I finally finished another project! My sweet friend, Almudena, was blessed with a baby girl in November of 2010. Baby Lucia arrived earlier than expected and she is a complete miracle baby, overcoming challenge after challenge. So here's a special blanket for a VERY special little girl!
I bought this fabric in late summer 2010 from Hancocks. I just loved the soft colors and the little owl motif. I bought the softest chenille that I could find as the backing. This blanket is OHHHH...SOOO...SNUGGLY!
I thought I would try my hand at quilting around the motif, but 3 months of FOG got in the way. :) I realized that I need not be an over-achiever and just hurry up and make the blanket before Lucia is a teenager.
I added Lucia's initials and made a ribbon flower brooch that can be put on her baby bag, a hat, a sweater....or whatever!
Welcome to the World, Baby Lucia! You are a special little girl!
