Sugar and Spice!

And everything nice, that's what little girls are made of! Every newborn baby girl should have a pretty new baby blanket!
I have just completed crocheting a new blanket for a special little Angel who will be arriving in a few short months. 
Pretty purples, pinks, blues and greens.
Such a soft snuggle blankie! ❤️

Pretty scalloped edging......

I used Hobby Lobby's own brand of yarn. It's one of my favorites! I made one big granny square. It's simple and works up quite quickly.
I am sure the new parents and baby will be happy! :)

My daughter is having her heart checkup this week. Please keep her in your prayers. We never take for granted how well she has been doing all these years since her open heart surgery when she was born. She is a blessing to us, and God has been so very good to us. She has been doing well for almost 19 years and We pray it continues❤️

Pinwheel piecing

My purple and green pinwheel piecing is complete! Here are my squares laid out on the floor before sewing them together. I think they came out sooo pretty and I am very pleased. I will be putting one or two borders along the edges to make my quilt bigger. 

I want to wish you all a very happy 4th of July! We will be spending this evening celebrating with friends and neighbors, good food and fireworks. We are ever so thankful for our military Son and his service to our great country. We miss him so much! 
I baked a bunch of chocolate chip cookies for this evening and also chocolate dipped strawberries
