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.

Fantabulous! A family heirloom to carry dreams from generation to generation.ReplyDelete
I love the edging round the frame... now to work out how you did it!
i'm not a craftie, but i love it..just gorgeousReplyDelete
That is just stunning! How long did it take you?ReplyDelete
I can send you the pattern for this if you wish. And thanks! I love sharing my creations!
Thank you CC!ReplyDelete
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.
What a creative woman you are! How can a child fail to thrive with such a blanket to protect it?ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing the picture of the final product. Gorgeous.
Lovely work, WWW.ReplyDelete
That's one hell of a blanket you've created. You are a talented woman. I hope it becomes a well loved heirloom.ReplyDelete
Lucky Baby! Clever you! Love for the baby and love for Newfoundland knitted together. There must be a play in there somewhere Wise.ReplyDelete

I dream beautiful thoughts for those for whom I knit, born or unborn. :)
I love knitting time, something so awesome and peaceful about it.
Thank you Stan!ReplyDelete
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?
Blogger ate my comment but it is lovely, the design amazing, the baby very lucky. Diamonds for the parents, nice touch!ReplyDelete
