Baby Blanket

It's been busy around here. When is it not, right? We were thrilled this past weekend to take a little road trip to meet my new niece. She is a precious little thing. But we couldn't go empty handed could we?
So I whipped up a little flannel blanket.  Nothing new and out of the ordinary I know.  But I did add the fat rick rack and I think it's adorable.  It just adds a fun element to it.
Another little extra:  I used my Silhouette to add the Letter A.  (It stands for her name.)  I love the personalized touch.  With the left over material I made a little lovey. 
 My kids have loved having a small blanket they can carry around easily.  Plus, what is it about tags that kids love?  My little man has practically worn out the tag on his.  Ever since he was tiny he would rub it on his cheek and ear.  Hopefully Baby A will love this just as much.
That's what I worked on this weekend.  How about you?
