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!


  1. Very nice work, your machine embroidery looks good. You're certainly going to be very busy finishing off two more pressies by Thursday!

  2. Great blanket. What a great idea to make a blanket using fleece and flannel - I would never have thought of that. Brilliant.
    Love your label. A really sweet touch.
