The Greatest of the Great

My Great-Aunt Val definitely lives up to her name. That is to say, she is great. Really great. She knitted beautiful green and yellow blankets, hats, booties and sweaters for Zoey and Eleanor before they were born. She has now done it again for the new baby.

Just looking at these beautiful items makes me want to “squeee!!!” Each handmade item has so much detail, so much time and love put into it.

As if all the purple and white sweetness wasn’t enough, Aunt Val also knitted a second outfit for the baby. An adorable blue-green sweater with tiny buttons and matching pants.

The icing on the cake? She also sent along a handmade baby doll with diaper and blanket for Zoey, a bear for Eleanor and a nurse doll for me (that looks a lot like my mom).

I’m pretty much on cuteness overload about now. I imagine you are too. You’re welcome.
