The reason I haven't been around....

is because I have been babysitting my grandson Jamie a lot lately!

Vanna's Choice Pink & Brown Swap on Ravelry

I love using VC yarns and am slowly building my stash. But I thought You'd like to see the squares I have made so far and mailed out. I'll be working on some more this week! ( No hooky time this past weekend as you can see from an earlier post!)

Okay will somebody hold my hand and help me step by step on how to put the blogs I love the most including those doing giveaways in a sidebar????

Now....the Goodies!
A couple of friends of mine are doing blog giveaways!

The Crafty Witch is having a rainbow wristlet and mobile phone pouch giveaway! Her site is in Dutch but you can get Google to translate it for you if you wish. She does put some English in there as well.

BUSY Weekend!

Oh man! Was I ever busy this weekend and this Monday morning I'm pretty worn out! Here is the reason! I had Jamie from Friday evening until late late Sunday night. Man, I'm glad that little one sleeps through the night although I didn't get much sleep! Its the first time I've had him overnight since he was born and its like being a first time mom all over again but I sure enjoyed it and I know there will be much more times I'll have him over. I need to beef up on toys for Jamie!

Silly Face!

Happy as a clam! Feet covered because he keeps scratching his eczema until it was bloody. Only thing I could think of was to wrap them to keep him from scratching....shades of his mama! She did the same thing as a child too! Thank goodness she's outgrown most of it!
