A Crazy Finish, Some Progress and New Stash!!!

Cannot believe that we are 10 days in to June already! It has been busy around my house these days. I have been babysitting my 9 week old granddaughter while her mom is finishing out the school year. I am having so much fun with her but boy had I forgotten what it is like to take care of a little one! Let me tell you, she is keeping me busy! By the time I get home in the evening I don't have a lot of energy left to get my chores done. But as I said, I am having so much fun taking care of her. She is such a good baby!

I have managed to get some stitching done during naptimes and a little more stitching in the evenings after dinner.

First up is my 2nd Crazy January Challenge finish for the year!

Natures Beauty by Little House Needlework

Next up is a progress picture on a new start! I am loving working on this one, the colors are so pretty and it is moving along so fast!

As the Crow Flies by The Prairie Schooler

I am also crocheting a little afghan for a cousins new baby! It is really for the cousin's daughter's baby, guess that will make the baby my 3rd cousin. The yarn is so soft, just perfect for a little one!

Now to show you my new stash! I saw a finish on Myra's blog and just had to order the design and well...a few others jumped in that order too!

Barbara Ana Designs

I had never seen designs by this designer before and they are so cute I just had to have a few!

Well that is all I have for now. With two more weeks of babysitting I don't think there will be very much time for stitching but I will be visiting and reading all your blogs and commenting when I can!

I also want to thank those of you who visit and those who comment on my blog posts! It puts a smile on my face when I get your comments and see new followers added!

Until next time...blessings to you and happy stitching!
