Nesting

























I guess the nesting phase has begun. Sean and I found this super cute whale fabric a couple of weekends ago. We thought it might become a crib sheet, but I decided today to make it into a lovey blanket instead.

So, on our errand adventures today, we went to the fabric store and bought some amazingly soft faux mink-type orange fabric for the back and coordinating ribbon to make tags all around the edges. I hear tags and textures are really popular among Little Ones so hopefully these features will be a hit with our kid, too.

I want to do a little quilting hand work, but it's mostly done. What do you think?

I like it! Those whales look fun, and the orange one looks really soft.

Speaking from a blankie expert, I think this will be perfect. I really like the ribbon- that will be excellent in the mouth and a good handle for dragging, making capes, and hanging on everything! Good work! I can't wait to see it! The blanket too hehe. I'm going to the fabric store soon- I'll keep and eye on cute fabrics!

I like it - a lot! I like the colors, the fabrics, everthing. The theme of whales is cute, too, considering where you live. Please let us know when you decide on colors for the nursery; the colors in this lovey/comfy/blankie are pretty darn cute and quite refreshing.

Love Mom/Gram
