Did I Happen To Mention That My Mom ROCKS!!!
422 yards of the prettiest handspun yarn you ever did see! And here I was drooling over this yarn on her blog, never knowing it was MINE! ALL MINE! BWAHAHAHAHA!
Now of course I'm agonizing over what to use it for. It's 422 yards of sportweight yarn. 100% (not superwash) wool. Socks? A shawl? Something felted? Hmmm....
Also, Janice had posted on her blog about the denim blanket her daughter Kristin made. It's so beautiful. I had promised to show her the one my mom made for me after my wedding, soon to be 5 years ago.
It's big and I was trying to take the picture by myself but I think you get the idea. It's made of old jeans, some pretty fabric she had in her stash and the leftover fabric from the wedding clothes she made everyone.
Quick explanation: I was married at Disney in a small ceremony on Sunset Pointe, behind the Polynesian Resort, overlook the Magic Kingdom. We had the whole wedding themed to fit the location. Since the wedding party was so small, just 8 people including Bryan and I, mom made all the clothes for the women and men in the party while Bryan and I went sort of traditional. I'll post pictures, promise!
This is one of the pockets used in the blanket with one of her cute little labels.
