Baby Hankie Blankie...

I believe I am the slowest blogger ever...but who can keep up with Lori the "wonder blogger".  I only have 5 children, a husband, 3 cats, 1 dog, and neverending laudry.
Anyways, I have been working on a baby hankie blankie for my niece Nikki, who is having a baby, don't know what it is yet.. But I finished the quilt top this morning and had to put it on here.
But first my 5 thankfuls
-  I am thankful if people still read this : )
-  I am thankful for babies, especially other peoples!
-  I am thankful for the warm and beautiful weather we've been having
-  My baby Nathan turned 4 last week, it goes soooo fast.
-  and a late happy birthday to my sister Laurel, who is older than me : )


  1. Love that blanket!! I have never heard of a hankie blankie before, but I sure do love it!
    (and I can see why you'd be looking for projects to do with all that free time you must have!)
    Have a happy day!

  2. adorable blanket!! i have never heard of this either. are those old hankies you have picked up, or new ones?? love the idea for my grandbaby on the way!! thanks for sharing.

  5. Love the blankie!! I can't imagine why you don't have any time to blog ;-0

  6. My SIL just sent me some of her old hankies, she is awaiting the birth of a new grand baby, what a perfect gift to make and give to the new baby!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. I love your hankie blankie!! I bought a lot of hankies at a yard sale and a book about items to make with hankies. I wanted to make a quilt with them. Come on over and join my blog as I've just started:) www.sewcraftykathy.blogspot.com
