Happy Easter

And thanks for the candy, Bunny. Clearly Mom and Dad need it, especially at 3 am.

The Age of Homespun

Fifth graders across New York State can describe the Age of Homespun as the time in our history when goods were not manufactured but made by hand. I can only hope that mothers of twins back then had friends as great as ours. In addition to all of the delicious food that keeps us going, check out these homespun beauties

Beautiful quilts hand-stitched by Diane Wardlow.  The guys’ names are stitched right in!  Matt and Leo love to rest on their bellies and look at the beautiful colors

Sue Salzman crocheted these soft clouds.  Each is uniquely designed, just like our twins.

The star design of these blankets look great on the stars of our show, thanks to Eileen Selzer.

Moon boots compliments of Aunt Julia. (I happen to know there is a fifth bootie  out there  – it’s fun to learn on the fly!)

Aunt Susie is the heir apparent to a renowned knitting tradition.  The “Netter Sweater ” has a whole new look and matching hats!

And these last two photographs?  Gorgeous, right?  Stay tuned for more, and for many, many touts and kudos to our dear friend Anna Sawin.  Full blog entry to come on her and her talents.  In the meantime, check her out at her website.  She documents our lives so beautifully and we are indebted to her in countless ways.  More on this in entries to come.

In the meantime, much love and thanks to all of the talented baby lovers who have been so generous to us.  Matt & Leo know how much love is held in the stitches.
