How is your summer going?  My most recent finishes won't come in useful until winter, but I feel good about being ahead of the game.
I made another 'Gellatly' hat. This time I used yarn from Lichen & Lace from Sackville New Brunswick. Ohhhhh it feels wonderful.

My daughter gets this one.

These socks.  How cute are they?  I can just imagine my little grand babe having toasty toes. The yarn is Zauberball from Germany.

Not to forget the rest of my family, I canned peaches this year! I never crack open a jar until the snow flies.  So worth the wait  : )

I finished my bee blocks I was re-doing.  Now you can see how the first time I made the 'yellow' block, the white wasn't quite white. I feel much better about sending the block now.  Sally, is for another member

Last weekend we had a big birthday bash to celebrate all the family birthday's from the past 3 months.  I'll just show you a few of the littlest people in the family

This precious little guy turned 1 and it called for lots of whipped cream and berries!!

Trying to decide how to best tackle it........

Oh. My. Heart.

His little cousin crawled over to give him a hand  : )

and then it was time to get cleaned up.  Too cute!

Enjoy your week.  Thank you for stopping by.

Those socks!! They're so cute and tiny :) The babies are absolutely adorable. Nothing better than seeing a one year old dive into something yummy and messy...unless it's two one year olds!

Very cute photos of your grandchildren, but what I really want is the recipe for that delicious looking cake! Yum!! Good for you for canning peaches--I'm totally impressed with your industry.
