    way before I ever met you all and was doing things "my way" I made these horrible scrappys for BFF and her two kids.

    HORRIBLE.

    She brought them with her yesterday for a visit and the one I made for her is filled with so many holes. My heart goes pitter patter. She thought I'd be mad. I think it's so sweet that it's been used up that much. I'm repairing it with orphans. It won't budge this time ;)

    Her kids call theirs "auntie bankys" and those are their time for bed snuggle blankets. They also have been worn out, but they don't care. It's so sweet and makes all the hard work and pulling your hair out worth every second.
