~More Baby Gifts XO~

 Remember the gifts I couldn't show you, because we hadn't had the baby shower yet (in the post below) well the shower was this last Saturday Oct. 16 for my niece Katie Marie. Katie Marie and  Francisco are having a boy who's name will be "Makai".
Makai is due to arrive on Dec. 24 what a precious Christmas gift so of course he had to have a Santa hat and a blue blanket.

 The blanket is crocheted and the hat knitted.
   For this blanket I used flannel and crocheted the trim. I used 2yards of fabric,  1 yard for each side.


A little knitted hat.

And a knitted sweater to keep the little guy warm and cozy.

 I also made a crib size blanket for Makai so he can cuddle up with his Mommy and Daddy and watch baseball games together. 
 Bernadette my youngest daughter crocheted this sweet blanket for her cousin Katie Marie, its just as sweet as can be.
This is Katie Marie the little Mama.

 Katie Marie  is a beautiful girl with a kind and loving heart of gold. Her smile can light up a room. Her Great Grandma called her "sunshine" and she is full of sunshine! She has been blessed!
LIFE is BEAUTIFUL and a Miracle!

You make the loveliest things, Elizabeth! I love all of those precious gifts! Your niece is so beautiful, she is one of the lucky ones that really glows when she is pregnant.
Are those the curtains in the kitchen that you made recently? They are lovely and do look so much better than the others did. I want to see more of them, though. Pretty please? :)With a smile on top?
Hugs, Cindy

Hi Elizabeth,

I just can't get over the sweetness of these handmade treasures. I was actually so inspired by your last post that I started to crochet a blanket over the weekend. Alas, I am pretty much self-taught as a lefty, and so it will be nothing as amazing as your work. Just a giganto granny-square!

Hugs,

Dena

Well, little Makai is a blessed little one and he isn't even here yet. What a lot of beautiful gifts filled with love.
Loved the little tag on the denium side of the flanel blanket. I haven't seen the crocheted trim like that before. Just love it too.
You have been busy for this little one.
