Cozy blankets for a snowy week
The days surrounding Christmas have been very snowy. We got about seven inches right before Christmas, and unfortunately, the powers that be around here are not big on plowing.
Red Chief had found some instructions for making a tied fleece blanket, and we braved the icy roads the day before the big storm to get some fabric. I'm glad we did: it gave us a project and a goal to look forward to during a few days when we didn't leave the house.
Our two blankets turned out well, and every time I turn around I find a kid cuddled up in one. It was fun to have a project we could all work together on.
Oh, and lest you feel bad that Pip didn't get one: he will only accept cotton flannel blankets, and he already has about seventeen.
