I've been blog silent for a long time.
I've got an excuse.
See, there was this afghan that ate my blog...
My beautiful niece Bethany was expecting her first child on April 26.
Being the loving aunt that I am, I began crocheting a baby afghan in October.
I worked on it.
I really did.
But Bethany's baby shower in early March crept up faster than the afghan's finish date.
Rather than blog, I got to work.
I'm not kidding when I say that every spare minute went to the construction of Baby Sammy's blankie.
I finished it the day before the shower:
Bethany liked it!
Someone else also showed up right on time.
Samuel Edward was born ON HIS DUE DATE last Sunday, April 26, 2009.
He's looking none too happy about it:

Sweet newborn Sammy slumbers wearing the hat I also crocheted for him:
Less than a week after his birth, mommy and baby went to their first mothers group "with Sammy on the outside" as my niece would say:
Now you know the whole truth.
The afghan ate my blog, but my great nephew Sammy makes it all worth while!
