New Baby Blanket

Hi there friends...

I feel like it has been forever since I was here with you...
My kids are finally done with school and I thought things were going to slow down, but now my daughter is taking driver's Ed and still doing golf and my son is doing golf and will start soccer next week...
So, what was I thinking when I said things were going to slow down when they finished the finals...? we just jump from one thing to another, right ? I think it's just the way it is with this job of being a mom...
I still think it is a lot of fun... ;)
I have managed to start my project ...
Look ...
What do you think it is ??? (now that I have kept you waiting for a whole week)...
Is it a pillow???
Is it a bag???

It's is a baby blanket.

As I mentioned before I have 4 friends having babies in September and October and I loooove making baby things ...

I had a hard time deciding which pattern, but now that I started ...I love it!
So much fun to work on it and I just love making squares because you can take it everywhere...

I was inspired by Pearl Soho's crochet blanket. It's called Whit's Knits: Bear's Rainbow Blanket She has a beautiful blog and a great tutorial ... go check it out if you have a second.

I am doing this one with just one color pallet as my friend is having a baby boy...

I love it !!!

I hope you are all having a marvelous week and I'm so happy you continue to visit me (even when I disappear for a while:))...
Love to you all ! ! !


  1. It is coming along beautifully, Taci! So glad you have a project that is easy to transport through your busy schedule :-). Today I completed a few rows on a dishcloth in the midst of my travels. Xx, Gracie

  2. Being a mum is certainly time consuming but I loved it! Love being a grandma as well!

  5. Yeah Taci! It's beautiful. And as Gracie said, it will be easy to take the squares along with you as you chase after your children. :-)

  11. Ah Taci, Motherhood is never boring or slow is it? Be grateful you have wonderful children that are involved in life. Pretty soon your daughter will be driving and you will have a bit less time with her. I love your baby blanket, really great colors and design.
