EMBROIDERED BABY BLANKET

I know, I know, it’s been ages since my last post but you know what......I actually miss having a record of my stitching, so I’m back!

What have I accomplished over the last 12 months, well quite a bit but for now I wanted to show you my latest interest..... embroidery.  I have started a class which will teach me stumpwork and other embroidery skills.

As we have a new baby expected in May over in London, I have just finished a beautiful woollen blanket with the design by ‘windflower embrodery’  Not hard at all, even making the teddy from scratch from velour then stuffing him and attaching to the blanket.  It’s all in the instructions together with the embroidery guide.


Here’s a close up of the actual design


The only trouble I had was choosing the backing material, Gemma (mother-to-be) didn’t want anything traditional like pink, so I went with a gold/mustard colour with small white crosses.  

There really is nothing like a comfy woollen blanket for those cold nights in a London winter so I think ‘Baby H’ will be snug and warm this year.

Now onto the cot quilt and floor quilt......see you soon.
