Flannel Blankets for sale

Hi All,

Well, it’s been a tough couple of weeks for me.  You know how one little idea turns into a grand project? Well, that’s what has happened to me.  A small garden project geared to use up left over stone has turned into a mega yard/garden re-do consuming my life for the past 2 1/2 weeks.  My body is broken, my mind exhausted, my enthusiasm depleted and I just want this to go away!!!  I don’t have pics yet…I want to wait until everything is completely done. And I didn’t think to take before pics as this wasn’t intended to be a total makeover.  However, you know how one thing leads to another to another……

In the meantime, I have managed to get a bit of crafting done. First are 7 flannel baby blankets that I made up.  So many have asked about the blanket I made for my new granddaughter, Demi.  As luck would have it, the flannel fabric was on sale for 70% off so why not purchase 24 yards!!!  I was able to complete 7 blankets which I am offering for sale, each at a fair cost of $20 plus postage, only because I was able to get such a deal on the fabric.  If anyone is interested, just email me at abitofmelac@yahoo.com and I can give you more details. All are two-sided, some with “I Love Grandma” and some with “I Love Mommy and Daddy”, both boy or girl.

Flannel Baby Blankets 8-2013I also made up this wacky cross stitch piece, inspired by a piece given to me by my friend, Robin.  I saw this on Pinterest and made up my own pattern.  Mine is for when I get frustrated and mad.  Robin’s is for when I’m thinking!!!

My piece:

XS plaque 8-2013

Robin’s piece:Robin 12-2013


And I can’t forget an up-dated pic of baby Demi.  She’s really developing her own personality and still captures the command of all 5 adults here.  Maybe she is why we don’t get much done around the house LOL.  We’re too busy still watching and gauking!

Anyway, I hope to finish up with my garden work by this weekend.  And since it will be hot and humid here in Boston for the remainder of the week, I plan to get some ‘inside’ stuff done.

Take care,
