I made a receiving blanket today and it turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!! (humble, I know!)

I got the fabric at Cotton Shop where I normally don't go, but I found these two fabrics and thought they were sweet. Isn't the houndstooth fun? I love that print. And you can NEVER go wrong with polka dots!

I decided to personalize it, so I added the first letter of the name (since I already know what her name is!). And I added a heart too, just for fun. The circles for the B are little rosettes I made and the brown is minky. I loooove minky. I should make myself a giant minky blanket I think!

Mother of the year goes to me...

Yep, that's my baby! She wanted to learn to sew, so I laid her down and taught her! Ha ha, ok so maybe not, but she is asleep there.

Today we actually went to the doctor. Poor Ali hasn't gotten over being fussy and the nurse suggested we get her ears checked out again since she got over an ear infection a couple weeks ago. Turns out she has a DOUBLE EAR INFECTION now. But we have medicine again (a larger dose) and luckily it's white this time, not pepto bismol pink that tried to stain EVERYTHING she wore during round one of the ear infection! Hopefully this is the last time we have to deal with this for a while.

so did you just sew right-sides together, turn, and topstitch? it looks really awesome! and please, if i had an infant, you KNOW i'd be doing the same thing, right?!

VERY cute blanket. Hopefully Ali gets feeling better soon. Brooke has never had an ear infection so I haven't had to deal with that before.

Bummer, That's no fun! Hope the meds work this time! Your blanket's sure fun though!

So so cute. LOVE it........I'm sure Ali will sew before I do with all of those lessons!!!! Ha ha.....;)

And I HOPE she is feeling much much better too. YUCK. Little Emery has been fussy the last few days too, and I'm about ready to take her in to see what's up.
