Over the weekend, I visited my good friend who has 3 week old twins. She usually lives in Alaska, but is here until after Christmas. I brought them some little knitted socks and taggie blankets. Whenever little Buddha is a handful, I just think about having 2 handfuls. Then you have no more hands!
They invited us to their son's 2nd birthday party this weekend (yes, newborn twins and an almost 2 year old! - talk about no hands). He loves to touch the satin edging on blankets so I made him a little taggie blanket of his own. It has a moose flannel, fake suede, little ribbons and then satin pockets that are perfect for little fingers.
I haven't sewed in a while and forgot how much I enjoy it, yet am rather skill-less at it. I make things that must be used and not examined too closely. I have never understood the quilt show quilts that take years to make and have to be handled with white gloves (yes, I saw this at a quilt show). Use it or lose it is my motto with most things.
