Running short on time today... babygirl sleeps really well at night, but it translates to very short naps during the day.
Here is an almost-full shot of the baby blanket I made for a friend of mine who is a couple weeks away from being a first time mama. I used a combination of vintage sheeting (the pink stripes), and some stash fabric (from Heather Bailey's Pineapple Brocade to stock quilter's cotton; the blue has polka dots). I trimmed it with a dotted pink minky left over from Figet's nursery bedding, made three years ago.
I loved the combination so much that I think I'm going to use that yellow for curtain's in the new nursery. I'm not kidding. I have about 10 yards of it that I bought for another project that will never happen and I think it would look smashing as full-length curtains. Anyone think I'm nuts?
I also made a matching onesie for the babe. This little newborn onesie was worn by by my own babygirl once or twice and I was getting ready to put it in the goodwill pile. Ten minutes and a little heat-n-bond later, I had part deux of the baby gift. Voila.
I'm making more of these.
That's a promise. And a warning. I do have a bagillion baby gifts to make, after all. :)
