There’s a Baby Girl On The Way!

After a little break from baby arrivals, cousins RCL and NL recently announced that they’re expecting a BABY GIRL! Bean (RL) has always been the honorary third sister, so you can imagine how excited I am to see her have her first little girl.  Every year, for as long as I can remember, mom and…

It’s a Suprise! Neutral Crochet Quilt

When JDB and JB announced they were expecting, naturally, the entire family was over the moon about the little one to be and I, immediately began envisioning my next crochet project.  After months of nightly crocheting for Baby Olivia and Baby K last winter and spring, I had to take a short hiatus  (my hands…
