Assembly... it's a tough job.


I do so love this serious little face.  His Momma said he was very intent on assembling his bugs.  It's hard work!  =)


I also received photos of the Big Boys wearing their Puppy Hats.

 
Sure do miss these two... As they told me on FaceTime earlier... their house is a LONG way from mine.  (And, they hardly have time to talk... the iPhone is needed for games! Busy lives.)
 
 
Last week, Laura helped me put the 96 Noro blocks in order to assemble into an afghan. You would think it would be easy to just randomly choose a block and join it with another... not so much. There is just a little too much OCD livin' here for me not to just freak out! It is so nice to have friends who can help you when you hit a wall! The assembly has begun! 
 

And... I started another assembly project this weekend.  I'm to the point I need at least one more pair of hands... Can you guess what it is?

 
A new chandelier.  I hope to finish getting this together and hung sometime this week! 
 
And, that's the story of ASSEMBLY around here!  Ha!

The little boys are so cute with their puppy hats! I like the intent look about " the bug" assembly too.

I love your afghan . . . BEAUTIFUL! I look forward to seeing it assembled. Not sure what you are assembling in front of the fireplace unless it is a fireplace screen cover. And you are making a chandelier . . . is there any thing you aren't able to make/create! Such a talent you are.

Easter Blessings dear friend . . ,

Roo looks as focused as you probably do working on your chandy. Hope it goes well! I see now why you wanted to plan the squares for the afghans. And it will be beautiful. Love that missing tooth pic! They are getting big. Those hats would have come in handy for littlest's puppy dog party. :-)

I love the colors for that afghan...it's going to be gorgeous!

Cute little boys! Those hats are awesome!

Shug said...

Gorgeous Chandelier!! Can't wait to see picture of it hanging! These little guys are sure growing...and they are so, so cute. Could it be that OCD is contagious? His little bug project looks like it could turn out to be adorable. Hope you get to see them at Easter

The crochet, the chandelier, the boys, everything is so gorgeous! But I have to wonder, why do little boys like bugs so much?

Can't wait to see your finished afghan. The colors are so pretty. Your grandsons are so cute. I love that you FaceTime with them. My grandchildren live 3 hours away and I love to text and FaceTime with them, too.

You've got a lot going on this week! Love that afghan it is going to be beautiful. Your little men are just beautiful little angels. Their clear eyes and beautiful skin - I bet you could just sit all day and snuggle with them! Also love the new chandelier - how beautiful!

Dewena said...

He looks so smart! I bet he is.

How exciting to be assembling a new chandelier! Can't wait to see it up. I have a board on Pinterest I call A Bouquet of Glass where I pin chandeliers. I must pin yours when you show it!

karen said...

in the future when I have grands (If??) and they live far away, I'm emailing you on a "how to" to keep involved in their lives. You do it so wonderfully!! That chandelier looks daunting :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Your grandboys look so cute in the puppy hats you made them, Tanna!

Your afghan will be fabulous when completed--the colors are so vibrant.

Your new chandelier is also beautiful--looks like Venetian glass!

Wishing you and your family a very Happy and blessed Easter!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

The boys both look adorable in their hats! And I love the look of concentration on Roo's face. :)
Can't wait to see the afghan put together!
Happy Easter to you!
