White Wednesday is sponsored by Faded Charm Cottage.

My niece and her husband are expecting their first baby this summer. Along with starting baby’s library (check it out and give me some more suggestions!) I made a crib blanket.
Other than a few prayer shawls, I haven't done much crocheting in the past few years. After a couple of false starts, it came together.

My nephew and his wife recently told us they are expecting their first child in the fall. I started their baby's blanket as soon as I completed this one.

I'll get busy on the needlework for the babies' rooms when the next blanket is done.

Christmas is going to be soooooo fun this year, with two new children in the family.

What new or ongoing projects are you doing?

Oh how wonderful Fiona.... There's a baby-boom in your family!!!!! Isn't it nice that you can make something so special for each of them????? The crib blanket is just precious. I know that they will cherish it.

You are a talented lady.

The blanket is beautiful.

I always have ongoing projects and it usually takes somekind of deadline to finish. What a good feeling, I know it!
