we're all for sick days. only without the sick part. -Dayquil commercial

I've designated today as knitting day, because I'm sick and it sucks! My mama rescued me and took Jasmine out for a day of shopping (Target), lunching in a fine restaurant (local Thai food), and playing in the park so I may rest. I have a bunch of work to do and I'm stuck in bed with only half my brain functioning (the other half is trapped in the congestion). However, I did manage to roll myself out of bed and get some nice pictures of my finished Oat Couture Victorian T-Shirt.

This little sweater is for my sister's first baby who lives in Prague, CZ. My parents are headed over there next month to go visit her sweet lil' new addition to the family. I hope she likes it!

Here's the sweater:



Here's the adorable, vintage-looking buttons I bought for the sweater when I was in Victoria:



And, this is how it's all packaged up in a hand-sewn bag with a handmade tag and a lavendar satchet (which is also handmade but not by me).



Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and are not sick like me!

Oh, I am so sorry you are sick. I'm knitting all day today and tomorrow - it's the Masters. I always watch it and knit during it.

That is a cute, cute little baby outfit!

That is so sweet and adorable! Luv the details and packaging as well. Sweet of your mom to rescue you. My daughter was so ill for 3 days this week, still kind of recovering but off to the movie now with boyfriend and friends. Now i am afraid it's my turn, after spending all day out in the cold damp wind having a yard sale i cannot get warm, but head so hot... oh well, pass it on i guess! smile feel better! (lol, when reading i wondered if your mom brought you some good tom yum soup! perfect for a cold!)

Thank you, everyone for the well wishes and the sweet compliments.

Turtle - They actually decided to go to Red Robin's instead, so no Thai soup for me. That would have been nice though. :)

Elly - The tags are from Michael's. If I remember correctly, they are Martha Stewart brand, and the stamp I bought from Etsy seller lovetocreatestamps.etsy.com

Have a nice weekend everyone. :)
