But I cannot wait to show her the layette Aunt Angie has finished for her. It might be a wee bit big yet, but she is growing FAST! This is a Leisure Arts pattern I changed up. I like the side opening instead of the normal center. It fastens with 3 pearl buttons that barely show in the photograph. The flowers have the buttons as center accents. And NO worries on them coming off. They are practically welded on! The yarn is the softest chenille baby yarn I received from Mama Urchin last year. I got it like the day after I found out the baby was "on board". Perfect timing. Thank you Jennifer.

This is one of the Valentine's I have been making. Popped some in my shoppe. Having fun making these. And yes, I used glitter. LOL Those who know me well, know this is NOT my norm. But the German glass glitter really added the festive touch needed.
Mark is all sicky with a very bad sore throat and fever. How loud can I say, I do not want to be sick??!!!! I have had hives the past couple of days. Actually this is the second time this week. Just the small bumpy itching kind. Stress does that to me sometimes. Blech on the itchies. Yay for Benedryl.

And I am quilting! Well making blocks anyways. I think that counts!! I am doing a small Christmas block exchange with 2 other girlys. The particulars are blocks must be in increments of 3-inches. Primitive fabric theme...darks, no whites or brights. And all Christmas related. I will share pics of the ones I have recieved and the ones I am sending this month when I get a chance. I really wanted to do something like this for a long time. Gather together enough to make a couch/chair throw is what I am thinking. Adding more blocks to my stash as I go along. But the fun variety of blocks from others makes it extra special. We all have different scrap stashes and that will be fun to see. I am trying to work mostly from my scraps as much as I can. Course that means I just make smaller scraps!!!! LOL

Now this is a pic of my old lady crafting as Mark has called it. Whatever. LOL This is an oldfashioned dress potholder I have made it for a friend from crochet thread. Had seen them and made the pattern up as I went along. It takes more thread that I thought with it being 2 layers. And I love the thread holder. Got one for me and Penny at WalMart. Keeps the kitty fur a bit further from the thread and I am not chasing my thread around the house. The project also shoves nicely into it with the hook and scissors. It really takes so little to make me happy :o)
