A Baby Shower

For everyone who has been reading my blog, you know my last few posts were full of stressful banter. I want to thank you for your patience while I have been indulging my whiny gene. Hopefully, this period is over. I myself am looking forward to better days and happier posts...
So, here is the first piece of good news. A friend of mine, a very nice lady, is going to be a mom soon. She is expecting a girl, and last week she invited me to her baby shower. I took my trusty hook and crocheted her a baby afghan...

Although I was in hurry, the blanket came out really even. What a pleasant surprise. But the most important thing - the future mom liked it!
To everyone who is reading my posts, I thank you and wish you a pleasant week.
Until next time.

Quick Life and Stitching Update

After all the family emergencies and health crises, we finally seem to be doing better. Rita's stitches are out, although she mentioned that "next time" she would rather take them out herself. I said I hoped there would be no next time.
All my stitching is paying off. The Hogwarts Crest is moving along.
I really like the way it's turning out, all the bright gold and green colors.
The mansion is coming along nicely too, but since taking the pic I already stitched more on it, so I will have to take another picture when the light is good.
Don't remember if I mentioned it, my hubby got a new job! Lots of changes, so far positive - no more driving all over the coast, no more hectic schedules.
Happy stitching!
