Finally my Co-workers Baby Blanket is Completely Finished!!

Today I sewed the satin binding on the baby blanket for my co-worker's little baby boy. Holder was born about 1 month ago, so I wanted to hurry up and finish this blanket before the child is 1 yr old-LOL!!The story behind this blanket is a wonderful one! Unfortunately Holder's great grandmother passed away between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2010. My boss is Holder's grandfather and he brought me all of his Mother-in-Law's knitting needles, crochet hooks, stitch holders, some yarn, etc. I was going through the bag that had the knitting needles in it when I saw a brown paper bag that look extremely old. I opened it up and inside was a baby blanket for a little boy that was started and it was about 30 inches long. I got the idea to complete the blanket for this woman's great-grandson. I'm giving this blanket to his parents tomorrow with a letter inside explaining the story behind this blanket for Holder. I hope Holder treasures this blanket that was started by his great grandmother!

Sherri - the blanket is beautiful. Such a thoughtful thing to do. I'm sure Holder will appreciate it as he grows up.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
