We have a new grandson!

Logan Eli Garner was born October 15th, 2016 weighted 7 lb. 2 oz.  20 inches long.
He came home with Jaundice, and a fractured collar bone.  Of course we know it is
just a cartridge, but it should have been normal, not fractured.  JMO 

But, he has another problem called
Tracheomalacia - congenital.  The doc. treating him said he has another baby that was born with the
same condition.  

I don't agree with a doc breaking the mother's water, and inducing labor
hours before she gives birth.  God did not intend for babies to come that way.
He break's the water, and then the baby comes. 

Seems like babies are born on a doctor's schedule now days instead
of the way God planned them to be born.  Well, no seems about it; they are. 

They need that extra week to fully develop, and if
there are problems then a mother knows it was to be.

Mother and baby. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting me, comments are welcomed.



Finished Red Heart Sampler Afghan

Hello friends, and family,

It has been awhile since I posted here, and I see some of you have continued to come visit me in hopes that I have added something new, or designed something new. 

I have been working absolutely month's on this afghan.  12 squares and each one of them are
a different technique other than the usual knit and purl stitches, and not all the same size which poses a problem setting them together. 

School summer vacation for our grandchildren took out 2 month's of that time.  Just can't concentrate with  an 11, and 8 year old in the house, and it was so hot they couldn't be outside long, and most of the time when they could it was late in the evening after the sun went down; by then their parents were home from working.

So, once school got back in session I worked like a mad woman trying to catch up, and get the Afghan squares made, and set together. 

Now I am in the process of making my DGS an Iron Man hat, as requested by him.  I found a real neat pattern, but for some reason the directions are not working out for me, and I am not new to making hats, both crochet and knit, but do like to go by a pattern.   Oh well, I'll look for just a simple plain hat for the back ground and see if this mask will work out right.  I may even give the directions a second try to see if I missed something.  I sure like this hat though.

Thank you for stopping in, and visiting me.
