Good gracious, where has this month gone to?  It has been such a busy month!  I am almost finished with the hooded sweater I am knitting for my Great Granddaughter to be and making plans for her baby shower in November. 
side seams and sleeve seams need to be sewn, then all I have left is the hood to knit :)

3 buttonholes , now I need cute pink buttons... 

Sharing the feathers I collect that my daughter Barbie gave to me after a trip to the fruit and animal Indigo Farms, SC.  She found the feathers while taking photos and walking about. 

This drawer full of feathers are mostly from Canadian Geese.  All large white feathers are from the swans left in the yard when they are preening.

I bought a new pattern to start making toddlers dresses and cannot wait to start those!  So much I would like to do, and so little hours in a day-ha!

Can't wait to make one of these with the little matching headbands!  Sweet Pattern from Sz 1 to 3yr.

Do you have several projects going at the same time??  I always do! Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment, they make my day!

Photo Book

FYI  I just finished making up this wonderful little book at Shutterfly with my favorite photos taken in the last 2 years.  With a code they sent to me, it only cost under 9.00 which was mostly postage!  I am so pleased and it will arrive in 7-9 days and is hardcovered!  Just wanted to share :)  You could make yours with grandchildren's pictures or any of your favorites, too.  Love it.

You'll love Shutterflys award-winning photo books. Try it today.

Baby Blanket Throw

Just had to share this beautiful baby blanket throw that my soon to be a Grandma daughter, crocheted for her Granddaughter on the way!!  It is crocheted in Baby Blanket Yarn that is dense and will be great for cold nights and double as a throw for the floor when wanting to set baby down to play.  It is so soft and cuddly.  I love the added frilly ruffle all around the edge, just beautiful!  I am put to shame as I am still knitting on my little pink sweater hoodie  for the new little GREAT granddaughter for me!  

We are all so excited and planning a shower for my granddaughter Jessica in November.  Due in January, it won't be that long now!

Thanks for coming as always and if you have time, please check out new posts on my other blogs with the links in the sidebar.
