Despite what you saw in yesterday’s post… we haven’t been completely unproductive this week. I did take a little time to finish up the Swan top.
And I couldn’t be more pleased. I adore the silvery grey with the pale pinks and blues. It’s unconventional, but elegant. The finished top is about 32″ square, so it’s not huge, but I was a little worried it might be too small for a baby blanket.
But my Snoopervisor ensures me it’s just right. And seeing him on it, giving me a sense of scale, I think he’s right.
I’ve got some pale pink that should work for binding, but I’ve got my heart set on a flannel back for this, so I’ll have to hit up Lens. I hope I can find something with swans, but I’m not going to be too picky.
Mom’s giving me long-arm lessons this weekend, so if they go well, I may even quilt myself. Baby is due mid January, but I’m not too concerned with getting it done before then… as long as I get it to her by spring, I’ll be happy.
