I don't know if any of you are aware of this or not, but this a second marriage for both J.D. and I. When we took our wedding vows on April 2nd, 2000 not only did we join our lives, but 4 and 3 children became 7..... 7 and 4 grandchildren became 11 and since then has grown to be 13...... We have also seen 4 great grandchildren come into this world. Recently we received word that those 'Rebel' grandchildren have been at it again and the end of May we will be welcoming another great grandchild into the world. We are so happy for Butch, Alaina and Audrey. I might mention that I am right on top of things. Since receiving the good news, I found a pattern for this pretty Heart Baby Blanket , got my supplies gathered up and already have it on needles and in progress.
It is proving to be a very easy pattern to knit. The only difficult part of it all is that I have to stay focused on what I am doing and do a lot of counting other wise it is going to be rip it out and start over. Can you make out the little heart pattern in the blanket..... I Love It! Hopefully this project won't prove to be like the crib quilts that I cross stitched for Riley and Seth. There was a lot of talk behind hands and into ears that they would maybe get their quilts by the time they started to school, graduated, got married...... etc. Well they got them long before any of those events, just not when they first came home from the hospital. I also want to make the new baby's big sister, Audrey something to include in the box when the baby gets his blanket. We are excited and looking forward to this new arrival.
I have had other things in the works as well. Right around New Years I knitted some fetchings for T-Bear. I bought more yarn then was needed so with my left overs I made her a scarf to go with them.
And then before Christmas I had made her a shrug that just did not fit her and she felt so bad about it. Not so much that it didn't fit, but more because I had put so much time into crocheting it for her. She is such a "SWEETY". To make up for it, I am in the process of making her a granny square poncho.
I figure it will be difficult for even me to mess that one up. I will take a picture of the finished product when I get it put together.
Good news in our part of the world, it is supposed to start warming up today..... Doing 'Happy Dance' here. Have a Great Weekend!
