I finally made it home late Monday afternoon and have been busy grocery shopping, cleaning and meeting with friends. Not much time for the computer, although I have tried to read your blogs and comment. I hope I've caught up with all of you now. One exciting thing I noticed while at Mandy's was that I've reached 100 followers! How exciting. Read on my friends, and there will be an announcement. Very mysterious aren't I?
So, just before I left home I finished this baby set in light blue.
When I got home I finished the socks for this set in pink and white. I know they'll be going off to a charity or local hospital, I just haven't decided where. Taci, how are you doing with your hats for Brazil? Do you need these?
I had these blankets done up to the squares in the corners before I left home. So I've made 72 of these little square since Monday night. Then I joined them together and crocheted two rounds around each blanket. Those little squares. Goodness. It takes forever to make 72 of them. Join them together and sew in all of the ends. When I know the gender of the baby to recieve each blanket, I'll do a final row in a corresponding color. I always like to have these on hand for baby gifts and as most of you know from reading this blog, I've made literally hundreds of these blankets over the years. The look really wrinkled, but once they're finished I'll wash and dry them and they'll look wrinkle free.
Besides Mandy's slippers and Pipers two pair of socks, I made these 11 dishcloths out of Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Cotton" yarn while I was gone. Dishcloths and socks make great airplane knitting because they don't take up much space or arm movement.
I've ordered gripper soles from Amazon for Mandy's slippers and then I'll mail them back to her. It's supposed to arrive sometime at the end of next week.
One of the last pictures I took of my princess before I left for home. Isn't she a doll? She fed me a green M&M on facetime this morning. Green is her favorite M&M so I am very priviledged that she would share with me. Gosh I miss her hugs and kisses.
Mandy texted me this picture last night. She and Piper only had to get a few items at the grocery store so she let Piper push the little cart around the store for the first time. She said she did very well and stayed right with Mandy and didn't run into anyone. How cute is this? She's growing up way too fast for Grandma.
I had lunch today with my best friend Jenny. We ate at Panda Express which we both enjoy. As we ordered, we both chose the same items. Isn't that funny? It was really good and we had a nice chat before she had to get back to work.
It's feeling much like spring today. 68 degees! So nice and I'm enjoying it after the cold the past few weeks. It is supposed to rain all weekend and I really hope it does. Everything is so dry and our snowpack is non-existent.
And now, to celebrate all of you lovely followers. All you have to do is leave a comment and I will draw two names and each will recieve a gift from me. I can't wait to hear from you all. I will draw the names and announce the winners on Wednesday March 18. I am so grateful to each and everyone of you for taking the time to read my little blog. I have made some wonderful friends through this and I so appreciate each one of you.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week and enjoy the weekend to come.
"I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope. Psalm 130:5
Amen and Amen.
Blessings my friends,
