First of all, thanks for all of the positive feedback on my last post about PayPerPost. I shouldn't be surprised that all of you are also horrified at this latest development. Anyway, get ready for a bunch of pictures: I love, love, love this little baby blanket I made for Made for China.
I made this blanket out scraps of--what else?--recycled felted sweaters. I used a few different sage-y greens and some off-white, which I zig-zagged together. Then on the off-white pieces, I embroidered some pink and green flowers using these lazy daisy patterns here.
Here are some close-ups of the emboidery. I kind of just free-handed it. Wouldn't want it to look too perfect and not hand-made! I love pink and green together. My plan was to do the nursery in pink and green, but then the linens I picked out from Pottery Barn got discontinued. (That's what happens when it takes two years to get your child.) Now that we're getting a son first, the nursery is just sage green with a gingham/toile pattern.
Hey, speaking of pink and green, I joined the next swap organized by Rebecca and Lucy. They're calling their swaps Sweet Goodness. This one has a pink and green theme. Looks like I'm matched with two people: Rebecca herself and Nancy (though the link says Jenn?)
