              The Summer of Color Week 2

     This week is all about mint chocolate chip! I first met our lovely hostess Kristin while participating with a group of artists creating artwork from the workshop section of a wonderful new book by Shona Cole "The Artistic Mother." This project was about making name plaques. 

It hangs a little wonky but that's o.k Thats what makes it hand
made. Thanks to this prompt I finally got all the grandchildren's photos together.

                  There's a New Girl in Town!

Back on April 24 we welcomed a new granddaughter to our family. Vanessa became grandchild number 5. My son Ken and his wife Erin now have three children. Big brother Dylan is 13 and big sister Cora is 15 months! 

   This is the quilt that I made for her. Love the colors. 

   Of course every new baby needs to have her own new sweater and blanket set to come home in. I love to knit for babies. I love the colors and knitting is perhaps the most relaxing of all my hobbies.

   I am such a lucky Nana!
