta call Fina, and send her those socks I made; we should include a sono pic. I need more hangers for all those sweaters. They're just sitting on the changing pad right now. Love all that vintage gotta get those up on the wall.

Beautiful! My basement does not produce those kinds of things. I have Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles and legos...
