It wasn't anything super fancy. A log cabin blanket for my new niece.
I matched the colors to the fabric they were using for her nursery. They were aiming for a McKenzie Child's theme so I knew what I wanted to do.
It needed to be lined. In the black and white checked fabric. Now those of you who know me realize that I hate to sew. And here's where mom comes in. She's a master seamstress. She made my clothes growing up, she still sews her curtains - and I'm talking professional valances. So she sat at her machine and sewed the lining in for me.
I consider it a group effort sorta thing.
I think what I like best is that most of the yarn is leftover from items I knit for her brother and sister.
Enjoy your weekend!
