A baby boom this summer!

We are still awaiting the arrival of all these babies, but I have still been working on their gifts.

Here are some of them. I've been an embroidery nut while my mom has been here to help with the kids and the house. Here I embroidered a bib and a hat for each baby. I embroidered animals on the bibs and then I embroidered the first letter of the babies' names on the hats.

I am working on two more different baby gifts at the moment, but I am still far behind the curve on gifts I need to make, ranging from birthday gifts to graduation gifts. I have a super fun idea actually, involving embroidery. However, I don't know when I will get to it. I was inspired from this wonderful mom and want to make saint dolls in the same fashion as her angel dolls. A friend of mine wants to get together to make saint t-shirts too. Wouldn't this be a great way to encourage our little ones to learn about the saints?

That is a fabulous idea. Sadly, I have misplaced the angel doll pattern so if I get a chance to make a saint doll, I'll be sure to share it with you. I'd love to see what you come up with to.

And can I just tell you how beautiful your children are. Wow! Absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you so much, Charotte! I wish wish wish I had more time to do all the projects I have going in my head, but with the three little ones and my husband gone for the year, sadly I must pace myself.

Your kids are precious to, by the way! And I love your blog!

I remember a time like that. You just spend every minute you can enjoying those precious little ones because they grow up so fast. Your inspiration really spoke to my heart so I wanted to say, "Thank you!" and may God bless your husband while he is away and the family that eagerly awaits his return!
