I have known for several months that I am going to be a Great Gramma about the end of February! My Grandson Jordan and his wife, Jenna, are going to have a little girl. It's been 15 years since we had a baby in my immediate family and it's exciting.  Tomorrow is Jenna's baby shower so I made several things to take . I knitted a soft, soft small blanket out of Bernat's Pipsqueak yarn. If you are a knitter, you probably have made or know about the knitted dish cloth pattern that starts by casting on only 4's the pattern that I used for the blanket and I only used 2 skeins to make it. The blanket is about 24 x 24 inches.

 I also made a receiving blanket, the one with the self binding, mitered corners and such. It's an easy gift to make for someone.  I had some left over flannel so I made 2 burp pads, cute!!
And then there is the dollie. I found a pattern for a very simple little cloth doll, it was just what I wanted. I embroidered the face and stuffed her up pretty good. I think she's cute and cuddly..AND now, drumroll please,  I found out at Christmas that my oldest grandson, Ryan, and his wife, Jessica are going to have a little one too!!  That little one should arrive around the first part of August so I guess I need to get busy making some more blankets..And I will start making some baby quilts's an exciting time for my family.   Sew until next time, I hope you have a Stitches kind of day!!
