Another Jiffy Trip

Made this on trip.

Yes, another one of our marathon trips up and back to Utah. But so worth it - as they always are. We drove up on Friday, celebrated D.O.D.'s 90th birthday (SLK's dad) and spent as much time as we could with our kiddos and grands on Saturday. Delightful. Delovely. Then changed our plans to stay for Sunday, attend church with our gang and left instead to get ahead of a rather big snow storm on Monday. Sadness.
front l - r: Shauna, D.O., Christie
back l - r: Scott and SLK
What a handsome/pretty family. I'm sure Mim/Marjorie would be proud of all of them.

I'm a fan of vintage(ish) nursery prints, books. Isn't this darling...
and I found it on flannel.
No doubt I purchased it to make more flannel baby blankets
for grands yet to be.

With 2 days driving up and back to Utah I almost finished 2 blankets and double matching burpies for each.

I loved this cotton crochet thread in luscious caramel.
Pretty shell design was just right stitch.

License plate print flannel -

with star reverse. Crocheted with nylon thread in a stitch that has a double half crochet as part of the pattern and I never remember how to do that. Took me so long to figure out something rather simple. Simple me.

Matching burpies. So pristine now only to be used to sop up burp-stuff.
It's a good thing.

Would you like to share what you do while you're traveling?
I'd like to know.

Happy day, msk
