31:40: Pretty Handmade Things

I have zero ability when it comes to anything crafty. Sewing, knitting, crocheting, stitching...it all fails me. But I'm lucky to have very talented friends and family who have bestowed beautiful handmade gifts upon Miss L.E.

From L.E.'s godmother, who is so unbelievably talented. This quilt made me bawl at my baby shower.
A sweater-poncho from T's aunt. She only has grandsons so L.E. has become her de-facto granddaughter.

Another quilt, an "activist" quilt from our friends in Austin, TX.



A tutu, also from L.E.'s godmother.

OK, so this isn't actually L.E.'s, it's mine. A Wifit doll also made by the extremely talented godmother.

Sweater and hat set from my parents' friend.

Cupcake headband from my dear friend. You can own one, too! Visit etsy.com/shop/youcute

Handmade book cover for L.E.'s baby book. Made by a great friend and co-worker.

She also made this bejeweled silver spoon.

As you can see, none of these things came from my side of the family. Maybe we should work on that.
