Counting Down The Days

August 16th is the date our next grand baby is due to arrive...but one never knows which day the baby will decide to honor us with her presence
We just know she is going to bloom and flower and will be with us soon...
Please send lots of positive energy to Jackie and Dan for a smooth, & easy, birth....thanks!
A while ago I knit this wool diaper bag for was my first ever experience of felting something in the hot washing machine. The bear in the side pocket is felted too! Yes, it was the same one I drew a while back.
It's jam packed with other goodies, baby clothes, baby album, books for baby, and blocks I knit too. I'll show them to you another time.
Sweet for me to see it sitting on a blanket my mother knit years ago for herself!
My heart is just full of love today
with all these thoughts.
And last night I got a call from my six year old grand kids,
who will turn seven this time next month; I had asked them to tell me
what they wanted me to make them
for their birthday gifts
as that is what I do.
My grand daughter had no problem coming up with something quickly;
she said "I want a stuffed toy dolphin, blue. You can use many shades of blue!"
My grand son could not decide. I told him to sleep on it and get back to me.
Can't wait to hear what he requests!
This is so much fun for me.
Lots to be grateful for on Grateful Thursday! What about you?
