Yarn Along

I found a new MEME to join.
Perhaps Ginny will get me to crochet, knit and read more!

Crochet Baby Blanket

I've been crocheting this baby blanket.
It's a Herrschners kit called Lil' Lullabies Baby Blanket.
The Mom of the baby likes the color purple, so I thought this was perfect.
It was interesting. I crocheted the blocks and put them together first
and then the interior of the blanket was  crocheted in place. 
Something new and different for me! 

The Nora Roberts book VISION IN WHITE is perfect reading material for the treadmill!

Happy Couple

Here are the happy parents to be.
I'm so happy they were able to visit the states in October while Mr. Dragon was still with us
and able to enjoy their visit.
We always take the family to our favorite Thai restaurant and take photos with "Bob"!!!
A tradition that I'm sure will continue.

Be sure to visit Ginny at Small Things and see what others are making and reading.

Wishing you WELL and a JOY filled week.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by my humble blog.
It's great to have you join us. The crowd is getting bigger each week. It's fun to be inspired by what people are reading and by what they have on their needles.
I love the baby blanket! You're done an excellent job on it. Your stitches look so even. I've never heard of making the border first... Very interesting!

Hi! Thanks for visiting, your blog is beautiful. I will have an empty nest this August so I will be "retired" as well :)

This is beautiful blanket for baby to be wrapped and cuddled in or to have it drapped over the baby for warmth...the parents are so blessed to have such a gift from you.

I'm glad you explained who "Bob" is -- I was thinking the couple was a triple :)

The baby blanket is adorable!! And "Bob" looks more like a Babbette! BTW, my daughter loves dragons too, and my son loves teddy bears and I think they would love you!! Nice to meet a fellow seeker and nature lover, cheers!!
