Handmade goodies for the baby

When I was a baby my grandmother made me a handmade blankie that I still have today, it has been resorted twice but it is something that I keep dear to my heart. It is tucked away in my closet, but the thing that makes it so special is it was hand made for me. As it is almost time for our new baby to come into this world, I wanted to share some of the handmade items that were made for him.

I just finished this painting yesterday that I drew for the baby, this is not my typical style but I think it will go well in his room.
Luna Leda made this special blankie, and if you know Luna you know this is not her gig, but she spent many hours, sometimes in the wee hours of the night to get this blankie finished. She said there were times when she would ask her mother to help guild her in the making of this blanket. My grandmothers spirit lives on.
Aunt Ling made this special safari blanket that is just so soft.
Aunt Katie made this very colorful and playful blanket with a special soft cube toy that the baby can play with as he gets older.

Miss Jody T. made this oh so multi colored blankie and it even has a swan on it. She also had her crafty uncle make a Canadian sock monkey.

Jen Jen made this cute blanket with needle work all wrapped around.

Doretta made this plush blanket that will be sure to keep him warm this winter.

James old neighbors Karen & Dave crocheted this soft blue blankie.

Joann a good friend of the Millers made all sorts of cool and useful goodies including a body bib and changing pad. All the things that will come in handy.
