Sorry for the long time not posting...

Well, it has been a while.  My husband and I still have health issues but we take one day at a time and try to make the best of it.  It has been a busy and fast Spring and Summer--I wonder where all that time went.  Our son, daughter-in-law, and our grandson were here from California for a couple of weeks and that was so much fun.  Noah is now three and so cute and smart!  I am going to share some pictures from our place and what I have been doing.  I hope you enjoy.
This is a scene around our backyard patio and fence.

A baby blanket our daughter-in-law wanted crocheted for a friend's baby.  The mom
love cupcakes.
Our son wanted me to knit a Dr. Who baby blanket for a friend.  I had made my son
and the mom to be a Dr. Who scarf when they were in college and he thought she
would appreciate a Dr. Who blanket. After I finished this one and mailed it to California, our son 
said he sure would love a Dr. Who blanket.  I told him that I was glad he was old enough and 
ugly enough that he wants would not hurt him.  But, guess what, I am in the process of
making him a blanket, but doing it in squares.
The squares are all finished--I just have to sew them together and I hate the finishing of any
Hitchhiker scarf made with homespun yarn.
The socks on the left are the Mystik Spiral Socks and the pattern can be found on Ravelry.  The other socks are just a vanilla sock done with Knit Picks yarn.
This is knitted with yarn from Wild Hare Fiber Studios and the pattern is Zuzu Petals.  I did this for an autism awareness knit-a-long.

This is Mrs. Bakery Bear, the pattern can be found on Ravelry.  Our grandson and his friend took her to the park to ride on the rides.  I was entering the photo in a contest--it didn't win, but the kids had a great time.  I guess this is enough to show you for now.  I am still busy knitting some sweaters and hats for two cute little girls.  I also have our son's blanket to finish.
