tis the season for cozy blankets
heaps and heaps of them ... in all sorts of colors and patterns
i am especially loving the southwestern styles these days.
i wish i had a coulple of these heaps for myself!
i stumbled upon this awesome exhibit called Blanket Stories
with a beautiful write up about the meaning of blankets throughout our lives
"We are received in blankets, and we leave in blankets.
The work in these rooms is inspired by the stories
of those beginnings and endings, and the life in between."

i have made a number of blankets over the years
all of which have become super soft and worn and even more cozy with age
i think they make a fabulous gift and are so easy to make.
they can be as simple and two pieces of fabric sewn around the edge
or as fancy as a carefully pieced quilt made from dozens of colorful scraps.
come to think of it, i may just have to make a couple new blankets this season
...i'm pretty sure that you can never have too many...
especially when you've got a little bulldog to share them with
