mommy to the rescue!

crisis was averted earlier this week after david's poor blanky suffered serious injuries! 
this poor thing has been through the ringer!  it was a gift from my sister when he was a baby, and he soon chose it as his favorite.  its been chewed on, spilled on, peed on, and dragged!  i've been nursing it along for a while, tying off areas that came undone.  but this time was different.  a huge chunk was pulling out, and it needed some evasive action.  he was devastated.   i was able to hide it from him for about a week until i came up with a plan.   it was simple in my head, but have you ever tried to sew something that has been crocheted(sp?)?  it is not easy, my friends!  but i did it.  it was the biggest pain-in-the-ass-thing i have EVER had to sew!!.  i added a satin blanket border.  it looks terrible!  however, the smile on that kids face made it worth it! (and hopefully it will hold everything together for a while!)
