One last March Blanket

This is another baby blanket. It's made with Lion Brand Baby in Carnation.

I didn't measure the blanket but it is baby sized. LOL

We were cleaning out a closet and I found a bag of this yarn. I was surprised to find it because I thought I had used all of this yarn in this color.

About six years ago we had a nice dollar store in town and they had this Lion Brand baby yarn on sale for a dollar a skein. That was a huge discount and I bought a lot of this yarn.

I have some of that yarn left and even a few skeins of the carnation.

It makes such a nice baby blanket.

March Blankets

This is a baby blanket made with Lion Brand Chunky. It's yarn I bought at the dollar store!! I was shocked when I saw it there.

This blanket is made for a woman having a little boy.

March Blankets

This is a white baby blanket and three white washcloths I made for the Auction at school this year.

The blanket is made with Bernat Baby Coordinates yarn. It has a shiny thread through the yarn and I thought it made a pretty baby blanket.

The blanket measures about 30 inches wide and about 40 inches long.

The washcloths are made with miscellaneous white cotton yarn. They are so soft and get even softer with use.

I also included a white baby toy and two white onsies for the basket this year!

Last year I made two baskets, one blue basket and one pink one. This year I decided to just make one white basket for the auction.

A decision...

Hubby and I were talking last night about many things.

I decided that it's time for me to go back to school and get my degree.

Degree in what you might ask?? Well that's a good question and I haven't decided yet, but I am leaning toward two subjects.

I am just at the beginning of this journey so I have a lot of looking into before I begin.

Before I got pregnant with the little guy, I had thought about going back to school. Obviously the timing was not right.

I am excited, nervous and scared all at the same time. But it helps to have a very supportive spouse, and a spouse that is excellent at math so that I can have my very own tutor!!

I'll keep the blog updated on my decisions.

Pinewood Derby day...

This is the little guys Pinewood derby car.

It's really a Spongebob skateboard and I hope it does well today!!

The little guy is very excited about the race today!

Update: He won for BEST SHOW in his whole pack, and he didn't even vote for his own car!!
AND, he won third place in his den.

I'm so proud of him!!

March Blankets

This purple blanket is made with Bernat Baby Coordinates. I didn't measure it so I don't know how large it is. It is baby sized.
This blue one is made with Lion Brand Chunky. It's a thick blanket too.
This baby blanket is made with Bernat Baby's Breath and the yarn is very very similar to the Lion Brand Homespun that I love so much.

The washcloths on top of it are made with 100% cotton yarn. They are so soft and will make nice washcloths for a baby.

A birthday

Today is my little guys birthday.

He had a good day. No big party or anything.

He brought Dinosaur cupcakes to school and he had a dinosaur cake again this year. I haven't downloaded the pics yet but I will soon.

Sister is coming in a couple weeks, and we celebrated with the Grandma's on Sunday.

I can hardly believe that my little 5 pound baby is now 7 years old!!!
