Crocheting, Knitting, and waiting...

February has creeped up on me faster than I thought it would. I've been doing things, not sure what exactly, guess the winter blas have set in a bit, but I know they are actually some life yuckies.

Anyway, I thought I would share a baby gift I made for a friend's second grandbaby. She is having a little boy this month and I wasn't sure what she needed but thought a blanket and some burp cloths can always be used....
 The blanket is made from two pieces of flannel in a fun patchwork quilt pattern and I decided to add a crocheted edge to it to dress it up a bit.
 Sorry, blogger rearranged my pics...  I've been teaching myself to knit.  I was just not getting it the other night and it was frustrating me to no end, so I put it down.  I picked it back up again today and somehow my hands and needles finally caught on to what my mind had already picked up.  I managed to figure out both the knit and purl stitch and now I can play around with other designs.  On the needles here is not a project, it's just practice.... try not to laugh to0 hard at my uneven stitches.

Here are the burp cloths, flannel on one side and cotton on the other....

 And I found this book at goodwill for $.99, I know my mom will love it. She loves Warren Kimble and it has several of his paintings in the book that she can tear out and frame.

We are waiting for a big snow storm to hit some time tomorrow, two feet or more supposedly, the kids are hoping for a snowday(I am too).  I'm waiting for a phone call from the Dr to let me know that bad news that my heart already knows.



  1. Hope things turn out okay.


  2. Love the blanket ,and the burp cloths.
    Hope all goes well with the Dr.

  4. Hi Tiffany,
    I like what you made for the baby. You are always so creative.
    I am not sure what has happened here, but I sense not so good. I hope that you are alright. I will be praying for you.

  5. Tiff
    You make me wish I was having a baby! Your gifts are so sweet.
    I don't know what the Drs call is about, but I'll pray for you too.

  6. Hi Tiff, love the baby gifts! I think the knitting looks great, keep at it! Praying that you stay safe during the storm and also praying for the doctor's call! (((Hugs)))
    Be blessed,

  8. I am thinking of you. I love those burp clothes! Any interest in possibly making some to sell? I have 4 new baby boys coming into the family this year and those would make a great gift. Let me know.

  9. Beautiful gift and praying for your good news from the Dr...
