For Ruth

I took advantage of the snow days last weekend and finished the Crochet Fusion blanket I started in December.

There isn't much about this project that I didn't love. The colors. The fabric. The cotton yarn. It was all such a joy to stitch together.

I wasn't sure who would have this blanket when I started. I just knew it needed to be made.

Early in the morning on December 12, 2012 I woke up thinking about my sister-in-law, who was due to give birth any day. She was so heavily set upon my heart, I got out of bed to pray. Several hours later, I got the call that my sweet niece was born and all was good and right. It was then that I knew, that this labor of love would (eventually) be wrapped around a little girl named Ruth.

I haven't had the privilege to hold or meet her yet... but Ruth, Auntie Kellie loves you so.

Oh, Auntie Kellie -

I love you, too.
