I recently started working again as a caregiver and FINALLY feel like a normal person again. I'm not working many hours, but I get the pleasure of taking care of people and coming home feeling like I've made a difference.
June 30th I got a call from my dad telling me that my Aunt Karen was in the hospital and it wasn't looking good. My cousin Kassie texted me and said she needed me. So I drove up to Longview and was there until my aunt took her last breath around 2am. I feel so blessed to have been a part of her life even though it was just a TINY bit of time.
I'm still working on wedding stuff. 42 more days lol. Oh how I wish I could post pictures of my wedding dress right now. lol
And I've also become an Auntie again. My little sister had her baby girl on July 5th. She is super cute and has her moms orange-red hair.
Here are a few of the crochet projects I've done recently.
This is a baby blanket that I worked from corner to corner rather then side to side... interesting, but I'm not sure I'll do it again. It has a green edge too.
This is a baby dress and bonnet I found in this shop on Etsy.com. The diaper cover is of my own creation... I might write up a pattern some day.
This is another baby blanket I'm working on. I found it on Ravelry.com, but you can find the pattern here. I had trouble with the pattern when I made my first blanket with it. If you need help figuring it out please let me know.
