~ 'guardian grandmas' donations ~

I've received 2 more 'guardian grandmas' donations, and here they are.  The first one is from Akhila - she sent along a stripey blankie and 6 little hats.  Aren't they just adorable?  I love the flowers that she added to the hats.  Thank you very much Akhila.  ♥ to you.  



The second donation is from Liz E.  She sent along two precious baby blankies.  I really love the pink and brown one.  But then again, I really love the pastel ripple one too.  They're both very pretty.  Thanks so much Liz.  ♥ to you also.

  1. Aww, isn't that fabulous. I've been so busy lately to do any work for this project (owning your own business can be very time consuming... it gets in the way of my crochet time, hahaha!) and I am so pleased to see that so many are still working hard on it! Keep up the good work girls!

  6. Lovely, lovely donations...all of them! :) I recognize the yarn in the first two...pretty sure it's the "Lucy Pack" colors of Stylecraft, I think it is. Luscious colors and nice yarn to work with. That's what I used for my third grandchild's afghan. :)

    1. Hi Penny. That is the coolest clock - it would be perfect to hang in a craft room. I would love to have one. (How does it tell time though?) :)

    2. I know..right? :) It must have a battery operated clock mechanism in the back or something. I tried to find out more about it but didn't get anywhere..waaa! It would be so cool in your pretty little craft room.
      Hope you day is going well, penny x

  10. I'm baaaaack! haha... I just Googled "clocks that knit" and found a few links for you. The first is a video. Seems they were invented in Norway and it takes a year, 365 days to make a scarf. wow!

    1. Pretty, pretty cool. But what I meant though, was how can you tell what time it is? There are no numbers on the front. Unless I'm missing something. :)

  11. So glad some of us grandmas are busy for the cause. I have been goofing off here and trying to figure out what kind of baby blanket to do to send, well go to my blog and see what I did instead...shame on me.
