A Few Ta-Dahs

What a wonderful day it has been! I have been enjoying some sunshine, taking pictures, staring lovingly at my garden beds and my seedlings, and I even made a video tutorial for my best friend down in Georgia who is a newbie crocheter. 

Ahhh life is so good right now!

I am so happy that I have finished two projects! Both were for my cousin Mandy. One was a baby blanket for the little girl she had YESTERDAY.

As you can see it was made in the round using baby pink, lavender, and a little cream.

The second was for her son Cade (who is such a cutie patootie)! She requested it to be in the browns and greens and this is what I came up with ....I do love love love the diagonal stripes of this blanket.
 Unfortunately I have not yet had the chance to give them to her as she had her baby girl yesterday afternoon but I am sure I will be making a trip to visit as soon as her and her new addition settle in at home.

I also have a couple little garden updates for you.

First of all, I have lovely little pink tulip buds in my front flower beds. These pink tulips were for the Plant for Hope campaign.

My peas have sprouted and are starting to get their lovely little tendrils to climb, climb, climb.

My little seed babies have been enjoying themselves in their little greenhouse (and my little garden helper Roxy has been naughty, naughty by trying to eat my seedlings)

And I have beautiful, gorgeous, unique pink bleeding hearts flowers!

That is going to be all my friends. 
Life has been slow and steady lately.
It is rather nice.

Now for a photo of the day....

This is the same tulip in the photo above. I just LOVE the pink and white...GORGEOUS!

Many Blessings to you all!


  1. Nice blankets, they will be lucky to have them. I love the Bleeding Hearts too.

  2. Boy, those are two big projects to finish.. bravo, you! Love that your peas are sprouting, we are still having coldish weather, so our garden adventure will have to wait a while. Meantime, I'll watch yours growing!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Psst. I gave you a blogging award!
