little flannel blanket
I quilted my first baby blanket. I have crocheted many, but never attempted one with my sewing machine. Finally, I had a good enough incentive to break out of my crafty comfort zone...my brother's first baby! Sex is yet to be determined, but I just had to make one for when I went to visit in DC a couple of weekends ago. I won't see them again until the babe is here and it needed a present from its favorite auntie before then. I tried going to some fabric stores but couldn't find any cute gender neutral flannel. I came home and got online and found the cutest fabric that I fell in love with. Then I spent 2 long days (I never would've thought that sewing straight lines would take all day long) busting out the blanket. I had to get it done before we left but really the biggest motivator was that I was so excited about it that I needed to see the finished product. And they loved it.
