Now that it is getting chilly, there's really nothing better to do than to curl up in a cozy blanket with a stack of good books and a cup of hot cocoa
But we won't be bundled up in this particular one - this one will be sent, along with hundreds of others, to homeless children in the Grand Rapids, MI area. This is made possible by Craft Hope and Margaret's Hope Chest - so thanks to both wonderful entities for this.
Michigan winters are brutal -- I should know - I went to school not 45 minutes from Grand Rapids, which is also very close to hubby's hometown.
While my quilt is far from perfect (it's my first time working with something this big!), I'm really hoping that it will help provide warmth and comfort to the child who receives it (and also crossing both fingers and toes that it holds up!!)
Which makes me want to keep it for her (since it'll probably be a LONG time before I attempt making one again!)
So it's on its way out
