Busy Hands and A Patient Man

Yesterday we were out and about running errands, one of which included a yarn shop stop (say it three times fast!).  Bridget, the owner, who is a lovely gal, was helping me choose some buttons.  Before you know it we got to gabbing (I've been known to gab), and I was in there longer than I planned.  I was telling her about my crochet motif wrap, and decided to duck out to the car and fetch it. I think the hubby got his hopes up that I was all set, but had to wait another several minutes. He's one patient guy :)

My hands have not been idle.......I've been finishing up some things around here....and it is delightful! I enjoy the whole process but the best part may be the "putting away" when I finally get all done.  I love the feeling of accomplishment, not to mention the (very) small dent it makes in the stash.

 Here's the little plaid jacket I made for a friend at work (1st grandchild). No time for pants/blankie but she loved it all the same.

 I started this little bonnet many years just needed the ties added.  Much cuter in person.
 It has a little band under the ruffle to keep baby's head warm :)
 Little capris and "swing top" to match the sweater below.
I have one more of these sweaters planned (in pink), and then I'm moving on to a new pattern.  This is such an easy project to crochet......I've been "hooked" hahaha.
And I finished my little accent pillow.....all made with scrap yarn.  I just love it.....and I'm glad I added the open ruffle.

We still have lots of white stuff on the ground around here and it was purty cold last week! I haven't heard what's in store for this week yet.....I hope lots of SUNshine!

Have a safe, happy and healthy day :)
