receiving blanket, part II

Do you remenber my receiving blanket,
waiting for its embroidery?

Well I did it!

I emboidered a beautiful little lamb,
using stem stitch for the body,
lazy daisy (or free floating chain stitch) and
French knot for the flowers.

I think it really finishes the blanket.
It is very dainty, but I like it!

It should be modeled with a baby,
but I do not know any babies anymore,
so we found a solution!

Just right!

Happy sewing!

PS I got my haircut today...

It only happens twice a year!!
So here is an updated picture of me:


  1. Love the blanket! Thanks for stopping by to visit my apron creation!

  2. beautiful blanket. your daughte might think all the moms as as creative as hers, I bet she won't realize how lucky she is until she has her own kids.
    And I love you hair, I don't think I have seen you with such a long one ever. They did a great job, I have to think about getting mine "fixed" before I go overseas.

  3. thank you!
    She does think all the moms do that...
    She always asks for more stuff all the time,
    but since I am crazy that way... I like it.
    Have a great trip!
