Heart Blanket

Everyone has been sick at my house this past week so needless to say the blog got ignored a little. I don't have this weeks spotlight for you today but will get it up next week so stayed tuned.

Instead today I'd like to share a blanket with you. I wanted to make something for each of my kids as a memento of their brother. So I decided to make a fray blanket for each of them that incorporated the heart theme. My baby boys room is a jungle theme so I thought these material would be perfect.
Then I sketched out the pattern I wanted on paper before I started cutting material. I am very happy with how it turned out.
I let my girls pick out their own material but have not gotten to their blankets yet. And I also bought material to do one as a wall hanging to put at the top of our stairs with pictures of our heart angel.

Now I must say bon voyage! My hubby and I are leaving for a cruise tomorrow. Yay!!! And I won't be back until next week. But I will have a couple more heart posts to wrap up heart month when I get back. Have a happy weekend, I know I will!!!!
