The baby blanket embroidered characters start with a ladybug and ends with a lucky shamrock to fill this blog page.
L is for ladybug,
M is for moon,
O is for octagon,
octopus, orchid (already shown on the previous page),
P is for puppy,
R is for rectangle,
S is for shamrock,
You may have noticed that the red checker binding on the blanket was covering part of the shamrock image. Darn. When I quilted the backing onto the sheet I discovered that the backing wasn’t as long as the embroidered sheet. Ooops.
The most enjoyable part of making a baby blanket for me is to draw the creatures, you know, the alphabet suggestion images for learning to read. I came real close to getting the majority of the alphabet on the blanket when I was done. Only missing 7 of the letters – E, G, J, N, Q, V, X, and Z. Maybe I should plan better the next time to get all the letters in. Forethought and planning. Hmmm.
F is for fish,
flamingo, and frog,
H is for hand,
horse, hummingbird, (and orchid above it)
I is for ice cream,
K is for kitten,
The characters continue on till the blanket is full of fun things to point at and talk about.
