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".


  1. What a lovely quote and a gorgeous afghan.

  2. I have to hunt down that pattern! It's so beautiful and so is your yarn choice. Good work, Grandma!
