So much happening!

Hello everyone!  Perhaps my lack of posting recently can be forgiven when I explain that not only have I been working, but I have a new grandbaby and I had a gall bladder attack the other night that landed me in the hospital for a while and now I am planning to have surgery on Thursday.  Ugh.

Anyway, I have several things to show you.  Maybe you remember my last post and the owl hat that I made for my cousin's baby.  In case you missed that post, here is the picture again.
Isn't it cute?

I have since completed the set by making matching booties...

Crafty friends can find the basic pattern for these at

and mittens.

If you have been keeping up with my blog you also will know that I have been working on a custom order parrot for a friend.  It isn't anywhere close to done as yet (He is going to be quite large and lots of work), but here is a progress pic for those who might be curious.

Knowing that my little grand daughter would be arriving any day I made this little sweater dress for her on Tuesday, January 13.  

Crafty friends can find this pattern, which I have personally used dozens of times and highly recommend, at

And, on Wednesday, January 14, the beautiful little recipient made her appearance.

So, as you can see, the last two weeks have been quite busy around here.  I hope you are staying busy and creative as well.  As always, thanks for stopping by,
