The irony? By the time I had my own baby, she had quit knitting and my own child never had the pleasure of wearing a sweater knit by granny. I still have the pattern she used to use, but haven't made one myself. Someday.....
I have my own tradition, started many years back now. If I know you and you're having a baby....you get an I Spy quilt. Smidgie was given one by a couple of quilting friends, and she still sleeps with it regularly.
So, I present to you #5in2015 fibre projects..... an I Spy quilt for a classmate of mine expecting in October. Yes, it's shocking, I've completed it with much time to spare. That's because there are two more in the pipeline required for September. Logic seems backwards, I assure you it's not.
Behold, the I Spy for Baby I.
Can' wait until you arrive, Baby I!
