TWiP: Boston, Blankets, and Babies!

Last week was jam-packed, and I took a lot of images, so I’m just going to muzzle myself now and get right into it 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365 📷: 2017 189/365 – The young cousins came over today, and pulled all kinds of things out of our long-neglected dress-up trunk, including this hat, which is currently being modeled by my own little minion.

365 📷: 2017 190/365 – We sometimes have huge messes to clean up after a party, but this isn’t bad at all.



365 📷: 2017 191/365 – I started a new blanket last night. I’m six little circles in. I really hope I can crank this out quickly enough that I don’t lose enthusiasm before I finish – it’s always a risk with something as big as a blanket!

365 📱: 2017 195/365 – I’m glad these guys are such good sports about cming to Gather Here with me every year. They’re even holding my fabric while I finish shopping 🙂 [Taken at Gather Here.]
