Thank you so much for this blog! 

Your blanket is absolutely beautiful!


I am about to start a afghan for a dear cousin who has breast cancer. I am going to use the Stoney Creek “Words to Live By” and your information will help me immensely!

Good luck with! Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Finished! The replacement floss arrived on Monday. I'm still irked that I gave them the benefit of the doubt for a month when they easily could have stuck something in the mail and had it to me the next business day. :dunno:

It's in the washing machine right now (in a lingerie bag). I figured no new mom is going to have time to hand wash something so I might as well see what happens and if it gets ruined it's my fault, and not hers. I'm a little terrified...

EDIT: Looks fine after washing! The colors didn't run! It's now in the dryer on "ultra low," a setting I've never used before...

So it essentially took you like 5 weeks to make this?? Wow. I'm thinking like at least 6 months of stitching for me, but I'd get so bored after a couple weeks I'd put it down and not pick it up again for 6 months! I like doing crafty things, but they need to be done in a week or I get bored. I crocheted a rainbow blanket six years ago, took 4.5 months 2 rows every night, an eternity!! But it is a gorgeous blanket. 

Amazing Emily, very cute, and treasured I'm sure (have you seen it since you gifted it?)
