As exciting as it is to start a new project, it's very rewarding to finish existing ones!
First, my second grandson of the summer made his appearance last week. Mr. Peyton James weighed in at a healthy 9lbs 14ozs and is 24 inches long. Mom, baby, big brother and dad are all doing well.

I often listen to audiobooks while knitting/crocheting/etc. Some months ago I started listening to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. It was a very interesting book with lots of twists. I was very disappointed in the ending, but it's marked off of my list of things to do!

Next on the agenda was to combine the Warm Up America squares into 2 more blankets. I then delivered them to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Again, a very rewarding feeling even if I was carrying 6 blankets on the hottest day of the year! In addition to these 3, I'd crocheted 2 and knitted 1 blanket to donate.
While my sewing machine was on, I decided to fix a body pillow for my daughter Stefani. Afterwards I realized it's now about half of it's original size (it's been "fixed" several times) but she loves it and if you look close you see that's her hugging it in her sleep!
