Kari: Queen of Hearts Lace-edged Preemie Blanket

Well, here it is in all its splendor! LOL Tim's sister is due any day now and I wanted to make her something special. Hats and beanies had lost their luster so I thought I'd attempt something a little fancier. I didn't know at the time that the "lace" was to be attached AFTER the body of the blanket was complete. It's only by God's grace that I ended up with the proper amount of lace to sew on the outer edge. It fit PERFECT. The blanket itself is not big, only 18" x 19" including lace. The original Lion Brand pattern called for Cashmere but I used a wool blend.
I'd like to attach a verse or prayer to this blanket......Of course, Psalm 139 comes to mind but I'd love to hear other ideas or suggestions too.

How about Psalm 23?

It's beatiful, Kari. You did a great job!

Kari, I can't believe how quickly you finished that! You weren't even done with the lace the night before! It's gorgeous. Your sister-in-law will love it. :)
