Pretty in Pink

Friends of ours just had their first baby, a little girl, and I wanted to dye something for her as a gift. Dharma had lots to offer and I couldn't decide on just one thing, so I ended up batiking and dyeing all three of these:

Our church's preschool is also having a silent auction fundraiser in the not too distant future, and I like to give them a little something, so I dyed another set, but in a larger size, for them. Here's a closeup view of the adorable little hat:


I always like to have some handwork to keep me busy in the evenings. Knitting is a recent obsession, but since C gifted me with the Alabama Stitch Book at Christmas, I've been having fun with a lot of reverse applique. This is a dish towel that I made from two recycled tees that I picked up for 99 cents each at the thrift store:




YES WE CAN!!!

What a lucky baby. If I have another grand baby, I must remember this.

Cute! And I like the reverse applique. Have you seen the things from Guatemala in this technique?
