A Shocking Photo Of A Blanket I Made For Igor & Sarah's New Baby Amy.

The blanket looks much nicer is use.
Igor is a sweetheart I recently studied with, and they were having a baby, and I was in between projects and wanted to do something simple without having planned it for two years and studied how to for twenty. It's cute but simple. Then I felt embarrassed because it's a lot to give a co-worker. But Igor is lovely and there you go.

Now that my daughter is having another baby I'm making a proper one, although I havn't been able to find any polar fleece that's a decent colour, so I'm using what feels like cashmere in a soft green. Baby is going to get the Happy Bunny Baby Quilt too, and it all needs to match. Sort of match anyway.

I've asked Igor for some detail photo's but he's a boy and a young one at that and we'll see. I should have photographed it myself but didn't for some reason. I think it was because it was dark when I left for work and dark when I got home. Yes, that was it.

It's lots of fun and very nice. Did you just embroider everything on a piece of blue fleece? Including the words?

Yes, it's polar fleece, that really really soft one like microbibre so you odon't have to do anything to it. I made the back as neat as possible, but didn't worry overly. I've just started another for my nearly grand-daughter nut on wool. Cashmere. I couldn't find a nice colour in the polar. This time I'm stitching in a spiral coming out from the middle, mostly in cream's, silvers and golds, with pretty, soft colours.
Biggest problem is, my sweetypie is allergic to wool at this hay-fever time of year!
I'll post a pic of course.
