Long-time reader, first-time poster---nothing you guys haven't seen before, but I enjoyed it. I needed a quick project to provide me with that much-needed sense of satisfaction. So I grabbed my nephew's baby blanket and started to use metallics, but then remembered that metallics make me want to punch babies and this baby was too cute to punch. Also, my stitches are a bit wonky. If you can avoid stitching on these thermal blankets, do so because it makes for heinous embroidery. There's also an obligatory action shot starring baby Dorian.

Geez, that baby's cute!!!  Oh wait!!  That's MY baby, hee hee!  I'm so keeping that blanket forever.  It'll be awesome to show him when he gets bigger.  You're a good aunt!!

P.S.  Don't you hate when there are a lot of views of your stuff, but nobody leaves a comment?  No kudos, no "hey, that's crap", nothing?  It's demoralizing, yeah?

Looks great!  The colour choices are spot on. I've never seen a skull look so baby-friendly.

I really like it!  I wonder what kind of baby blankets would be easy to embroider on...hmmm...

I wouldn't have thought to put a skull like that on a baby blanket, but HEY! it works! Good job!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
