Here She Be




Posting this for all the "crafties" out there....

I designed and knitted this baby afghan with the tree of life, the rocks of Newfoundland, a lighthouse for safe harbour and dreams of a life surrounded by flowers with diamonds for her parents.

  1. Fantabulous! A family heirloom to carry dreams from generation to generation.

    I love the edging round the frame... now to work out how you did it!

    About 50 hours I figure, the flower edging takes a while - I disciplined myself to do an hour a day on it after breakfast, it is a form of meditation.

  6. What a creative woman you are! How can a child fail to thrive with such a blanket to protect it?

  7. A treasure for a lifetime. I have items my grandmother and my mother made and once in awhile I hold them. I have the skills but haven't used them in years. You have me thinking. It most definitely can be a calming hour a day. No hurry right.

    Thanks for showing the picture of the final product. Gorgeous.

    so do I but one never knows when it leaves one's hands and there are some who never appreciate any kinds of handiwork but value stuff from Baby Gap much more highly.

    I wonder what kind of plot? Maybe a story down the generations of the blanket inhabitors?

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
