Done and in Chicago by now. Hopefully it will be delivered to the new parents today.
I really love the colors they chose, so boyish, but not overly babyish. This should grow up with him awhile. It's definitely big enough to last past those infant days.
The back was one of those serendipity moments. I was planning a couple of zig zags for the back...sewed one of the sections wrong and didn't see it until I had cut it...took it apart and put it back together this way. I thought it looked pretty cute.
This might turn out to be another quilt design. I love those serendipity moments...after I get over the initial 'screwed that up' moment.
Thanks for the comments on my test post. Been struggling with my posts showing up on bloglines and now google reader. I thought maybe it was me being a MAC user, or my browser (so I tested with safari or firefox). (No I'm not going on a safari!) I've heard from some of you that I'm not the only one with this problem. I did figure out that if you resubscribe in bloglines and choose the second feed listed when it gives you feed options, that one is working. In google reader I have to refresh to get the posts to show up. It's so frustrating to not understand the whole feed thing. My hope is that you all can find me....I don't want to be lost in cyberspace.
