Puffed Baby Blanket & Pattern

Well, well, look who’s finally decided to show up. :) I’ve been incognito for some time now and lots has happened since my last post.. most of it unpleasant so I won’t get into it (save you all some tears). Along with life changing events, I did do a bit of crafty stuff as well… A baby blanket for friends. It’s their very first baby and it’s going to be a girl! Super exciting news. Here’s it is..

  1. Glad you’re back and sorry the last part of your year hasn’t been awesome. I was just thinking about you and how we need to sew some leotards/swimsuits here soon–let’s think warm thoughts.

    Hope it is going better for you.

  2. Oh Renee, I am so sorry that you have been having a bad time! I know that is why I disappeared. If you ever need to talk about it, I am here!

    I love the pink and grey combination of your blanket! It is adorable! I love the flowers you added to it!

    Here’s to a great new year for both of us!

  3. Missing you…hope things are looking brighter. ((((Renee))))
