Knitting and reading bliss

Update, my mom is home and getting healthy. The initial test came back fine. It appears she has an upper GI tract problem that is causing some bleeding that wasn't helped by her blood-thinner. I am so grateful for all your prayers and well-wishes. 

I have been happily knitting away on my Butterfly Baby Blanket. 
I love the way it looks.

I also finished reading my latest book, The Oysterville Sewing Circle by Susan Wiggs.
The Oysterville Sewing Circle
  I really liked this book. I had trouble putting it down. It starts with a few sad occurrences, but it becomes a very uplifting story with a nice ending. 

I put a few stitches on Jingle this week. I started the last word " Ye". I really want to finish it soon.

Spring is here and the bunnies have returned to our back yard. This one just wouldn't look my way.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I think I will try to finish all the red stitching on Jingle today and possibly make a few more mask so that everyone has two.

Thanks for stopping by!
