Handmades: Part I

We were blessed to receive lots of very special handmade treats at my baby shower on Saturday.  You know how much I love and appreciate anything handmade, so I thought I'd share...

These beautiful sweaters were knit by my Grandma. All of us grandchildren were blessed to be able to grow up in Grandma's hand-knits and I'm so glad that my baby will too. That red one may be perfect to wear at Christmas, don't you think?
Grandma also made this lovely fleece baby blanket and my Aunt Wendy is also working on a crocheted blanket for the baby that is made of the softest yarn I've ever felt! I can't wait to cuddle the babe in these. 
My Mom-in-Law made this cute little outfit for Baby James.  It looks like a little adorable!
Mom James also made this cute little baby bouquet; it was full of washcloths and socks. 
My friend Annie sewed this nursing cover for me. Such beautiful fabric and something that will be well-used, I'm sure.
The baby's Aunt Rachel made this beautiful piece of paper artwork.  It fits in the nursery perfectly!
Phew! Can you believe all of the love and time that went into all of that? I'm so thankful.  And one more special handmade will be shared tomorrow. You won't want to miss this...stay tuned.
