Works in Progress.... Mine & Mother Nature's

First, here is a pic of my latest work in progress (otherwise known as a WIP, in crafting terms). A former coworker/friend of DH's and the friend's wife are having another baby (this makes her 4th, his second). They're not sure whether they're having a boy or a girl. Fortunately I've got a boyish afghan done (stashed away for a rainy-day), but I'm in need of a girly-colored afghan. And this is it. I'm barely begun, and seeing as how M&B will probably be parents again next week, it probably won't be done in time. Also seeing as how it's a summer baby, I don't know that I'm going to make the usual hat-mitts-bootie set that I usually do to go along with the afghan. I may pop a couple of crocheted wash-cloths in the gift-bag with the afghan. Then he's got a current coworker who's due with a little girl in Oct. who I've got to make an afghan (and hat/bootie/mitt set) for as well. But I've got time to work on that. First things first, get this afghan done for M&B.
This second picture is certainly not the best of pictures. But, this is a small stretch of my little sugar-snap-pea plot. We had 3 straight days of rain, which really benefited our plants. My peas are coming up, and if you can tell, along the line of dark soil there (potting soil that I covered over the peas with, as I didn't have any quality top-soil) there are a number of pea-plant shoots peeking up through the dirt. There are also weeds at the bottom of the pic, but please ignore them. *grin* Anyway, this is one of Mother Nature's many WIPs, and one of the few I got to help with. More pictures will be taken as the plants get bigger and more visible before the camera.
Just thought I'd share a little bit of the works-in-progress taking place at my house over the last week.
Have a Blessed Day!

Oh, the colors are beautiful. I just love the set you sent Lyndon! Often, when people have a child after number one, you get less homemade (heirloom!) gifts for the second, third, etc. I will save Lyndon's set for a child he may have one day. The woman who is having the fourth will be so appreciative of your lovely gift!

You are such a sweet person!
