Madelyn Rose's Blanket

Making baby blankets is something I enjoy crocheting a lot. So, when I found out that this year we have two new granddaughters joining our family in May, I  got to work choosing yarn and patterns.

 This is the first blanket I finished and it is for Madelyn Rose due May 4.

 I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn. The color is "Fruity".  I love how the color of this blanket is happy and fun.

I used a new stitch and it is now my favorite! It is called the half-double crochet stitch. 

I also crocheted a baby wash cloth to go with the little package I made up. Now, it is ready to be mailed off to Texas and I can't wait for  Danielle and Josue to see it!

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
