Using up one’s fabric gives one the thrill and moral fortitude that comes with recycling one’s hundreds of diet Coke cans. However, if I wasn’t such an addict of buying both of these things, I would not have to do either but, at the same time would most likely be missing out on this forced feel-good moment. Anyway, I was glad I had the fabric so I could make these baby blankets for a friend who is now having identical twin boys. The ironic thing is, she was one of two people who threw a baby shower for me when I was preparing to have my second set of twins. Lesson to be learned: don’t throw showers for twin bearers unless you have had a tubal ligation, hysterectomy, or you are male. I jest, I think.
