Starting Over!!

I have started (again!) the baby blanket that fell apart!! I followed Dorothy's advice and chose a simple pattern that will crochet easily and hopefully quickly.

The gift is from my heart, and I'm sure that Kristan will not care or even know that it is not the original plan that I had cemented in my mind. She has already asked my daughters if I'll be making things for her baby, and she will be excited to receive anything that I make for this new little one.

I'm on a definite deadline now--my youngest daughter arrives from Texas on the 23rd, the baby shower is the 26th of this month. The best part of this baby shower is that the new mother-to-be doesn't know that her best friend is flying from Texas just for this occasion! She will be so surprised!!

Lindsay is flying into Baltimore that Thursday morning, and we're planning on spending the day at Inner Harbor and Lexington Market--should be a fun day!! I haven't been to Lexington Market since I was just a little girl, but this place brings back good, happy memories.

Hopefully, I can accomplish enough tonight on this blankie that I'll have some pictures to post tomorrow.

Make sure to stop and visit me at The Power of Your Love. I have something special going on over there!!

K--that's all for a while!

Blessings Beth...thanks for taking the TAG...I added your name with this link, if you want me to link you at one of your other just say the word!

I noticed you asked for help the other day on your precious baby blanket & since I have no idea, I just offered up a prayer. God cares.
So now with you starting over, I will pray for the timely completion and bless Dorothy for her advice. What counts is that it's from your heart. No perfection now, take your time and pay attention where you leave off or whatever counting stitches, break at the end of a section. Does she read your blog?
Cause you just gave away the surprise (lol)!!! Enjoy catching up
there's no deadlines in blog land so don't worry about when you do the TAG or the Friendship deal ...it's for whenever just don't forget about it. (maybe make a draft with the TAG & come back to it later)! Gotta go over to Power
of Your Love...thanks!!! Peggy
