two of my seesters, carrie, my mom and i at the shower.
i went home that night and started the blanket, getting the top complete. but i got stumped at the backing since i wanted to do an applique on it. there were cars on some of the fabrics and i had the lofty idea of making a road and copying two of the cars into applique form. really great idea, but because of it, the blanket sat untouched all through the holidays, three months past drextyn's birth. finally i gave in and nixed the applique idea for the sake of getting the blanket delivered while he was still a baby. however, i purchased more of the fabrics so maybe next time someone has a boy, i can get the applique on there.
