Maybe Baby - WOYWW #192

Just when you think the weather has changed for the better and Spring is just around the corner, it changes again and it seems we are back in the grips of Winter. We’ve been lucky again though down in the South East, as we’ve managed to miss the worst of the snow but it’s turned really cold again and I don’t like it………..I need some warmth and sunshine! Winge over and on with my day I guess.

My aim for today is to start a new page for my Heritage Album and I only plan to step outside the door at around midday when I go swimming. I did 32 lengths last week, that’s half a mile, and I hope to do the same today.

But back to my LO and the picture of my desk for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at Julia’s blog ‘The Stamping Ground’ shows all the bits and pieces that I’ve pulled out ready to start my planning.

You can see two photos in the picture.

The one at the back is my brother Michael who now 63. Obviously that’s not the one I’m going to attempt to scrap today …….can’t see him in Pink somehow, Lol, but he will be the next to be done when I find some suitable papers.

This is the one I’m going to do and it’s me playing Peek-a-boo. I think I was about four or five months old there but I’m sure.

While we’re on the subject of baby’s I think it’s safe to say now that the shawl I was knitting is for my Goddaughter Nichola and her husband Paul, who are expecting their first in July.

The knitting is coming along fine and I flew through the centre panels but the edging is taking a life time. Admittedly I had a little break from it and went back to my cross stitch for about a week but so far I’ve just knitted enough to go around two sides and little bit more and it takes 32 patterns per side, so there’s still lots to do.

OK, that’s it from me for another week. I’ll be popping along this afternoon when I get back from swimming to see what everyone is up to this week, so get the Hot Chocolate on for me because the pool was a little chilly last week!

Happy Crafting!

Would you believe it…..just as I was about to start on the LO my furry friend, BoJangles put in an appearance and decided to hinder….I mean help.
Don’t you just love him, Lol!

Great post Sue - I love that snap of you peeking out - black and white is perfect isn't it. Your baby blanket is so beautiful - I could never do anything so intricate. x Jo

What lovely photos to scrap, Sue. I keep meaning to do some older piccies but the new ones seem to pop in there all by themselves. I really must make an effort.
Your shawl is looking so beautiful and well done on the 32 lengths. I love swimming too but when it's so cold I take some persuading to go, something else I must make more of an effort on!!

Your shawl is beautiful. It is so long to get all round the edge isn't it. That was the bit that nearly finished me with the last one I did. I think there were nine separate pieces to put together at the end. I am sure yours will become a family heirloom. Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments on my cards. xx Maggie #20

Such a lot of lovely things on your blog today. I adore that picture of you, it'll make a great LO. And the shawl looks great, you're a neat knitter, that's for sure!! And I must tell you that I love the cards you've been doing for the LillyBo quilts :)
Hugs, LLJ 44 xx

Annie said...

such pretty pink papers and embellies on your desk - sure to make a gorgeous LO. I keep meaning to start with scrapping my pictures but something crops up! I love the baby shawl, such intricate work. I made shawls for my own boys and they got passed down to them for my grandchildren, thankfully not quite as complicated as the one you are doing!
hugs, annie x

I think that Michael would look lovely in pink! I can't wait to see what your scrapbook page will look like. And I reckon that wonderful shawl will become an heirloom - wrapping up generations with love
