Hello again!
I just had to tell you...I went on ebay and was able to get this pattern for $1.04! Can you believe it? I can hardly wait to get it so I can start on this for my niece's new baby...thanks again for the inspiration!

Dear Lady Farmer,

Aw, that is simply beautiful! I wish I had some time to sew something sweet for Rebecca (good thing we have a few pretty "leftovers" from Evangeline).
