What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

For a~ BOY


I told you I had lots of *little* things done! Sorta wish I would have not been needing such instant gratification, so I could have spent some time on a coming home outfit. It is really hard not knowing if Smooch is girl or boy.

I still have 3 or 4 things I could have posted this week but I actually ran out of days! Probably a good thing as everyone is probably sick of my recent baby obsession. *I* am sick of my recent baby obsession! :-)

I love this little hat. I would like to make a khaki colored one with brown buttons at some point too. I think that would be super cute too. I used bright colors to coordinate with a bright colored sheet I could use as a backdrop.

Here is the free pattern, KUDOS to Ravelry. (PS. Do get yourself a free membership there if you do yarn crafts.) I opted to create my own band instead of following through with the flower. Next time I think I will make the band longer...maybe.

I, for one, am NOT tired of your baby projects. I'm finding them very inspiring!

This hat is definitely unisex.

LOVE THE HAT! Probably my favorite thing you've made so far, and I am not sick of baby crafts either.
You could double up posts you know...

Cute hat!

I have long wondered - what kind of camera do you use?
I can't seem to get the type of artistic pictures that you can, and I think it's partly because i'm not very skilled and you are wonderful, and maybe you also have a better camera than i do...
I've got a canon powershot a570, and i can take decent pictures but not many shots that are really great... probably some of that is me though ;)

And i've been noodling getting into semi-professional photography and so i wondered if you have a DSLR, or what?

I feel like the echo of all the comments that have gone before me, but here goes anyway. You know me, I never, EVER get tired of seeing the things you make. I love to see all the BABY ideas. This hat is GREAT, and I, too, think a boy or a girl would just look adorable in it.

BTW, we better get to see ALL the things you have been making!!!
