This is the first of many baby blankets on my project list. This one is for my neice, Sarah, who was born on October 21st, exactly a week before her daddy’s birthday (my brother). It took me a while to figure out what to put on her blanket, especially since I couldn’t even really look at concepts until after she was born, since they could not tell the gender on her ultrasounds.
I say this is the first of many because I have 5 more on my project list currently. My husband’s sister, a friend of mine from college and a woman from my Monday night Bible Study group are all expecting babies in July (same month as my birthday!).
I also will be making 2 for a charity baby shower for an organization that my church partners with, Alternatives Pregnancy Center. I have a bit of a soft spot for this organization because they confirmed my pregnancy with my son, and provided his first ultrasound. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to give something back. I haven’t decided whether to do 2 gender neutral pieces or one for each gender. We shall see.
