Happy and Fabulous on Friday

Doesn't take much to make me happy ... two blankets and a cross stitch in the hopper.  The needle and hook busily moving about, cheerfully taking turns.  I'm happy.

Dug into the stash to find the makings for
I love the combination of baby colors, so sweet, so soft looking.

Zigzag Shells Baby Afghan

Did pick up a few skeins, but couldn't resist, have to have a babyghan of of brown, blue and cream ... and, of course, in my all time favorite -  the round ripple.
                                                       Both for the little bundle of blue.

And last but certainly not least.

Handwork makes for such a sense of accomplishment as well as the enjoyment and relaxation it provides.  Thanks to all those who so generously provide such hours in their generous offerings of patterns and tutorials.
