To Market, To Market

I'm in a whirlwind of activity here...
Knitting needles, crochet hooks 
are flying in an absolute storm around me
as fast as I can make them go!
On September 12, 13 & 14
I will have a booth at the 
Craft Faire
at our local
Pumpkin Festival,
along with my Monday night knitting girls :-)
We are so excited!
Anyone local can look for us under my business name ~
Front Porch Knits.
I had these darling tags custom made on an Etsy Shop.
There will of course be plenty of Pumpkin items for sale.
These are made from the Knit Picks patterns ~
Clove {crocheted}
Spice {knitted}
But you know me...
I can't show up without plenty of sweet little baby items as well.
Some covered baby hangers...
A pile of  baby hats...
The pattern for these can be found right 
And some booties for precious piggies.

These are just a sampling of my wares.
I will try to squeeze out the time to show some more before it all goes.
In the mean time,
Mr. Parker,
{look how fast they grow!}
my 3 month old grandson,
is keeping me busy 
Wednesday through Friday,
as his Mommy has returned to work.
A week ago Tuesday we had another new baby in our family.
My sister is now a Grammy for the first time.
Elijah Wade 
born August 18
weighing a whopping 
10 lbs. 6 oz. !!!
And my daughter Hilary is expecting her baby boy in a week or so!
It's a real good thing I love to make baby items :-)

Happy Holiday Weekend to All of You,
God Bless,

Summer Days

Hello There Everybody!
I have been away for 
I don't know where the time has gone.
In May I became Grammy again to this 
Cute Little Fella
who is pictured here with his proud 
Big Sister
So this is one reason {or two actually!}
I have been kept fairly busy all Summer ~
and off the computer :-)
Chelsea returns to work next week and I will have
Mr. Parker 3 days a week.
Then in September
my daughter
is due to have a 
The Grammy Business
is in full swing here!
I have missed all of you however
and plan to get back into the magical 
Land of Blog.
I have crocheted and knit
it is hard to know where to begin.
What with the baby mania
{in about a week my sister will by Grammy for the first time also, to a BOY as well}
plus I am getting ready for a big Craft Fair
in the middle of September.

The Pot Holders are a current
Custom Order
on my 
Etsy Shop.
The beautiful embroidered tablecloth was a gift from my
 Mother in Law.
She bought it in 
32 years ago 
and decided she no longer needs it.
Lucky me!
It fits my dining room table perfectly :-)))

Happy, Happy Day to You ALL!
I hope & pray you are all well.
