Crafties and Cuteness

I finished it a little over a week ago, but I hadn't posted a picture yet of the finished blanket of Grandma Verella's scraps. This is the 3rd one from her stash and this one is staying at our house!!! This is the back...Also a while ago I finished Paisley's knitted Twirly Skirt, but I hadn't posted a picture of that either. The first time she wore it she broke out in a huge rash at church and I was so worried it was from the skirt of course (dang it! Hours of knitting down the drain....) but it wasn't, it turned out to be the roseola virus and she wore it last night to a wedding reception with no rash anywhere to be found! Yeah! Also started and finished this last week is Beck's "Marty zebra and Lightning McQueen" blanket. I started doing churn pattern blocks that I just learned at my quilting class held at our church and they took longer than I wanted, so I only did 3 and finished with some sort of log cabin pattern for the outsides.I had to piece together a lot of the back because it was late and I was NOT going back to the store for more black flannel! But I Like how it turned out anyways...And I added my own little "label!" How cheesy wonderful is that?? I LOVE it! Now I just need to find a cute girly label to add to Pais's blanket I made her a while back.This is Beck from last night when we went to a wedding reception, and I am not going to take a picture of him this morning because he is sick and pale and throw uppy. Poor kid. He's thrown up 5 times already this morning. No fever or chills, as far as I can tell. I think maybe he just got too much sun yesterday??? So him and I have to miss the baby blessing of baby Samantha in Tri-cities this morning. Hoping that he is healed by morning, so that we can go on our trip to Forks, Washington and Vancouver and the Zoo and then on to the cabin for Ashton Family Week. We will be gone for 2 weeks! Paisley got to go with her dad to the baby blessing, and her cuteness needed to have her picture taken before they took off...

Your quilts are beautiful. Hope you get to leave today for your vacation. I put something in the mail for you - hopefully it's not melted when you get home.
