3 weeks from Thursday
I fly up to Iowa to wrap a brand new little girl into this pink fluffy chenille/flannel blanky.
The fabric is whole cloth I bought from Hobby Lobby, so while I did not piece it myself, I did tie it and make the pink and white polka dotted binding myself (instructions for making your own binding found in Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing).
Here is a tutorial for how to make your own bias tape, but I like Amy's way better.
I popped the blanket in the mail today, before the Post Office goes bankrupt and the nation's postal system collapses. :)
In other news (not as exciting as baby news, but happy news none the less): after a bone-dry August, we have been getting rain for two days straight. Over 6 inches so far and very welcome!
