Bower Birds



Bower Birds by Robynn Weldon, knit using leftover Nanne Kennedy Seacolors, mostly, and also whatever else I had lying around. An excellent use of scraps!

HOWEVER. The picture illustrates a serious problem--it is about five minutes away from not fitting her anymore.

I made it for her birthday! It fit three months ago!

Look at how she stares at the hourglass (well, minuteglass). Look at how the sun bathes her in an angelic blessing. Look at how short it is.

Folks, I didn't even have her pose for this photo. I asked her if I could take a picture of her before she outgrew the dress, and this is the stance and prop she chose.

Time, people. It's a-flying. And she wants to make sure I know it.

How lovely to hear from you again and how beautiful Willow has grown. She's definitely not a baby anymore. The dress is really cute and she's young enough to get away with it being kind of short. If you celebrate it, I hope you all have a blessed Easter.

Thank you! Yes, we're going up to Massachusetts to hunt eggs with cousins and there will be general frolicking! Maybe I can get her to wear this dress again before it's a shirt!

xo and best wishes for your Easter as well...
