baby girl dreaming

well, a baby is a baby. and i'm pretty sure you can make as many things for a boy as you can for a girl. i did not have any hopes or dreams connected to the gender of our little junebaby. but we found out last week that it looks like we're having a girl, and after the news settled a little, the dreaming began. oh, the dresses and skirts and headbands and everything else pretty to be made!

i ordered some of anna maria horner's folksy flannel yesterday, the little honey sea print and some yellow flannel, to make a light but still soft and cozy baby blanket. it will be similar to the one pictured above, which i made for spencer when i was pregnant with him. only he was a november baby so i made the backing with warm cotton fleece.

i love the little honey sea print because it has flowers and kind of a girly look, but it's still quite a neutral colour scheme (i am not so much a fan of pinks...)

knitting wise, i'm sure i need to cast on a little sister's dress, don't you think?

and browsing through my photo archives, i happily discovered many favourite pieces safely stored in the attic that i will just love to put on the new little one some day:



oh yes, the possibilities! (just loved the picture on this vintage sewing pattern found here.)

Oh Sylvia, Congratulations! It's good for a Momma to have a little girl [although those boy's are pretty special too :) ]

Congratulations on your exciting news! I've had two girls and one boy and I hate to say it, but in regards to crafty things, its a lot more fun for girls. Happing making! xx

Congrats on the news! My husband and I had the same attitude when we tried for our third (due any day). We have two boys and would have been fine with three, but decorating and prepping for a girl is fun, too. From a creative and a personal standpoint, I feel blessed to be able to experience both!

the little hat box that would always hold spencer's clothes till i got to give them to you is already full with a few things for him and a LOT of things for her... :) i found the sweetest little knit overall - you'll LOVE it!

Congratulations! Oh what a happy thing it is to sew (or knit) for a little baby on the way! I also am not a big fan of everything pink for a baby girl. I'm following you now and will look forward to seeing all you create. :-)

How exciting for you! It's nice to have more options when making/crafting for your little ones, and having one of each definitely opens up possibilities. Congrats Sylvia! xx
