Blanket for a new little cousin

We had a new little boy born to our family late last year and I made this for him.
 We saw him in December and he is sooo cute.  He lives in Canada so we haven't seen him since, but I have seen pictures and he is growing like a weed!
 I just love this fabric-so perfect for a little boy!
 Usually I do the embroidery by hand, but my machine can do it also.  I programmed the name and date in and went to town.
 I also added all our names :o)  This embroidery is just ok.  The next one I do will be done by hand.  I like that MUCH better.
After sewing the front to the back and turning it.  I added this specialty stitch all the way around.  I love variegated threads - they are so fun!

Check out Tami's for more finished objects.

That fabric is perfect for a little boy.
What are little boys made of?
Slugs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails...

I love the embroidery too.

A true keepsake. The little doggie squares are my favorite. Nice job.
