happy valentine's day
Thank you all for the well wishes and comments regarding Scarlet. She is a such a joy and we are savoring every moment of these early newborn days with her. I can get so lost just holding her and breathing in her scent. I am lucky enough that Mick has some time off of work to help out esp. with Little M. Although last night he ran off to a meeting and in 50 minutes I managed to help Little M finish dinner, clean up, do the dishes, change and nurse Scarlet, read stories with both of them on my lap and put Little M in bed. Impressive...well to me it was.
For Valentine's Day I made...
Little M some multi-colored crayons from broken up pieces then melted in a baking tray in the oven. Directions here. I wish I had a small heart shape baking pan for these but the circles do nicely as well.
For Scarlet - I started a handknit dress in Manos Del Uruguay Cotton.
Mick and I indulged in some Whitney Smith pottery which you can see up on top. Images from her Etsy shop.
Hope you all have a very sweet Valentine's Day.
