Thank you, Diane!

Today I received another package from Diane in Ohio. Such delightful things!
I just adore Diane's quilted grab balls. These are so perfect for tiny baby hands, and the mix of colors is delightful. Diane also sent some of the most adorable booties in all baby sizes, and 2 gorgeous knit baby ponchos!

In addition to her handmade pieces, Diane sent 3 books for the kids.

Thank you so much, Diane, for your beautiful donations and for your generosity!

Some things that I made for MCK

These are a few blankets and washcloths that I made for the kids.

I wasn't able to craft as much as I might have liked this summer, and I'm having so much fun making things again!

The blue/green blanket was woven on my new rigid heddle loom. The two fleece blankets were edged using my Edgerydoo, and the washcloths were made using traditional and Tunisian crochet.

Other Goodies from Gailya

In addition to the bags and blankets, Gailya send these lovely items! The photos don't do them justice. The light pink set is just adorable! It's knit in a very pretty design and includes a winter cap and cute booties. The bright pink booties were sewn and are beyond adorable.

The other photo shows just a few of the bottle cozies that Gailya knitted. These are great to cover baby's bottle.

Thank you, Gailya for all these gifts and for all you do for others!
