Saturday

I think knitting and crochet has made me lazy... I need to get outside in the yard!

 The winter months have kept me in the house a lot and all I've been doing in the way of crafting is knit and crochet.  I need to get outside and do a bit of painting and refinishing but knowing my new grandbaby is coming soon and being so excited about it's arrival I've been making all sorts of needed items.
My daughter has just began to accumulate all that she will need for her new little ones arrival the first week of April.   As I said in previous posts this will be #4 for my daughter and after her third boy she packed away all the infant things but they were lost in her move from Guam back to the states.  She needs to start all over with everything from clothing to crib.  So Grandma has been busy.
This latest gift is a really soft bulky knit crib blanket and pillow.

 I used bridal satin for the fringe  and backing on the pillow and it really makes it  special.
 The little bear will be on the package bow.

 Another gift was a set of Onesies that I put a photo of the babies brothers, you can see how I did this Here  and the really sweet and soft Terry Bath Set  Here

 I have more items that I have made and will post them soon.
 I'll tell you, it's been fun for me to create gifts for the baby and it's so nice to do for a child who is going to #4 in a family.  This baby needs and deserves to be treated as if it's the first.  Maybe it's a good thing all the past baby  items from #1-2 and 3  were lost. (wink)
I think this week I'm going to force myself outside to give the grass some fertilizer and maybe pull a few weeds.  I need the exercise to say the least because I'm feeling so lazy.

It looks so soft and warm. How perfect for the new baby. I think we all stay in a lot more in the winter months...even here in Florida. The days are so short! Sweet hugs!

This little bundle of joy is going to be one special baby. This set is so beautiful and I can just feel the softness right now. The baby will love feeling the satin. My yard is still covered in snow. No pulling weeds here. lol! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
