Little Girl's All Grown Up

Contribution by Stevie Kirby

Gosh, I get really nervous when I think about my little girl growing up and moving out into her own place. It seems like just yesterday she was 10 years old but now she can drive and is about to graduate college and get her own place! Her mother and I bought a house for her to move into so she wouldn’t have to worry about rent those first few years and I think she’s really grateful. It’s in a great part of town and we got her a security system so I wouldn’t be the anxious father, at least anymore than I already am. She tells me I’m smothering her and I need to let her go but it’s tough when you raise a kid for eighteen years and then all of a sudden they become an adult! I guess I better get used to it since I’ve got 3 more young ones behind her and they’re all going to go through the exact same thing. I know they’re dreading my reaction to it!

Welcome to the world baby girl.

My Nephew and his wife are having their 3rd child in a few months.  We are finally getting a little girl to love and spoil on this side of the family!   Of course I wanted to make her something special to welcome her to the family.

I found the tutorial for this blanket over at The Crafting Chicks.   I love their blog!  I've found so many wonderful tutorials on there!   This is really the easiest blanket that I have ever made.

I will definitely be making this the "go to" baby gift from now on.  So, if your a friend of mine and your expecting.  You know what your getting.   lol

And of course, being me, I had to make a toy to go with the blanket.  I love the way the cute little doll turned out!  I will hopefully be able to make some of these with matching blankets for my Etsy store one day.
