What I have Crocheted Plus A Baby Bib Pattern

I have not been doing very much crocheying lately but at Christmas 2014 I made some hats here they are:
Police Box from Snappy Tots Ravelry Store

Star Wars Beanie pattern from Jen Spears on
My grand kids loved them. Then I made 3 hats for a Christmas basket

I also made coffee cozies for the Kids and used a download pattern for the cups template at frogging

In Feb our granddaughter was born and I made her this hat and blanket my patterns. Will share the patterns later.

Last I made a baby set for a friends baby boy whose daddy likes the Green Lantern
I used  the pattern from for the baby boat booties with some change. I used World's Best Diaper Cover pattern from Boomer Beanies on
The bib is my own pattern and I am adding this pattern here.
As always there maybe mistakes but I try not to have too many. This is my pattern feel free to make but do not claim as your pattern. If you make this send me a picture.

Cherish the Moments

I wanted to post a quick blog to say I will try to get back to weekly blogs next week. 5 and a half weeks ago my Dad died unexpectantly and suddenly.  We had just been an hour before with him and Mom and an hour later he was gone. Shock is probably the word that best describes where we were besides devastated and sad. The one thing we know is that he is in heaven and we will see him again.

We have hope, peace, and comfort from the Lord and assurance that this is not the end.

One lesson we can learn from his sudden death is to cherish every moment, spend time with the ones you love and make sure you are ready to meet the Lord.

More next week with new patterns to share
