"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'!

Happy Birthday Kansas!

Kansas turns 150 years old this weekend. Although I didn't make a quilt or a blankie commemorating the event, we did make this sunflower cake. I adore the new Kansas postage stamp that has the old-time and the modern windmills on it. After sunflowers, I think the windmills are my favorite part of living in Kansas!

When I finished this blankie - it really made me think - SUNSHINE!!!  This was definitely a new color combo for me - although I have alway been partial to yellow.  The back of the blankie was a super soft brown with pink, green, orange, and yellow polka dots.  In the end it turned out bright and bubbly!!!

Bright pink and light pink both work great with brown and the flowers add just the right girlie touch!
