Diaper Jacket

Here is what I came up with for a diaper jacket to go with the blanket that I made. I am now working on the hat. I also made a cute pair of booties that I will post when I post a photo of the hat.
I really am going to try and get this pattern on paper for those of you who like it.






I hope that everyone has had a wonderful weekend.

A touching Email I received today

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She
hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.. He was always
there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see
the world, I will marry you.'

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
came off, she was able to see everything, including her
boyfriend.

He asked her,'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who
was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

Today before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't
speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

Today before you complain about life - Think of someone seriously ill who fights for every breath

Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.

This pretty much says it all. Count your blessings each and everyday. My mom always used to tell me, "I complained because I had no shoes until I met the man who had no feet". Be thankful for what you have and thank the Lord that you have it.

Ottoman Doily

I made this for sis. She seen it posted on one of the groups we belong to and asked for the pattern, if it was a free pattern and it was, YAY. So I hurried and made one for her before she could make one for herself. She should receive it today or tomorrow in the mail. I know she is going to love it and she is anxiously awaiting its arrival.




I love you sis!!

Baby Blanket

Here is what I made yesterday. It is a simple "V" stitch with one skein of simply soft brights in watermelon and the light pink is Red Heart Baby Clouds in Pink Lemonade and the darker fluffy pink is Red Heart Bright and Lofty in Bubblegum. I used an "M" hook and did a hdc all around the border.
This is a gift for one of the sisters who's daughter just had a baby.



I hope everyone has a great weekend. *HUGS*

Pillow

I decided to make a pillow to go with the Afghan for my mother-in-law. This was actually the swatch square that I did to show her what I thought the square should look and then after seeing it in one color we went and picked out another color which was the heather grey. So I saved the solid square and it has been tossed here and there and I thought of the pillow.

I made an applique first of little forget-me-not flowers and attached in a bunch. I them embellished that with beads and sewed it to the center of the square after adding several rows to the border. I then made two petal forget-me-not's that seemed to look like butterflies to me and placed them in each corner and put the smaller forget-me-not's that I had from a bag of buttons and sewed them to the middle. I think the red/pink color is the same to match the curtains that she made with fabric she bought while on her last trip to Paris. If it does not match I can always remove them with a simple "snip".

So here are the photos.





Love and Hugs and wishing you a happy Friday!!

Yup, you heard right. I have finished it tonight. Here are the photos and I have it in the wash right now so I can block it a bit. I am pleased with it and hope my mother- in- law loves it. I am sure she will, she is such a wonderful person and I could not ask for a better Mother-in-law.





Have a great tomorrow. *HUGS*
