This just in from the west coast: niece in a Mason-Dixon Moses Basket, five years later.
Such a darling photo. Feeling the urge to knit the Moses Basket liner – know of no such need.
Audible gasp, smile, and melted heart from Maine.
Yup. This took my breath away with its sweetness.
What a sweet picture.
Would that we could all have such peaceful moments!
I am SLAIN by the cuteness. DEAD I tell you.
Can someone check on Anna? Apparently, she’s dead and her computer is malfunctioning.
But seriously, that picture makes my ovaries hurt.
There’s nothing like a basket with a baby in it, is there? She’s like a tiny fairy asleep in the garden under a cabbage leaf! So cute. My son Max used to curl up in the laundry like that. He’ll be thirty this June. Still cute!
Proof that a Classic is good forever.
Apparently, Anna and I have similar issues.
whoa, the sweetness & cuteness is breathtaking. Is there a better tribute to handmade?
The projects in your and Kay’s books make MAGIC that lasts forever. Felted boxes, Moses basket– magic. And thank you for that. XOXO
That is so cute I want to throw up!
Absolutely adorable! Agree with others that I feel the need to run off and knit one, when there is no “need” — now, anyways!
Pretty hard to top knowing you have knit a cocoon of comfort for someone. Of course, that child will be deeply chagrined when that photo is shown at her graduation/wedding reception, at least on the outside.
Aaaakkk — those little toes, those perfect little legs, and the thumb in the mouth, all curled up in a sleep snuggle! Tears in the eyes…
That picture makes me think of a little older version of an Anne Geddes photograph.
Way too cute! You should be proud!
fairy tales can can true if you are young in
heart may she always be young in heart
Touches the heart….blessings abound.
Just as sweet as can be.
That is teeth achingly sweet. What a great picture. Thank you for sharing!
I didn’t have a Moses basket for my baby, thinking he would grow out of it too quickly (he was too long for one of those infant car seats by the time he was 3 months old). Now 7 years old, he still manages to fold his body to squeeze into improbably-sized boxes! What is it about young children and cats and their love of snug spaces?
What a great photo. Sweet little angel in a Moses blanket/basket. I love it!
