Baby Boom

There has been a bit of a baby boom.  My nephew and his wife had a baby girl in July.  Mike's oldest grandson and his wife had a baby boy.

This prompted me to get out knitting needles and yarn to make booties and baby hats.



I also started working on a crib quilt.  The fun part is done, now on to sandwiching and quilting.
I am not a very advanced quilter -- stitch in the ditch is may speed.




I know it is cliche to pick pink for a baby girl, but I love pink and I can't help myself.

  1. I only have one baby boom going on at the moment. :) Another granddaughter to add to the mix come Oct. Then it will be tied up. Two grandsons and two grand-Princesses. :) - I haven't picked up knitting needles in a while but I am addicted to my crochet hook and sewing machine!- Here's to happy, healthy grandbabies and lots of 'em! :D

  2. Pink for a girl, blue for a boy, always, why apologize.

  3. You are the kind of grandmother/aunt it is good to have. Nothing like hand made.

  4. I like pink, too, but yellow is a good unisex color. Lol.

  5. Well, aren't you handy! I don't know how to knit, and my quilting is at the stitch in a ditch level too. Your creations look great!

  6. These are all beautiful. I knit for relaxation and don't make a thing. It's something to do with my hands in the winter. I am not good though so I just knit. My husband says it takes me from a stress level 12 to 1 and he likes that. That made me laugh. He'd like it even more if I could learn to make something.

  7. I wish I had your talent and skill. Heck I just wish I had a grandchild. That might even motivate me to learn a new skill.

  10. We had baby boom too starting back in February a boy,March another boy and June a 9lb girl! All are well. I am no longer trying to make stuff as it hurts my eyes too much and then my ego too. I just try to be supportive in other ways. I send books.
    I love the shape of those booties.
