Life Lately...

 Hello Dears
It's been a while since I've written a post or finished a project for that matter.  My head has been fuzzy and I feel terribly disorganized.  I've been trying to fall back into my normal daily life but I'm just not quite there.  I still count the days that have gone by sine my dad passed.  I just feel that my thoughts are scattered and it's hard for me to focus. I've been sleeping a lot.  More than usual.  I go to bed early and I wake up late.  But maybe that's just all part of the process.  

I'm getting there slowly. 
I'm adjusting and coping with each day that passes.
I finally managed to finish this little romper.  It feels like I've been working on it forever.  I started this in early September when I went to Kansas to visit my dad.  I thought it would be an easy quick project but with everything that was going on it just laid in my basket without ever getting picked up. 
Once I came home I didn't have much interest in knitting or crocheting.  But I did pick up my needles every now and then when I wanted to give my mind a break from the thoughts and memories that consumed me. And little by little, this lil romper came together.
 I enjoyed making this so much that I'm now working on my second one.
 I used an ivory color worsted weight cotton yarn I found at HL.  It's so very soft.  I thought it would be perfect for a baby garment. I added a lilac flower for the sake of the photo but really this could be for either a boy or a girl.

The pattern is one I purchased called Deea Baby Romper.
You can find the pattern here.

The weather has been so nice and pleasant here lately.  We are still enjoying warm weather here in New Mexico.  I'm hoping it lasts a little longer.  I'm not ready for the cold temperatures just yet. 

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:19

  6. A beautiful little romper, I love the pattern. I seem to be the opposite Becca, since my dear nephew ended his life I work more. I am making, baking and creating all day to take my mind off it. Sending you a hug and know that you are in my prayers.
