I stole this idea from Pink Trees since I needed a gift for a 1-year-old. It was my godson Lincoln's (cutie at left with his godfather) birthday party on Saturday, so I made him this stuffed felt pea and little bag from a polka dotted sheet to go with the book. I made an extra for Sam! (I was home recovering from oral surgery: the insertion of a steel rod in my jawbone, getting ready for the implant. The sedative knocked me out for the whole day.)
At the birthday party, these two adorable kids--my friend Karen and Jeff's twins from Ethiopia--came in wearing the sweaters I had knit for them before they adopted. Aren't they adorable?! The sweaters actually fit, too.
Later that night we went to see our neighbor Reggie's band at a dive bar in Chicago. They're sounding better and better every time I see them! Also ran into someone I knew from yoga there. I love it when Chicago is such a small town. Our third Saturday night social event was a little get-together for our friend Christian's birthday. Whew! I haven't been that social in a long time. So I slept in Sunday morning, too. Felt good to be lazy on a rainy day.
