Hi! I have been busy making some baby shower gifts. The shower is this Sunday and I hopefully, will be done by then.

This is the first one:

P1020088

At first, I thought that the mother and father were not going to find out what the baby’s sex would be, so I bought some fabric that could be for a boy or a girl. I put a backing and batting on it and then proceeded to hand quilt some of the the lines going up & down and side to side. I didn’t do them all because I just wanted it quilted enough to hold the batting in place. On the back, I put 2 fat quarters (1-yellow and 1-green) together and sewed it on with batting. Hope she likes it!

I will post the 2nd one in a separate post

Last week the doctor told me to stop using the walker and take the boot off. That was so hard!!! My foot, ankle, and leg became swollen. I could only use a cane for support. It just hurt so much to even try to walk. I went to physical therapy on Tuesday and Brian said that my leg was used to being straight and not bendable. He said to go back to using the walker to learn to bend my leg when I walked. It is getting better. I just want to be able to walk without pain.

I have been able to get a chocheted blanket for the new baby coming. I also crocheted a blanket for Olivia. Next step is to make the baby quilt.

Last week we had some warm weather and then it snowed again. So now I look out the window and see snow on the round but keep thinking of Spring. Looking forward to warm days, flowers sprouting, birds singing, people cutting their grass! I love the smell of cut grass especially in the spring.

I have started 2 projects. One is a crocheted baby afghan and the other is a baby quilt. I started the afghan using light yellow baby yarn. I plan to add pink and a light green, too. Then I will put a ruffle around it.

For the quilt, I bought some embroidered quilt blocks on EBay and will sew it together with pink fabric. The quilt blocks are white background and the embroidery is various baby girl blocks. It will look good with the pink fabric around the white blocks. Now I have to get going. The grandbaby is due in May.
