Two Down . . . Two To Go

Philip and I had a fun weekend travelling to Anderson, S. C. to visit with friends and enjoy their Kentucky Derby party!! They did it up "right" with mint juleps, lots of roses, and fabulous food and entertainment. I do not claim to be a horse enthusiast, but I have to admit that it was an exciting two minutes . . . I love those "come-from-behind winners"! The weekend was not ALL about horses!! I made my first pair of baby bootees!! I think they are precious and can't wait to make pair #2 for beautiful baby #2. (Did I mention that Ashley and David are expecting twins?) I used a combination of Rowan Milk Cotton DK and Rowan Kidsilk Haze - one strand of each held together. I used Susan B. Anderson's pattern for booties found in her book Itty Bitty Nursery. This book has some really cute baby things . . . I suspect you'll be seeing more of her designs on my blog.

Mrs. Pixie those booties are absolutely ADORABLE! I can't wait to see Ashley and David's beautiful babies. They are lucky to have such a wonderful grandmother!
