It isn't nice to fool with Mother Nature

A few days ago, in reviewing WIPs, I made a comment that one of my current projects is for a baby and mom-to-be and that I would have plenty of time to finish it before the baby arrived, unless mother nature played a cruel trick. Do you ever feel like perhaps you've tempted fate?

Yesterday morning I got an email saying that my friend had her baby yesterday morning. Good for her! Not so good for having the gift done.

So last night I did alot of this ...

Sterling was only mildly interested as he got a new one of these...

But by the end of the evening... baby bolero done! I think Mr. Pumpkin does a marvelous modeling job. (And lest you be concerned, this is actually a very small pumpkin, not the big carving size... laugh).

The "small, oh isn't it small and cute" view...

Definitely a good pattern with good yarn, Lion Brand's Organic Cotton. One more baby gift to go... I won't tell you how long I have left to do that one with Mother Nature listening, but I assure you I will be getting started on it right away. =]
