Flowers and Babies.....

First let me show you what tulips will do.......

Did you know they would grow after they are cut???
I sure didn't.....but according to the instructions that came with them.....they will.......and look........they did!! This is the second day I have had them.....cut an inch off both days and you can see the blooms are above the leaves now......learn something new every day......

now for Babies.....
...a Darling little girl just entered our family this past month......and according to tradition I sent her a ring. This is something my Mom always did and so I continue on in her name. But I had the itch to knit something for her as well..... Of course I forgot to take pictures before sealing the box......but her Mom came through for me.....so here is Cadence in her hat and booties knitted by her "Great (??) Aunt" Alice.......
The pattern is called Ruffles for Kate by a designer I found on Ravelry.


You can find it here....
I used the suggested size needles and Bernat Baby Yarn....they really were fun to knit and know I will be doing this pattern again and again.....
Her Mom ....Jennifer.....also has a blog with more pictures and the "rest of the story".......and if I knew how to 'embed' the addy I would so here it is the old fashion way until I learn better......
and since I began with flowers.....
....I will end with the flowers the Best Ever Husband gave me today........
