my latest project

This is my latest project on top of keeping my house spotlessly clean so people can come and look at it.
I love making baby quilts! I had a couple of blankets that friends and family made when I was born that I cherished through my life. I had some blankets that friends and family gave to my boys when they were born. I enjoy watching them snuggle up with their blankies, feeling protected in the love that was spent in making them. I like to be able to give blankies so that my nieces and nephews and friends' kids can feel that same love and protection.
Of course, I don't have enough time and energy to make blankets for everyone I know who is having a baby (our ward is seriously a baby factory), but when I am able it is so much fun to do.
This blanket is intended for a friend who after years in the all boys club with me is finally having a girl!!! You can't really tell by the picture, but I tied it with little pink bows all over. So sweet!!

I love that quilt. If you felt a burst of energy it would make a good mini enrichment!
