My goddaughter (and third godchild!) was born on Sunday evening! :-) Isn't she gorgeous? :-)
Mi ahijda nació el domingo por la noche! :-) A que es guapísima? :-)

I finished her little sleeping bag on Monday:
Terminé su saquito de dormir el lunes:

I had already sent my friend the largest of the three mini-suitcases as a "Hospital kit" so I decided to use the smallest to send the sleeping bag. I hope to bring her the medium-sized suitcase myself when I go to visit, packed with the other things I have made and bought.
Ya le había mandado la maletita más grande de las tres, así que esta vez decidí mandarle el saquito en la maletita más pequeña. Espero poder llevarle la mediana yo misma, llena de las demás cosas que estoy haciendo y que he comprado, cuando vaya a visitar a mi ahijada.

I'm going to have to take a temporary break from goddaughter-knitting though because another friend had a little boy yesterday and my cousin should give birth to her little boy this week too, so there's lots of knitting to be done!
Voy a tener que dejar de lado lo que estoy haciendo para mi ahijada durante un ratito ya que ayer otra amiga tuvo a un niño y esta misma semana mi prima también deberá dar a luz a su niño, así que tengo mucho que tejer!

Hospital Kit

One of my very best friends has asked me to be her daughter's Godmother. The baby is due tomorrow, so last week I sent off a "first days" kit to take into hospital with her. It contained:

A tiny 100% wool cardigan

Tiny bootees to keep her feet warm:

And my personal favourite, a classic bonnet to keep the baby's ears warm on her way home from hospital:

It also contained a tiny pijama:

A cuddly toy:

And a blanket:

I sent it all off in a small ribbon-tied suitcase, which my friend can later use to decorate the nursery or to keep teh baby's soft toys in, her socks, etc.
