Pink Saturday

My life right now pretty much revolves around my grandkids which is fine by me! The photo below is Avery in her outfit for her trip home from the hospital. Her mom bought her a bishop smocked dress and I made her a little pink sweater to wear with it. I'm so glad it fit her so well. So often I knit something and the fit leaves much to be desired!

Her parents have been very lucky so far-she's a sweet baby and doesn't cry much at all. Her brother on the other hand has had a little trouble adjusting. He says he loves his "sissy" but he wants his mom to pick him up and hold him and she can't just yet. Of course, his grandmoms and pops are only too happy to entertain him! 

Be sure to pop on over to Beverly's and visit all the pinks you want---Thank you Beverly!! Can't wait for Spring-maybe I'll get outside and be able to take some pictures of some flowers and trees!

Wedding Plans

Went Sunday to visit the place where Katie and Derrick are having the wedding. It really is beautiful  and the weather was perfect! Hopefully, grass will be greener and the weather will cooperate next November. (Front of the house)

In this picture is the ballroom where the main reception will be. The doors open on to a brick patio with an outdoor fountain and fireplace (which will be lit if it's chilly). Isn't the floor fabulous?

Meanwhile, sewing a few gifts for work. Here's a pic of a tote bag and a playmat with "On the Go" fabric. Another great selvedge to use on the handle.

The mat was so simple-a pre-printed panel which I backed with some black denim to make it sturdy. I hope the little boy who gets this loves it as much as I do. I ordered a couple more panels to make gifts for  me to share too! Of course I ordered more other fabric too-that bug just won't go away!!
