Latest Project

Yesterday I finished the baby blanket I had been working on for this baby. Hooray!
I have made a couple of these for my sister, and sister in laws when they have had babies. When I started this one Ashelynn asked me if I would make her one. When she was born I didn't know how to make anything so she doesn't have a blanket like this. Since then with the help of my mom we have made her some other blankets just not one like this. I asked her what she would do with a baby blanket now and she said she would use it for her toys. I told her I would learn how to make a big normal quilt and make her one later. Hopefully I'll get to that this summer if this next baby is a good little one.
This blanket is a chenille blanket. If anyone is curious how I made it let me know and I will post the steps I took. One thing about this particular blanket is that when I chose the fabrics for the back side, you are never quite sure how it is going to look in the end. Once all the colors frayed it didn't quite match the front fabric like it used too. So I really like the front and I like the back, but I'm not so sure how well they go together! Oh well, its cute anyway! At least I think so!

So cute. My kids don't get things like that from me, since I'm not so crafty. You are awesome.
