Baby Blanket

Morning ladies! I have to be honest and tell you guys that I've hit a bit of a creative block! Very frustrating! I need to get going on my Bella cards but I just can't pull something out of the hat. I'm still working on it but I hope that it gets MUCH better soon...like today!

Although I don't have a card to show you today I do have something else to show you. One of my neighbors is having (actually I think she may have had) a baby boy. She was due on the 25th and there has been lots of activity at her house the last few days. Anyway, my other neighbor, Angela, and I decided to make her something for the baby. We went to Craft Warehouse to maybe make a quilt (I have limited experience with quilts but figured I could do it.). Well, what we found was a very cute blanket that didn't require quilting just sewing together. I figured I could do that...and I did. Angela tied the little ties on the front, which I did not want to do and I cut and sewed the material together. It should have been a very easy project to sew but the really soft, silky fabric we chose for the back...yeah...it move around like crazy. So, we have a blanket for them but it is a bit puckery. I figure the baby won't care and maybe his parents will over look it. It is very soft and I would have loved receiving something like this from a neighbor so I hope that they like it!

So, I'll be trying to be creative today with Bella and hopefully I'll have something to show you tomorrow. Tonight is the mother-daughter banquet at church. I was invited by a friend of mine to go but it seems that she will be out of town helping out her daughter who just had a baby girl. I've invited Scott's girlfriend to go with me so it will be just Trista and I and about 100 other ladies with their daughters. Oh, and the men of the church help out so I'm having Jon and Kyler go and help as well. They aren't too thrilled about it but they will survive won't they? :0)

***Also, Alex, I received your e-mail but I get an error when I try to respond. Please try me again!***

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Cute blanket! I'm no good in the "sewing" department!! I just stick to paper crafts! Good luck with your creative block. I hit that lull many times but when it comes back it seems to come back full force!
