So, my future sister-in-law had a baby back in February, and I had started making a baby blankie for her on the 4th of July, just after she told us, and I didn't get done until a week before the baby shower on the 9th of January! Needless to say, I got really tired of doing it, lol, but it turned out great, but oh no! I forgot to get pictures! That's okay though, because she changed her name last minute so I need to rip out the one there and change the middle name.

Thanks guys! The back actually looks pretty good. I only went through the blanket when I first started sewing it, or if I'd taken a break and picked it back up after a few weeks, and of course the knots, but other than that it's pretty clean Smiley

That is a ton of stitches, you have a lot of patience and talent!  This design is so cute, I love the mamas and babies together.  A labor of love, but you are definitely going to be the baby's favorite aunt.  Wink
