Finished the baby blanket

Hi there friends.
This has been such a busy time in our lives I sometimes am worried life is going to pass me by ...

I'm still trying to enjoy each moment and not take any day or minute for granted. I'm blessed beyond believe and I'm grateful.
However, the only thing I really wish I had a little bit more is exactly what I cannot have ...
... T. I. M. E. ...

I feel like the more I do ... The more there is for me to do... But I know I'm not alone... There are hundreds of other working moms out there that share the same feelings I do.
For now I just want you to know our house is in the final stages of getting ready and we are hopefully moving in about a month... We are super busy.

So if I haven't popped in here very often it is because I'm starting to pack, still choosing some of the things to go in the house, working, taking care of the kids ( who thank God are now pretty independent teenagers) and trying when I have a few minutes to keep crocheting and knitting...

I have actually almost finished the Japanese flower blanket ( working on trying to crochet an edge but couldn't find a Japanese flower blanket with an edge anywhere) and starting another blanket for my niece who graduates from HS this summer( yes, call me crazy).

So.... Hope you understand that it's not I don't want to be here... I miss you all and I keep trying to pop my head at your blogs and visit you all as often as I can... I'm just a little busier than I anticipated ... But I'm sure things will get back to normal and our lives will take shape very soon.

Thanks for staying with me and for all your visits ... I appreciate all of you so very much !!!

Before you go take a look at the cute little blanket and hat I finally finished and took it to my friend today...the baby's gramma... I can't wait to see a picture of her all bundled up with her new blanket and hat :)

Have a wonderful rest of your week :)


  1. Very pretty set. I understand your situation all to well. Wishing you a smooth process as you pack up your things and prepare to move into your beautiful new home. Heather

  2. A very sweet set Taci! :)

  3. what a beautiful blanket! I like your use of both fabric and crochet along the edges. It looks lovely and I am sure the baby will look adorable all wrapped up in it!
    Take care,

  4. Oh Taci that blanket and hat are so cute! AND my favorite color. :-) I'm so happy that you will soon be in your new home and getting settled. This has been a challenging time for your family but you, my dear, have handled it with your usual love and grace. I can't wait to see you again. I'm planning a trip to Portland in May.

  5. Hello Taci
    The Babe'sBlanket and bonnet is just lovely...lovely in its sweetness!! :-)
    I really don't know how you find time to crochet if you are moving house. I remember the last time I moved house oh my I was so frenetically organizing everything that even crochet got put to one side. I hope you'll post pics of your new house would love to see it!

    keep well
