Yesterday my best friend was in town from Wisconsin. It was great to see her and her family, even though our visit was short. I just wish her circumstances for coming to town were different.
She called me Friday night to let me know they'd be in Monday, which gave me just enough time to make this...
(Look at me! I was productive!)
This is a gift for her son's first birthday later this month. I totally saved shipping charges by getting it done now.
Speaking of her son...
Isn't he the cutest cubbycheekerssnugglybumpkins you've ever seen? I consider him my nephew (my friends are the closest I'll ever get to having siblings, and my best friend and I have been friends for more than half our lives). He's holding the first baby blanket I ever made (a "graduation gift" of getting discharged from the NICU; he was born three months too early). And it's his wubbie. And he throws a fit when it gets washed. So, of course, I had to make him another for his birthday.
I simply can't have my baby throwing fits, now can I?
(And my friend's hair? Is naturally that red and that curly. If she wasn't such a wonderful person, I might have to hate her.)
