If a task has once begun...


This blanket is six years in the making, you know, long before I even knew what getting married was, or how miserable pregnancy would truly be. But six years ago, as a sophomore in college, I saw this pattern and knew someday a child of mine would have to have it.

Now, six years later, thanks to my dear mother's help, it’s finally finished and ready for use. I’d like to make you all believe that this blanket is just so intricate and detailed that it truly did take six years to make, but that’s only partly true for a less than perfect sewer like myself. 

Back in September when I went home to Utah for a few days, I took this blanket with me, plopped it on the kitchen table and declared to my mom that she had until May to complete it. Once she realized what I was actually saying, she gladly accepted the offer to finish my task for me. After all, she helped me start it, too, and quite frankly, she's probably done more on it than I have because I always got stumped. It's tricky I tell you! 

But now it's done and ready to be loved by a child of mine, and we still have four months to spare. Leave it to the busiest woman I know to be ahead of the game like that. 

Thanks, mom for helping me finally finish this blanket. Your grandson to be is going to LOVE it, or so we hope!
