Finished Baby Star Blanket

I finally finished the Baby Star Blanket! 
Now we have to wait and see who will be next in getting a visit from the stork?
 This is my first shape baby blanket ever, and I am so happy with the end result!  Now I'm planning on making one each in pink/white, yellow/white, & blue/white. 
I hope these are good pictures...I noticed that I might have to get newer and better eyeglasses. bed is a queen size, so this might give you an idea as the size of the blanket.
Now for my next project: a bulky chunky poncho for me.  Believe it or not, our winters get pretty chilly.
Have a great week and make the most of it!

Thrifty Find

I have a thing for linens...hehehe...!!!
Friday morning while waiting for my prescription to be ready (an hour wait)...I walked over to Eve's Place thrift store and found a really neat painted Battenburg pillowcase for $1.00!

I came home: washed it, starched it and ironed it...and voila...on the bed with the others!

On the other side, I took out my mother-in-law's embroidered pillowcases.
...and the current star of all pillows: my mother's crotchet pillowcase.
