Yesterday, a box came from my friend G. in North Carolina. Inside was this lovely hand-knitted fish, along with a sweet wish for Flynn which will go in her lifebook. You pull the cord, and a tiny music box inside plays a lullaby. I think I'll hang it with a ribbon over the crib.
I love all things handmade, and G is a master knitter and seamstress (she also sewed my gorgeous red and white diaper bag, the one I'm carrying in our LOA picture!) right now the fish is accompanying my handmade stuffed animals in the crib. In this picture, it's occupying the toy bench that my mum and I put together by hand the other day. I like to think of all these loving hands putting together Flynn's world for her, piece by piece.
