Adam's Birthday blanket
I played around with the embroidery stitches on my machine and made a little name tag. I'm not really a big fan of machine embroidery and that's probably why I haven't given it a go until now, but Fox is really on my case about making labels and thinks I should make my own too. So bossy!
Adams blanket is fleecy one side and flannel the other with cotton binding. and I quilted the two sides together with a large square pattern. It's funny how something that looks so simple to make can actually take a whole day to complete.
Anyway, I'm so glad I got this done yesterday because Adam's little brother Toby was born yesterday & I'm no where near finished on his crochet baby blanket. Time to get the hook out and go for it. Oh & it's my sister's birthday on Thursday, so I'm hoping to fit all three pressies in the one post parcel. Express of course!
Thanks for dropping by, hope you had a lovely weekend!
