Look what I bought!

A friend of mine is due with twins in September and, of course, I wanted to get her a special gift that wouldn't be like all the other baby gifts she would receive. In my Etsy search, I discovered Arrets Place - a wonderful little shop that carries reversible baby afghans, beautifully crocheted baby sweaters along with adult items such as crocheted wraps and hats (among lots of other things).

Since I wanted coordinating sweaters, I asked Arrets Place for a special order. Not only was she willing to make the sweaters, but she also searched for the cutest buttons she could find - note the trucks on the blue and the little cupcake buttons on the pink - they are absolutely adorable!

The workmanship is also excellent. Both items are wonderfully soft and the colors are perfect - I didn't really want the typical baby pastel colors and these worked out wonderfully. I can't wait to give them just to hear the oohs and aahhs!

On a completely different note, my peonies (see post below) have bloomed and, as promised, I took some pictures.

I am so tickled that you are showing my handiwork. I loved making those sweaters for you and I'm sure your friend will be absolutely thrilled getting them.

I appreciate all your wonderful words about my shop and hope your friends will be pleased when they stop to take a look.

Thanks again.
