Speaking of Sophie.....

I thought I'd better finish up the blanket I've been working on for her since she was born.

Seriously. Since she was born.

My Mom had bought a bunch of minky and silk charmeuse to make her blankets and I was like... oh, Mom, you're so busy... let me take it home... I can make it so much faster.... sigh.....

8 months later... here it is. Finally.



and now I remember why I kept looking at it instead of working on it.
silk charmeuse + minky = super slinky and hard to work with....

ugh. The inside looks horrible. Trust me. I'm not being 'hard on myself'.
Plus, I am running out of thread and I had to use gray instead of that magenta.... so you can see all the mistakes. Not pretty.



But it feels like heaven!
I definitely wasn't getting any complaints from these two, whom, incidentally, want to steal everything I make for Sophie.



I can't wait to see that sweet, chubby, happy baby cuddled up in this blanket.

I used this applique frame and these new AWESOME applique letters from Lynnie Pinnie.




Blanket done! Better late than never. My Mom is gonna be so excited!

Mom is thrilled. I just love it to pieces. I know Megan and Sophie will love it. I can see Sophie rolling up inside it. Cute Cole.
