"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'!

Vette's Quilt

Finishing up some Christmas sewing today and thought of this special quilt I did for my sister last year.   My grandmother had several blocks started when she passed away, and I was blessed to be able to complete a quilt for my sister using my grandmother's blocks. I am so thankful to have a grandmother and mother who have inspired me throughout my life with their faith and many talents! 

Green & Brown Tractor

Little boys and tractors go hand in hand. 
For some reason green seems to be a popular color for tractors.

Veteran's Day is a great reminder to say thank you to those who have served their country!! Our family is proud of my husband's father for serving in the Vietnam War along with all of the other guys from the 359th Transportation Unit.  We are thankful for all those who have served in the military everyday, not just on Veteran's Day!!
