Life Beyond Books Challenge: Blanket finished!

I've got one more task done in my personal challenge to attempt to live a more balanced life in which books get set aside for at least part of the day. I finished the blanket just barely in time for my daughter's seventh birthday, with help:



It's just about as basic as you can get, but I've seen my kids' blankets get thrashed over the years, so I didn't feel the need to make it too elaborate. It's quite imperfect, because I was frantically trying to get the binding on before she woke up on her birthday, but she loves it all the same:


Next up: I'm hoping to finish the bench for my porch in the next week or two.

  6. How cute! Looks like a the perfect little snuggly gift. I've been dabbling in quilting this year as well in an effort to be more balanced.
