I have FINALLY finished my G-baby's Blanket!

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July weekend ~ as I mentioned in my previous post, we had a get-together over at my brother & sister-in-law's house on Sunday, as my nephew was home on leave...he was suppose to fly back to Alaska yesterday, but he managed to get his leave extended until the 24th...but that means it will be even longer before he will be able to get another leave :( We have also been working on power washing the exterior of our home ( which it needed DESPERATELY!!) Having a soft yellow house is nice, but boy does it show the dirt so easily!

Anyhoo :), I wanted to show you a couple of pictures of the completed blanket that I have been crocheting for my first grandchild ~ I just did a simple square design, with skeins of a soft multi-color, followed by a soft yellow, then soft green, then back to the multi-colored, a simple white, then finished with a "ruffle" of the soft green. Isn't it just sooooo sweet :) I had crocheted blankets for each of my 3 children, and made sure to have them done before they were born so that I could wrap them up with them when we brought them home :)




I hope to very soon be able to tell you about the "Exciting news" that I mentioned some time ago ~ I'm just waiting for "it" to arrive in the mail, which it is on it's way here from Italy :) What oh what could it be?

Until next time sweet friends!!

It always gives you such a warm feeling when you make something special for that little one to be. I know you will spoil them because all grandmothers do. I love the colors that you chose because they would work wonderfully whether a boy or girl. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Brenda- Your blog is looking great. The baby blanket is adorable and surely will become a family heirloom.
I will be starting on a baby blanket with embrodered bluebirds soon, I'm not proficient at embrodery so a fun learning project.

What oh what is that surprise?? Italy, huh? Hmmmmmm.
Blessings, L
