I am making progress on the baby blanket that I started knitting some time during the Reagan Administration. The pattern for the blanket describes it as the "8 hour" baby blanket. I'm not sure who could finish this in 8 hours, but it sure isn't me.





This pretty little sparrow was at the feeder this morning.
And Hanna questions why I need another photo of her sleeping . . . who knew a shoe would make a good pillow?

Mucho props on the blanket! Makes me reminisce about my baby blanket. Awwwww. Umm, did I just type this out? Oh well.

And great sparrow picture! From what I've seen they are very lively, jumpy. But they jump back to a perch, and then come back to feed when they are ready.

And who could get enough photos of Hanna? I just want to give her a big hug.

Have a great day, Diane!

I too was unable to see your photos. Your blanket reminds me of a quilt I have from my grandma. She finished it one summer in the early 70s when I was staying with them--the quilt has embrodiered squares of each state flower--since she started it in the 40s, it only has 48 squares!

You would have to be a speed-stitcher to knock that off in 8 hours!! The edges look complicated.

I love how pets make a pillow out of ANYTHING that strikes their fancy!

Looks like you are almost done with the blanket!

That blanket would take me eight months!

Love the bird. My cat makes little chittering noises whenever she's watching one from the window. I know she's thinking about how much she'd love to pounce on it.

Awww I just want to hug Hana around her neck and pet her head.

I can see them too. Nanners is adorable, and I bet she knows it.

Your blanket is giving me knitting envy. My knitting skills are not where I had hoped they would be. I still can't cast on. :(
