Hi my faithful followers,

Many many thank you's for your lovely words and prayers for Boston. Shortly after I posted the 2nd suspect was caught and now we wait for answers and justice. We will all continue to pray for the injured and all families involved. Boston really came together and it was so inspiring to see.
                                                  "BOSTON STRONG"

I had two daughters who were flying in and out of Boston on Saturday so I was more then a bit cautious and apprehensive. But thank the Lord all went well and now for a bit I feel a little bit more at ease. We will be flying on Saturday so I'm having faith all will be fine. You just don't know what lies ahead, so we have to cherish every moment and be grateful. That's what I try to do.

Ok, now I have to move on and show you what I've been up to with my needles. My oldest granddaughter "Abby" just turned "7".  I can't believe that little one is 7. She is really getting into her American Girl doll now, so you know what that means. Yes, sweater, clothes made by "knitting nannie".  I have made so far a hooded sweater for "Abigail" the doll and one is on the needles for a matching sweater for Abby. Then I will made a skirt and top and pants! So much fun to have grandchildren!❤!

Here is the hooded cardi in a lovely purple with pompom yarn around hood and sleeves. *please note a nose in the picture, Jack just has to be part of everything :  )

Next is "Fudge" the bunny to try on the hoodie, I don't have the dolly here. *please note a nose again!

It fits and isn't Fudgie cute!

A close up, I think an American Girl doll will be cute too!

Thanks for popping in my friends.

                            My own Daffi's and the only flowers in the yard so far. I love them

            Next project plant my old fashion flower seeds. I just adore these oldies but goodies!

As always, I love your comments and visits. Thanks in advance for popping in. I will be back soon and then away for a week.



  1. Hi Robin. I did not realize that you are from Boston! Your fear must have been through the roof. I know what you mean when your chicks are traveling. When 911 happened, our daughter was in Idaho, and scheduled to fly home. I wanted to get in the car and pick her up myself. It was so scary! I am so thankful they have apprehended the second guy now. My thoughts are with those who have suffered from their actions.
    Your knitted hoody is so darling. Lucky little ones, to be receiving your hand mades.

  2. Thanks Kris, I hope she loves it! Yes, moms worry and have to have a lot of courage and faith!!
    Lived in the Boston area for 32+ years, still feels like home.

  3. How sweet is that little hoodie!! I think Fudgie really suits it. :)
    Jack is so cute!
    Enjoy planting your seeds Robin. :)

  4. Thanks V, I think Fudgie wants to keep it BUT it's spoken for : )

  5. You are the sweetest Grandmother, and it is so good to see that cute nose sneaking into the picture.
    Hugs to you,

  6. That hoodie is the cutest thing ever! I bet my granddaughters would love something like that. I'm sure they'll keep me busy when they visit in July making some crochet things for their dolls. Love that big soft nose. We're having fun at the beach! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  7. Thank goodness they can get back to normality in Boston Robin, what a dreadful time that was. Good to see those needles have been busy Fudgie is such a great model for that cute hooded jacket. Your granddaugher will love it...what a lucky girl she is to have you making clothes for her dolls. Seeing Jack's nose really made me smile...what a softee he is. Happy Wednesday my friend,
