The Sweater Lady Strikes Again

I came to work this morning, only to find out the former patient who made me the BEAUTIFUL pink sweater and hat had struck again. She made me more goodies and wanted to deliver them so she stopped by for a visit this morning with my mom, who had helped her when she was with us. Back then, they had started talking about family and mom told her she was waiting for her first granddaughter, who would also be from China. Marsha immediately made the magnificent pink sweater set and gave it to mom the next morning. She was discharged the next day and promised to come back and visit and the pictures are what she brought with her. What you can't see in the pictures is the amazing detail. The peach/yellow sweater is short sleeved and just the softest thing. The purple has a satin ribbon tie and small lavender silk flowers weaved into the hood. The multi color one, is turquoise and HOT pink (it looks red in the photos) and has turquoise flower shaped buttons down the front. Mind you, it takes her all of a few hours to make each creation. She was just signed to do some one of a kind pieces for Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue. Thanks Marsha!!!!!

Those are cool and super trendy these days. I just love how hand-made they are. I want the blue one in my size.

Nic,
The coolest part is that she whips them up in 3 or 4 hours. She's very talented and says she's making more once we know the baby's size. I am partial to blue one too because it's funky. I also love the original pink one and this new purple one with the silk flowers in the hood.
