Oh My How Time Flies!!!

I cannot believe my last post was Feb 2nd!

Things have been very busy in the Nana household!! Jamie is growing tall faster than he can keep eating and he is such an active little man! He's also cutting more teeth and starting to say more words. His new words lately have been 'uck' for Duck (Thanks to Grandma! [my mom]), Yes, 'ephan' for his new elephant we picked up for him a couple days ago.

My crocheting??? Well in March I finished up some yarn dyeing, felting for the first time and I felted a Bowl, a purse and working on a little bitty bag for someone special.

I also finished up my granddaughter's afghan that was supposed to have been finished for Christmas but she'll get it later this summer for next Winter. It took 6 days from the time I counted stitches to figure out an even number for all the 12" squares and then using Attic24's Join as You go to put them together, add a border and then a second border with picot added. Its totally finished.

Now to get busy on the Boys' afghans! LOL.....I'm gonna take a few days break, maybe work on a small project in the meantime.

Anyhow here is the Afghan for Abby!

Busy! Busy! Busy!

My grandson Jamie lives with me full time. I don't get much time to blog, read blog posts or be on the computer other than Ravelry (usually!) I don't even get on Facebook that often anymore either.

Christmas was great! I've been slowly working on blankets for my grandkids and one for my dad which was his Christmas gift. My goal is to try and get it done for his Birthday!

I made and finished a hat for Jamie with earflaps and am working on the same pattern for the other 4 grands.

Here is Jamie in his hat. Camera broke so using webcam photos.
