Grape and Lavendar

As promised here is the other baby blanket I have just finished. I really love this one alot. This one is also Red Heart Soft Yarn and is my first attempt at the scalloped edge. I think that if we have another girl in the future I will make another one like this or really similar as this one is for some close friends who are expecting their little girl in a few weeks.

Green and Orange

Here is another baby blanket I crocheted for a gift. I really like the green and orange together. It is just double crochet rows with a single stitch border. I used Red Heart Soft Yarn. I love working with that yarn because it is fairly inexpensive and the finished products are so nice. Let me know what you think or any suggestions for the future. I have another almost done that is a little smaller with two purple yarns. It is a little more subtle and I really love it. I will try to finish it up and share soon.

Ellie Kathleen

I would like to introduce you to little Ellie. She was born on April 17, weighing 7 lbs. 11 oz. and measuring 21 inches long. She is such a joy to me already and I am so excited for her parents and extended family. This is a little girl who will be showered in love and prayer her whole life. I was lucky enough to spend 5 days with her and I already miss her.

Perfect Hubby

(well almost) for you skeptics, I am completely aware that my husband is not completely perfect. However, he IS perfect for me. Thank you for figuring out the babysitting while working 55+ hours this week and struggling with his school assignment. Thank you for your encouraging words after being up with a sick toddler. I was so tired and regretfully I don't remember all the exact words but I fell back to sleep peacefully. Let me tell you, when you feel like you don't have one more ounce of energy to wipe away more tears or snot those few words of comfort can be like a cold drink on a hot day. Thank you Shane for always (or at least usually) knowing exactly what I need. ;) I love you!
