Sorry that it has been so long since I updated. I had no intention of leaving that post up for so long. As per usual life got in the way. Things have been extremely busy around here the last couple of days and there is no way of knowing if it is going to slow down anytime soon. Today Ryan and I are trying to get the house clean and the yards clean just to maintain them so that if we should have something come up we don’t have to scramble. We have just been too busy lately to take chances. We are also washing the van and getting it ready to sell. We would like to get it into the paper by tomorrow so we are working on that.
Ryan goes back to work tomorrow, so life might, just might stop being quite as busy and go back to something a bit more normal. We shall see……
So you want to see some pictures?
I have told you guys before that I crochet. Well I am the only one in my family in the age group I’m in that has a craft like this. So I started getting a few requests here and there. So now I always make baby blankets instead of buying gifts for baby showers. I love doing it and it is neat for my blankets to be a gift for everyone in this next generation.
Weird to think that one of these days some little girl is going to ask her mom where she got that ugly blanket and she’s going to reply, ‘Well you know old Mrs. Laube at the church? She made that for me when I was a baby.” Weird huh? Anyway. These aren”t the greatest pictures but I thought I would share with you guys what it is I do.
This first blanket is for my cousin Zachary who was born about six weeks ago. I just haven’t seen his mom yet. So Cindy if your reading, this this one is yours. Sorry it’s folded down it was too big to spread all out. Just so the rest of you know the room is decorated in little red airplanes. Too cute.
This one is the winter blanket for my cousin Kallie’s new little girl who is due in July.
This one is the summer blanket for the same little girl. I am currently working on it and just so you know the picture makes it look funny but it is a pale baby pink and snow white.
This is my drawer of yarn for the next two. The puffy stuff is for the winter blanket and the thin for the summer blanket. These blankets will go to my best friend Emily’s little sister Mary and her baby boy who is due in late September.
After I’m done with those there will be another set for Emily’s older sister Sarah and her baby boy due October 3rd and then two more for Remy’s little boy due October 8th. So you can see what I’ve been doing lately. If I’m not around much I’m probably working on these. The scary part is pretty much all of them have to be done by September 1st since baby showers are a month ahead of the due date. I’m going to be super busy. LOL
Well I’m off to help Ryan finish up and start working on this stuff. Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. I will try to come back soon.
