New Baby Blanket Order

happy Sunday to you all

hope you are enjoying the weekend!

I am happy and excited to tell you

I got a new order in for a baby blanket



what started with color selection, finding matching yarn, and a draft pattern

all negotiated with the lovely lady who ordered the blanket


is quickly becoming one of my favorite blankets so far

I love the fresh color combination


and what is better than a lazy Sunday afternoon

reading a beautiful Dutch magazine

and adding a few rows to this pretty newborn girl blanket?

just in case you like to order your own blanket

find my e-mail address on the right and let me know what you are looking for!

  2. Hoi Maaike,

    Wat ontzettend leuk om dit soort opdrachten te krijgen! Je hebt prachtige kleuren gekozen voor het baby dekentje. Wanneer je zo doorgaat kun je een Etsy winkeltje beginnen!

    Van jouw stofjes beleef ik nog steeds veel plezier. Twee heb voor een schort gebruikt. Ik heb nog een klein lapje van de groene stof over voor een volgend project. Ik ben er nog niet uit waar ik het voor ga gebruiken. In de tussentijd is het perfect decoratiemateriaal voor een fotoshoot :-)!

    Een fijne nieuwe week!

    1. Hi Jill, that is the Dutch '101 Woonidee├źn' and actually it is the page that announces the Feb 2012 issue. I wonder if it is available outside of the Netherlands?
