There's a lot going on at the moment and I haven't been a good blogger, or IGer or
anything-er really. One thing I do have to show though is a work in progress. My
sister-in-law is having a baby really really soon and I've been steadily working on
matching mumma-bubba blankets for them both... and this is what I've come up with...
As you can guess, she loves blues. The trick was to come up with matching designs
that were nonetheless distinctly adult and child versions. I'm a big fan of Lucy's ripple,
so I went for an ombré effect for the adult one and candy stripes for the child.
(The ombré blanket has been folded up which is why those ridges are there)
I haven't finished the baby blanket yet (have to get more of the navy wool today) but
I'm hoping that they'll both be done and ready for posting as soon as the baby arrives.
I've just realised this photo is the back of the work, but you get the idea ;)
I'm so nervous about whether she'll like it or not... here's hoping...
I've also made her a portable change mat out of Marimekko oilcloth, that
fabulous big flower design of theirs, again in the blues. You might have
seen this pic on my IG a couple of weeks ago...
(night photos... sorry!)
Hope you've had a wonderfully creative week. It's such a busy time of year,
isn't it? You can see more creative spaces here.
