It's been a while since I blogged. I was planning to go on a little trip with my sister & cousin, but my DH had a bad spell again. To make a long story short, we found out that he has a bulging disc and he was in the hospital for a week. He will be getting a shot in the disc on Monday that we're hoping will help the pain situation. So, I had to cancel another trip.
Of course, I have kept working on various projects and right now I'm quilting the baby quilt for the new GD expected in December. I hope to finish the quilting today and then will sew on the binding.A friend at work has asked me to make a doll quilt for her GD, so here is a picture of what I have started. The backing is on top of the quilt top. The second picture below shows 2 doll quilt tops together.
While DH was in the hospital, my DS#3, DIL & GS came to visit. I asked my DIL if anyone was planning to make Jonah a Christmas stocking (kind of hoping his other GM was planning to do it), but no, noone else was going to do it, so we found a cross stitch pattern and I have started working on it. I like to have handwork handy that I can take with me to places like - umm - hospitals, doctor's appointments, etc. Hope I finish it in time for Christmas, but actually, at his age (5 months), he won't know the difference.
This morning I went for a walk in my neighborhood. It was 46 degrees and felt sooo good! I came across a garage sale and bought a few items of lace, etc. (below). I will probably use them for some craft projects, like Christmas ornaments or doll bed linens. Besides the doll quilts I'm making now, I am planning to make doll bed linens for the new GD, however, won't need them for a couple years, since she's not even born yet!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
