Mittens is three weeks old today! She’s having longer waking periods and the children continue to enjoy her immensely. She’s still a little peanut and she’s going to look quite small at her baptism! Speaking of which, it will be on February 20th at 4 PM, for those who can come. I have a lot to do to get ready in the next week.
We celebrated Flopsy’s birthday on the 6th. She wanted cheesecake so all I had to do was put candles in them. We decorated in a slightly more elegant manner this time. She loves all things French and got several books to help inspire her dollhouse decorating. I’ll have to do a separate post on her miniatures and dollhouses. They’re quite extraordinary.
I’ve kept to the house for the most part so it was a pleasure to have a few friends drop by last Sunday after church!
Ribby is a much more adventurous knitter than am I and has made her first pair of full-size socks for herself. I think they turned out quite well! She had asked for sock yarn for Christmas and got a LOT.
I have spent a lot of time resting and recovering from surgery this time around. One of the things I have done to keep occupied is making tiny hats to send to my friend Michelle at Common Care. I have a batch of thirty ready to mail today. There are many requests for very small hats so I concentrated on making those.
