My Momma is Amazing!!

My mom is a crochet wizard!  She is always making blankets for someone. She has made blankets big enough for king-size beds, and blankets small enough for my dog Tillman, and her dog Desi (RIP), both of whom weigh in the 10-12 pound range.  Her specialty though, is baby blankets.  She basically makes a very large Granny square, with a pretty border. If you are in our family, and have had a baby, then somewhere you have a blanket hand-made by my mother.  She even makes blankets for other people....meaning they buy the yarn, she makes the blanket, and they give it as a gift to someone else. 

She surprised me at Christmas with a present for Baby Jacob...and he hasn't even been born  yet!



And then she showed up at Quinn's birthday party with another blanket for Baby Jacob!



She made both blankets in about two weeks, each.  And the pictures don't do either of them justice.

(And just in case you are wondering, Quinn also got two baby blankets when he was born....a solid blue one, and an orange and white one.)

So, if you are in need of a blanket, just let me know!!  And one of these days, Mom, we've got to take time to teach me this stitch...I just can't figure it out!

Thanks for the kind words. I make these blankets out of love for my grandchildren, family and friends.

What a talented mom you have!!! The blankets are beautiful!

By the way - someone answered your question about First Communion dresses in the comments section of my blog. Sorry I never got around to doing it.
