A very sweet friend of mine who has two boys just had a little baby girl. She was so certain it was going to be a third boy that she didn’t even find out what she was having. But she was wrong!! And very glad about it too.
So, though I usually try to insert a little blue, red, or yellow into girl gifts, and especially into my own girls’ stuff, I figured she deserved the pinkest of pink presents that ever pinked.
It’s yet another minky blanket, again with ruffles. Much like childbirth, I said after the last time that I was never making another ruffly blanket again. But then I looked back at the pictures and remembered how cute it was and got suckered into it all over again. At least this one sleeps through the night.
And while I usually like a big swatch of white minky to balance out a pepto bismal explosion, I stuck to the theme and went with pink. A whole lotta pink.
A very good friend of mine who has an embroidery machine (that cost more than my first two cars combined) embroidered her name for me. Those are the friends you want to have! (I pay her in the valuable commodity of fabric scraps)
More pink. Ruffly pink.
Did I mention pink? What’s girlier than pleated pink ballet slippers? (pattern here)
Paired with the pink painted onesie I made, just waiting for a pinkalicious baby to be born.
Whew. Off to stare at something green for awhile. Also, I said “pink” so many times in this post that it has ceased to look like a real word to me.
