At one of my baby showers the party activity was onesie decorating. I was extremely impressed by everyone's artistic talent, which was much greater than my own! But a few weeks after the party I got a belated addition to this outstanding onesie collection from my friend and fellow banjo teacher Ned Luberecki. I had to declare it the most awesome onesie in the entire history of onesies. See the below and I think you'll agree:
In case you don't recognize what's in the middle of that Ghostbusters-like red circle (because I KNOW none of you have ever seen, much less USED it 🙂 ), it is tablature (forward rolls...).
There were tons of other cute ones, but I'll limit myself to posting the bluegrass-related ones. The runners-up in the awesome onesie contest were these:
I told Kelley (the gracious party hostess) that she could produce these and sell them to numerous bluegrass parents/grandparents!
Connie is the clawhammer player for our informal and sporadic jam group At Least We're Hot. I was super impressed that the baby actually looks like a baby and you can totally tell he's crawling on the banjo head!
Rebecca (flatpicker extraordinaire) was super helpful to me in assembling my baby registry list. (Note the "H" on the peghead.)
Missy is married to Sim Daley, who makes mandolins, and she also threw in a little shout-out to Megan Lynch, whose FiddleStar logo you see there. Megan couldn't make the shower because she was hosting a kids fiddle camp at her house.
I can pretty much guarantee that you'll see more pictures of these outfits, occupied by a bouncing baby boy, at some point in the not-too-distant future, so stay tuned!
