Baby Blanket

I have made three quilts for my nieces and nephews, one tapestry for myself (previously bragged about on this here blog), and now am making another for a friend's impending babe. I got all of the fabric and batting from the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, which after volunteer discount and other friendly discounts from awesome employees cost me next to nothing (or maybe 3$ at the most). I haven't purchased backing for it yet because I hate measuring but will post a finished photo in a few weeks. Watch me keep my own deadline! I intend to line the hem with silk ribbon and try my hand at embellished stitching.

I think the little hand-stitched flannel cowboy appliques are damn adorable.

aaaand more postcards, this time in matching colors!
I am also trading a few for a friend who does glass blowing, in exchange for an implosion marble!

This is a weird skyline that is supposed to be Oakland but also with the Transamerica building in it, no idea. Observe: Lake Merritt, cherry blossoms, Canada geese!
