I have a few new photos of little baby Dorothy!! She seems to be growing so fast already. Being a new granny I keep trying to knit... I guess I have it in my head that that is what grannies are supposed to do. Well I did a little sweater that I am not at all happy with and I really doubt that Dorothy Grace will ever get the chance to wear it. It is almost beyound saving. That will teach me to get a pattern from the internet that once you get all the major parts done and when you are ready to call it quits that is where the pattern calls it quits..... Guess the person that posted it got tired of all the knitting and writing. I am at the button band now and the pattern basically says to crochet a band. Well I tried that..... didn't look right.... So tried knitting one..... didn't look right again. So found another sweater pattern(a proper one this time) and it still doesn't look right. I think I am gonna call it quits with this one and start on another one. I did go into a buying spurt of baby girl sweater patterns on ebay. So I have at least a half a dozen to choose from. I did however crochet up some cute little things for Dorothy and I hope they fit!!!

Brian and I are trying the Mediterranean diet to try and get healthy here. So I have been searching the internet for some nice recipes to try. I did tell him that there is very little red meat on this diet. So we will see how it goes. If anyone out there is interested if you do a google search on Mediterranean diets and the recipes at the Mayo Clinic look pretty good. I tried a lovely pasta recipe yesterday so far and the day before we had my version of a Med Fish dish. Cod with a tomato sauce served with butter bean mash. I think I am gonna like this diet as I love pasta and tomato sauces.
Here are some pics of things I have been upto lately if your interested. Some crafty and some cooking and some of the boys......
