for Skylar Catherine

This time, making a baby blanket was simple.
I started this one back in March
I know this momma very well.  She is always happy.
She is energetic and always ready to go and do.
She is an artist with a love of bright colors.
She has wanted to be a mother for the last 15 years and
her dream is finally coming true.

And her favorite flowers are daisies. 

Put that all together and TA DAH...

She wanted it bigger than a standard baby blanket. 

 Something they could grow into. 
She said she pictures them under a tree reading books
and taking naps and having tea parties.

I am so happy for her!

This blanket is made for fun times, for parks and the beach.
I'm really really happy with how it turned out. Actually, I am hugely, enormously happy!
 Working on this blanket has been a total pleasure from start to finish, 
I don't think I will ever tire of granny squares. I love their simplicity. 



(It. Will. Not. Lie. Flat!!)  Maybe a few too many loops on the edging!

It is a very colorful, cheerful and happy blanket

Putting so much love and happy thoughts into this blanket
 has given me a great deal of pleasure.
 So easy and relaxing.

One last shot!
