Blankets Done, Indianapolis Zoo, @ Christmastime.

Well I finished Meredith's blanket, her doll's blanket and her pillow.  I was pleased with how they turned out. Not bad, all this out of one blanket from Walmart.  Just putting on the yarn border and it is all fancied up.  So here they are.....

Pillow on back of chair is Meredith's. The baby dolls on the bottom. I just love the little penguins I think they are sooo cute.
I took a baby doll we have here that she plays with and wrapped it up in the blanket so you could see what it would look like. The hat I made too.

I made another baby doll's hat to match a hat that I made for Meredith. They both were brown and have white flowers on them.
                                 And here is the close up of the blanket's edging.

I am pretty sure that Meredith is going to like her new pillow. How do I know for sure you ask. Well we went up to their house yesterday to go to the Indianapolis Zoo. Before we left she fell asleep on Papaw's lap on a pillow I made when she was born. Adorable isn't it? Yes, the duck is too :)

I managed to get 4 pictures (exactly) before we left. That is about all the time you get with an 18 mos old.

Papaw was ticking her while we were walking through the zoo. You can sure see her new teeth can't you?
They had this shark petting exhibit at the zoo. It was cool they felt rubbery, or at least this breed did. I suppose this is great for kids to learn how to appreciate nature.

Notice the big red vein in the fin of this shark. Blue eyes too. They were called Dog Sharks. No barking was heard though  :))
They had the whole zoo lite up with lights. It as just beautiful.  They had animal light displays, and this peacock was really pretty. Of course more so in person.  

I will include more photos of the zoo tomorrow. I wanted to mention that Dan, Hannah, Art and I went to the Lincoln movie this afternoon. If you are into history you will love this movie. However, since we have been home I have not been feeling well at all. I hope if it is the flu it will pass quickly. I have heard it is going around alot. So until tomorrow, hope all is well with each of you. Best wishes from Thorntown.


  1. Love the edge on the little blanket. A special touch. I'm sure she will like it.

  2. You are so talented, and I'm sure that little beauty will appreciate your work. I've petted a sting ray before but doubt I'd ever want to touch a shark.

  3. Meredith will love her blanket and pillow, and I'm sure dolly will too!! She is so gosh darn cute. Treasure those precious moments!!!

  4. Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
    Any recommendations?
