We seem to have a few friends who have just had babies or are about to have them. I always think that handmade gifts are a lovely keepsake and I like to give them whenever I can. I’ve made a couple of simple blankets in the past and have liked the way that the basic patchwork ones turn out.
We have a new quilting & yarn shop in the next city over from ours…when I say city, it makes it seem like a good old distance to drive but Fairhope is only 10 minutes from where we live. It has a beautiful downtown area with lots of little independent stores that we like to support. In The Making opened a few months ago and I believe they have a store open in Birmingham, Alabama also.
