Monday Making

I try to squeeze in time to quilt...
but THIS year has been the year of the waiting room!

The foster baby we've been caring for has a myriad of appointments
and THAT is when I get the most MAKING done.

I knit at his therapy three times a week..
the other appointments that fill my calendar.

I started this scarf on a whim
and WOW...
It's taken me a LONG time to get this far!
It IS the perfect take along.
No thinking...
NO counting...
The pattern is here.
And....As you can see...
my stripes are random.
Some big.
some small.

There are NO stripes at all!!!
I love to "mess with" patterns.

There was some making in my kitchen this week too!
NON-edible carrots....made by my granddaughter.
They look so real!!

what are YOU making this week???


  1. Oh poor baby. Hopefully things are improving on that front. Love the scarf, great color combo.

  2. God bless you all... what worry you must be feeling

  3. Oh boy - those carrots really do look real. Hope the appointments decrease real soon - Hugs

  4. I know I have said it before but that baby is so lucky to have you -

  5. I agree....that is one lucky little guy. Glad that you can take advantage of the waiting time with creativity.

    Those carrots look TOO real. lol

  6. Hope you're little guy is improving, and there have been no more episodes. Thank goodness for knitting!

  7. I like the variations in the stripes.I thought the carrots were real.

  8. You are a saint to take a foster baby. Almost a year ago, my 2.5 year old granddaughter came to live with my son and me. I had seen her only a couple of times. I knew I had a choice; I always have a choice and yet I felt I didn't. I was abused as a child and didn't have a choice, so that's where the feelings started. So, I not only wanted to help her but also I know family comes first and children have no choices. Her mother went to jail on drug related charges. Her mother used drugs and alcohol while pregnant. This sweet little girl has speech and attachment issues. She has a fear of being left. I have no idea what her situation was before she came here. She has changed immensely and we still have miles to go. In October, my son was awarded full permanent custody of her. So, I know what you mean about not having much time to craft. I would not change it for the world. I lost my second husband almost four years ago and never dreamed that God would put love and laughter back in the house in this manner. Those carrots look good enough to eat. You are blessed and a huge blessing, too.
