Progress on Gracious Parcels Spring ’07 Blankets

First Gracious Parcels Spring 07 Blanket Comes TogetherJust a brief post to show a photo of progress on the first sewn together blanket for Gracious Parcels Spring ’07. Read more about this at the I Live on a Farm blog.

I have also posted a “Photos” page here at the Gracious Parcels Blog. Check it out.

The photos I have posted there are some I shot one day when I had received a large batch of mail packets with squares. In a perfect world I would have had the time to photograph each contribution that came in and put up the photo with credit to the contributor.

This, however, is not a perfect world.
