I got up a little extra early this morning to make sure that nothing was going to get in my way of finishing the baby blanket today.
I finished the 'little' tag last night and then sewed it on this morning.  Now it's going through a little wash so that it will be soft and snuggly and ready to use when our new nephew arrives next month.

I couldn't wait to show everyone.
It will be sent off tomorrow so that it will be waiting on the newest member of the family.
I'm so excited for him to get here and see how darn cute he is.

Off for another fun filled day before the Africa heat sets in.
Mowing the yard and doing some serious weeding in the garden.
Whew!  Those things grow waaaay too fast.

Then I get to start on my quilt later!
All 625 squares are waiting patiently for me to get started with all that stitching.
Impatient little buggers!


  1. Oh,Kar!!!
    Its Gorgous!
    What a very lucky little fellow he is!

  2. it's beautiful!!

    hope your day isn't too unbearably hot...and i know what you mean about the weeds. i was out in my garden first thing this morning pulling those buggers out.

  3. LOVE, Love, love this Baby Blanket. The colors are great and I also like the border. Would love to have that pattern. The little one will be happy in this new blanky.
