"She makes coverings for her bed ..." Proverbs 31:22
What is Nita Blankie?

I started making these Blankies for my friends about ten years ago, and they have always been a delightful and welcomed gift. My daughter's name, Allyson, is spelled with a 'y' and it's next to impossible to find anything personalized for her. The Blankie was the perfect answer and such a special keepsake.

The Blankies are embroidered with a name and a small design on the fleece side and Minkee or some other type of plush fabric for the backing. Ribbon loops are spaced around the outer edge, giving a baby something to play with or a loop to clip to a stroller so they won't fall off.

Most Blankies are approximately 30" x 30", but as each Blankie is unique, it may vary a few inches either way. You can choose the two colors YOU need for that special gift, perhaps to match the nursery. Email me at rdyefam@yahoo.com and I will be happy to work with you to make a very special gift if you 'Nita Blankie'!

Gardening for Christ

My grandmother always had a sign above her garden gate that read "Gardening for Christ". This quilt made me think of her beautiful gardens over the years.  You never left her house empty handed when it came to veggies.   She was still gardening at the age of 95 and when you walked through her garden, you would have a hard time finding any weeds. Since weeding the garden was never one of my favorite chores, I thought I would sew my own seeds where the weeds would never grow!!  No watering either with all this hot weather!!!
