Summer is here for most of the US although a few places might still be chilly. What a relief after such a long horrid winter….now is the time to go outside, curl up in a hammock, on the deck, a lawn chair and crochet, breathe deeply and enjoy the short summer months……this baby blanket below is just the perfect project for summer and also welcomes new little ones into your life. So curl up and crochet….if you dont crochet, this blanket can be ordered from me in my Etsy shop pr just drop me a line….until next time, xox Marty

Hi everyone! Well that was one of the worst winters I ever remember! Record snow and cold and Im quite happy it is done! Spring is coming in mighty slow though as it is still only in the low 30’s……however Easter and Spring are almost here which finds me busily crocheting bunny hats as well as chick and bluebird hats all from the Pipsqueak Hats Pattern from Crochet By Jennifer…,a pic of my bunny hat included 🙂  Happy Spring!!Image
