A little of this and a little of that....

I've been busy.  My husband has been on vacation from work for the last week, which has been fantastic since he's let me sleep in so much!  Nothing like catching up on all that missed sleep, right?  I've also made the mistake of signing up to take part in two Christmas in July craft exchanges.  I'm late sending my crafts out and still need to work on finishing them up quick.  And the friends of my husband's that I was working on a baby blanket for had their baby three weeks early, which meant I needed to finish up the blanket quick.  It's amazing how things can just pile up sometimes, isn't it?  So, here's a few pictures of what I've been working on and a few tips for d-moms....

Lily loves her pickles!

I'll post more when I've finished my craft exchange projects.  Need to finish them and get them off in the mail.  I just have to hope that the recipients of them think they're worth the wait!


  1. The blanket and hat are precious!! Awesome job! And my boys love pickles too. I always forget to put some in the cart!

  2. The blanket and hat are sooooo adorable! I wish I had some of your skills, but I'm not very crafty.

    Elise loves pickles too!

  3. I bet it will be worth the wait! ;-)
