It's a girl ... It's a girl blanket!

Hi there dear friends...
I can't believe that almost 10 days have gone by since I have posted... Life is very busy around here. School started, we had all of our closets done so now I can finally take all of our clothes out of boxes and I have been finding a minute here and there to knit a bit and crochet a little.

Our niece K are having a sweet baby girl in November ...we are so excited we can't stand it ... This last Saturday we had a baby shower for her and I have been making a few things for this sweet little girl she is going to have soon.
I made a few burp rugs with crochet edges, a cute little bib and finally a blanket I love to make for all the babies in the family ...
They have chosen the nursery to be yellow and grey, a combination I absolutely love since yellow is one of my favorite colors...
So when I was at the fabric store and found this fabric I knew right away this was going to be the perfect blanket for them.
Perfect yellow, with the right grey. I found a good yellow yarn and designed the crochet edge...
I think it was a perfect combination and I'm very happy with the result and I think Mom-to-be really liked it also ... Now I can't wait to wrap the sweet little girl in the blanket and just give her lots of hugs and loves ...
Babies are so wonderful and sweet ....

Hope you are having a wonderful and sweet week yourself.

I have been visiting your blogs as much as I can and hope you know you make my day so happy when you stop by to "see" me. Thanks for all your wonderful comments.
Lots of love .

River Rocks run through ...

Just a quick post to wish you a wonderful Labor Day Monday if you are celebrating it ...

We usually go camping or somewhere for this long weekend ... This year we had a staycation.
It's been nice ... We got a lot done in the house and tomorrow I plan to relax a little ...

Since we didn't go camping I thought I embellish some of our rocks. This one is a rock my daughter had since she was in kindergarten. She has always loved rocks and she brings and buys them everywhere we go...

I was so happy on how they turned out I think I'm going to make more ... Lots more.

I found the pattern on ravelry : Lacy River Rocks, by Margaret Oomen. Lovely, easy pattern and so satisfying ... In about an hour you have a pretty, door/paper weight. I think I will make some more tomorrow :)

My kids' start school on Tuesday ... Off we go into another school year ...

Thanks for stopping by to "visit" me again ... And have a lovely Labor Day, holiday Monday !

My Ravelry Collection

Hi there friends. 
I have been so busy trying to get the house in order and the kids set up to start school again.
Summer is coming to an end and I can hardly believe school is going to start in one week here for us ... where did the 3 months summer vacation go ???

I have been busy cleaning, unpacking more boxes and getting ready for a new school year. 
My daughter is going to be a Senior this year... and after HS comes to an end ... off to a new path and to college she will be. Independence and all the fun and responsibilities that come with it ...
I knew this day would get here... I'm glad this day got here ... but I can't lie I'm a bit nostalgic about it.
It's just starting now, but sooner than I expect it will be ending and she will be turning a huge new page in her life.
Don't get me wrong I'm very happy and extremely excited for her. The perspectives are for a beautiful future and the dreams are endless. I want her to go explore and live life to the fullest... but I will for sure miss my little girl. Till the day she goes though I'm going to live every second and every moment with her... I'm going to enjoy seeing her grow up to be the smart, beautiful, kind young woman she is becoming ... the young woman I'm so proud of.

Now ... I have been working on several different projects this week, but honestly have not taken any pictures yet because I have been updating my Ravelry account. Since I started my blog I have not even posted one single project on my Ravelry space. I post here and forget that Ravelry can be so very helpful and so fun for so many other people to look at.
So, I decided to go on and start updating my profile and have started with a few pictures of my projects.
While it is still a work in progress I sure made a little progress tonight and here are a few of the pictures I posted there :













wow, after I posted some of the pictures I do have a feeling that shawls, scarves and cowls are my favorite things to knit and crochet ...
I do love the instant gratification that these projects bring to me ...
These are mostly the ones I made for myself and I can honestly say I made at least 50 of them last year... Mostly gifts for family and friends ...
They make me happy and i hope they make somebody happy also...

And if this is the whole purpose of my knitting ... to make somebody happy and make me happy ... I think I will keep on doing it ...

I will leave you with a picture of a wip ... Another one I just started yesterday for my daughter's new year at school ...  Will give you all the details as soon as I finish it.

And life goes on... as happy as we can make it :)

Hope you are having a fabulous week ... and thank you for coming to visit me today, you make me happy.
