When our friends asked us to be the only Godparents to their son we couldn't have been more flattered. And on a crazy whim I suggested that they asked all their guests to bring a piece of fabric and I would make a blanket for him as a memory of the day.
I went home with lots of fabric and no plan at all. A year and a half later and I have finally finished. It's by no means perfect, I have a lot to learn, but it was made with love.
