My Grandma's Gift

6 Days Until Christmas! 

This year I thought I would do something really special for my grandma-I decided to make her a lap blanket.  My grandma's favorite chair has always been her recliner and in case your wondering it's not like 50 yrs old she got a new one a couple of years ago.  Anyway last month I was shopping in Michael's and saw that Vanna White has her own yarn and came out with two books.  So being that I crochet I bought one the books and some yarn.

It really is a beautiful blanket! You should be proud of yourself and I'm sure that Grandma will love it! The colors are stunning. You know, I happen to have a lap and I too enjoy covering it with blankets. *hint hint*

Grandma will love that blankie.

I know I do, and I'm not even a grandma.

You're "officially" on my regular blogroll, so I'll be attempting to visit once a week.

If this plan makes it through January, I'll be doin' great!
