The past returns

Today I am meeting a Flickr friend for lunch.  She is young enough to almost be my granddaughter ('course I would have had to be a teenage bride, I suppose.)  Anyway, my friend is going to have a baby in May (I think, it's May??)  Now, how could I possibly go to lunch knowing that without a gift?  Luckily, I have a closet upstairs that is filled to the brim with girls clothes that I made for years.....but not since August 2008 when I started quilting.  And, luckily, she is having a girl.  Awwww.......how convenient, huh?  I hope she'll like it:

Teeny Tiny

It amazes me that I used to do such teeny tiny hand embroidery:

Hand Embroidery

In today's world, this mug rug is more my style:

Have a Happy Day! 

Have a happy day, friends!  And a happy weekend too.................

Oh Carol that little Angel top is so sweet, and the embroidery beautiful, but I think you must make a little smocked dress for this baby when she arrives.....no pressure though.

Susan said...

Gosh - what a contrast between the baby outfit and your work these days. Its very pretty and will look delightful on a little baby.

Natalya H said...

She would be crazy not to love this!!! This absolutely adorable!

Elaine said...

Carol, you know I LOVE the outfit and it is so special to me! I can't believe all the tiny details and honestly wish that baby was coming a bit later so that this could be her coming home outfit. We'll have another lunch date when it fits her so that you can see her in it in person!

Hugs,

How cutsie! I thought that was what embroidery was...tiny stitching. Maybe I don't do the right kind of embroidery. Froggie is so funny!
