Phew, that was close!

Celeste with the baby babette
The baby shower for my sister in law, Celeste, was on Saturday. I didn't have much time to work on the blanket last week because I was getting ready for my class on Friday. Soooo, I was up til 2 am Friday stitching squares together, and again Saturday morning! I finished everything but weaving in the yarn ends, which I will do soon. I wished I could have had it totally finished, but I was just happy that it was all put together. Mom's friends all really liked the blanket, and want me to teach them how to do the kool aid dyeing.

This is the quilt that mom made for her first grandchild.
The zig zag quilt pattern is from Anna Maria Horner. I love the way this turned out.

I'll post more detailed shots of the blanket soon. Oh, by the way my jewelry class was a hit, and I'll tell you more about that too.
