And now....for something a little different

We are expecting our first grandchild in 
June, and what can a grandmother do except 
make things to welcome the little one?

This is a crocheted afghan - pattern is 'Snuggle Up' from 'Best of Terry Kimbrough Baby Afghans' published by Leisure Arts. 

Today's quote is by Don Herald..."Babies are such a nice way to start people".

Oh, how lovely! You'll lose your heart to a wee one soon! It's the best feeling!
That's a nice blankie for lots of upcoming cuddles. Sure hope your soon-to-be wee one lives close by you.
