The Ribbon is Changed for a Royal Baby Boy!

Yesterday was very exciting for the world to find out a Royal baby was born a prince! So the green ribbon on the new release Anticipation sampler is changed to vintage blue lace.

Welcome, little bundle of joy!

If you would like a digital copy, this is available now in the Etsy shoppe, Feathersinthenest!

I also have completed a baby giftie project for another baby boy due in 3 weeks.

The Basketweave stitch on the left. The "All Washed Up" pattern from Ravelry (free pattern) in the middle top, and a garter stitch on the right.

I really enjoyed the pattern, "All Washed Up". The designer is Jill Arnusch.

Very soft, I Love This Cotton by Hobby Lobby in the colorway Aqua used.

On to finish 2 other projects today, along with housecleaning and such today. It started out bright and sunny this morning but now gray and looking like rain. Again. I've never seen so much rain in one Summer in my life.

Well certainly appears to be a good stitching and reading day so methinks I need to hurry and get the chores done so I can kick back and relax with the needles and watch the Royal news.

I have started planning menus for a week; therefore helping to reduce costs when I go grocery shopping for the week. So far, working well. Do you have a homestead menu for the week?  Does it save money?

Looking at the laundry, I think I need a laundry menu plan each day. :0

Just to leave a note of encouragement for today~~~~~~~

Till later,
