Selena's presents (Sneak Peak)

I am an Auntie again.  My darling new niece, Selena Willow Rosenveld, was born this morning.  I am sad that I can't be in Queensland to give her new baby cuddles.  Newborns are so special.  It has actually been a lovely thing to share in my sister's first pregnancy.

We are so different, my sister and I.  As children we were not all that close.  As teenagers we were downright hateful, and hurtful, to each other.  As we "matured" we have grown closer and I can honestly say that I now know just how special it is to have a sister.  I see my two girls together, how smitten they are with each other, and I hope that they will always know the special bond of sisterhood.

Today I am not focussed on much at all, just thinking about my sis and her gorgeous newborn.


I hope to have pictures to share, but until I do here are a few of Selena's first presents from us (KAZ LOOK AWAY NOW!!!)

Selena shares a birthday with my dear friend Naomi (which is why Dan has chocolate all over his face - he was licking the bowl from the birthday cake we are taking to Mum's group!)  No pastel baby pinks for my sister.  She has decorated Selena's room in a jungle theme.This is the little dress made from the "stained glass" sock yarn (wool/silk mix) that I got through kathysfibres.com  The pattern is from Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders.  It was just a dream project to knit (thoroughly enjoyable and so quick - I relished every stitch!)  Can't wait to see little Selena in this!

I'm off to help Hannah's class make Easter cards (bunnies from my Creative Memories punches)
Happy Tuesday (and welcome to the world Selena sweetie!)
Keep smiling,
Nell
