A Gift

I am giddy right now because a really close friend of mine (our parents introduced us when I was 12, awww how cute), just had a baby girl. Finally a baby girl to sew for. It's been kind of boy heavy lately among my friends. What's even better is she doesn't know about my blog so I can post things that I make for her baby in real time. Did I ever mention that only three people I know besides Chef, know about my blog? Hi there friends in far away places. So back to the giddy excitement.
 I've had this Alexander Henry print for ages. I sure wish I could find some more. I don't even know the name of it. It's an Asian inspired design that can work for both girls or boys, but kind of leans toward a girl vibe. My friend is a yoga instructor and really likes the whole Zen vibe which I think this blanket embodies. 

p.s. I didn't pose Cenzo's hand on the package... clearly he is sad to see this gift leave the house. I could almost hear him say "no, it's mine", only it sounded more like baabamada.

Hi, I happen to have a piece of that fabric. The selvage says: "Koto" The Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection 2006. Here it is on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Koto-Blue-Asian-Dragon-Alexander-Henry-Fabric-BTY-/280584085734?pt=US_Fabric&hash=item41541d60e6. Your blankie looks very soft and cozy!

I just found some at Joann's here in Oregon and used my 40% off coupon for a really good deal. It's one of my favorites too so I bought a ton!
They have AH fabrics every once in a while and I was so happy to find some there. I would try there first if you are near one.
