Car seat blanket

Attended a baby shower for my Cousin this past weekend. I made her a car seat blanket. This is only my second one but I feel like I'm getting better at it.

I used some of my wild flower Michael Miller fabric.

Here's the shower card:
I tried to get the card to match

As many of you know, our "Pa" (Grandpa) passed away almost two weeks ago. He was a fireman for over 30 years and was such a funny and generous man. I *know* without a doubt that he is watching out for us.

The morning I got the call I was in Las Vegas with my sister. Our husbands had gone to California to ocean fish. I awoke with flu-like symptoms and had kicked my Nephew out of his bathroom as I cried and hovered over the porcelain. I crawled back in bed and slept for a few hours. When I woke up, I felt ready to take the six hour drive home with my Sister, her two kids, and Ruby the dog.

On our way out of Cedar City we had a tire blow out. Thankfully, this was not my Sister's first tire blow out and she handled it well. Just as we pulled over, we had an unmarked police truck pull up behind us. Out came SLC Sheriff Jim Winder and his crew (officer Cooke, and another officer) They had our tire fixed in no time flat (no pun intended). They asked us where we were headed and we told them we were going home to be with family.

I was so grateful they had come to our rescue.
Re-Elect Sheriff Jim Winder!!

(And before you even think it--No, I'm not pregnant!)
