Baby blanket

August 29, 2013

This is the second blanket in the works for my little grandson who is about to arrive any day now. 
The first blanket has a mix of blue, green and white, very pretty.  
It's been a very long time since I last crocheted, as I also love to knit. 
On this blanket I'm simply working a single crochet stitch using a K 6.5 hook. 
 I will work the scalloped edge using a~double crochet, single crochet, double crochet~ 
all three stitches in one hole, a slip stitch in the next hole 
and so on around the entire blanket. I will show another photo when finished.
I love all things simple!
If you have never crocheted before this is a great way to start!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!

Good morning everyone,
I recently finished a rug that I would like to share.
This pattern was designed by Norma Batastini. 
It really was a lot of fun to hook!
I have also started crocheting again, 
I am on my second baby blanket.
 I'm crocheting a simple single stitch and adding 
a scalloped border around the edges.
It's so very relaxing!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!
xoxo Louise

Thank You!

Thank you all so very much for your thoughtfulness, 
Kind words and prayers for my dear friend Carole Holt
And her family.

Those we Love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because a loved one is gone.
Those we Love can never be,
more than a thought apart.
For as long as there is a memory,
They'll live on in our hearts.
                  xoxo Louise

My dearest friend.

My dearest friend Carole Holt, you may also know as  
passed away peacefully at her home this past Friday evening.
Just a few months ago she was told she had a very rare form of cancer. 
Please take a moment to say a prayer for Carole and her family.
May God watch over her family and keep her in a special place.

We will miss you!
xoxo Louise

The three of us did so much together!

Me, Carole Holt, Carole O'Neill
