done and done...
Projects finishing up. Above, a onesie that I've waited months to finish and give. Actually, it worked out that I didn't finish it until recently. The embroidery was all done, but it needed to be stitched onto the shirt. Well, I'm glad I waited, because by the time I was able to see little Lydia, I needed a bigger shirt!
Below, a detail of the family tree I made for my parents' anniversary. Watercolor like this isn't really something that I do, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Parts of it I like (such as the trunk with my parents' names "carved"), parts of it could use some work (the willow leaves weren't working, so I went much more impressionistic than I planned). I still had fun making it. And because all six of us are still just us without spouses (not surprising for the 3-year-old, more so for the 28-year-old), I opted to make this very non-traditional (but with room to add in names to go with those of us already there).
