Nora Caitlyn's Blanket

When I found out this winter that two new granddaughters joining our family in May, I got busy looking at yarns and patterns. I couldn't wait to get started. This is the second blanket I made and it is for baby Nora.

This blanket was more of a challenge as the pattern was a little more complicated. It has the look of a granny square stitch but it is done in a straight line. Hence, the name "Granny Stripe".

I watched a few videos and made some practice runs before I really got the hang of it. But, once I did, I was off to the races! 

Again, as with the other blanket I made for Madelyn, I used Lion Brand Tweed Stripes. I love tweed and I do like the look the yarn gives to a blanket. The color of the yarn is "Luau".

I made another baby wash cloth with some of the cotton yarn I have in my stash and made up another little package. Under the wash cloth is a cute hand towel that says, "Somebunny Loves You" with a bunny face on front. It was really made for Easter but I thought it made a cute addition to my baby girl package. 

Next on my list will be a couple of quick projects for these little bundle of joys due in May.

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
