More blankies

I've been slacking in the blankie department. Not that Jax has been keeping me busy with medical problems or anything. I'm actually caught up on the blankies that have been requested, just not doing a good job advertising. I'm deciding if I dare take a flyer up to our PICU. I'm a little worried that if I do that I will get bombarded with requests, so I want to be totally caught up before I dare try that. I do have many helpers though, so I think we would be ok.
The look has changed a little. I bought blue and pink ribbon that I wrap around every blankie before it goes out.

I also am FINALLY almost done with my rememberance blankies. I feel horrible. One mom has been waiting since March for one. I had a really hard time finding a place to embroider them for me. Every place wants high volumes so if you only have a couple they charge an outrageous price. I'm actually lucky to have found the person I did. I just happened to ask the clerk at the Fabric Center if she knew who did them. She just happened to know a lady that has a machine in her home, and she agreed to do them for me. Wahoo. I can't wait until their done so I can show you how precious they are.

Just look at this cute boy. His name is Riley. He is on the blankie blog right now!

Riley is such a cutie! I can't believe that you can even get done all that you have to each day, plus you do the blankies! WHEW! But, I'm so glad that you do it, because we love our Blankie and use it almost every single day! Thank You! Keep up the great work!

That's great that you found someone to help you! That little Riley is adorable. We love our Jax blankie, it is definately going to the hospital with us in a week and a half. :)

You are such a sweet person to make these blankets. As you said, it's not like you have a busy life or anything. ;)
