Tropics Home Decor Throw Blanket!

Last week I got to make a tropics themed home decor throw blanket in the bold, vibrant colors of tropical birds (blue, yellow, red and green)!

Melanie in Australia contacted me about a custom throw and I felt so happy when I saw the photo she sent me of these bright bird paintings in her home that she was looking to match!

Melanie's been so fun and easy-going to work with and I love her funky style!  This is the colorful afghan throw that we came up with together:

Thanks, Melanie!

Throw Blanket for Baby Nursery!

Melissa asked me to make her this rose colored throw blanket to decorate her nursing chair in the nursery she decorated for her new baby girl! Congratulations, Mel, and I'm so honored that you chose one of my Crickets Home afghans as a Push Prize for Mama Mel! :)

Here are the photos of the nursery that Mel sent me with the blanket (I made the fringe in ivory, rose, burgundy, maroon, plum purple, sage green and deep teal to coordinate with the rest of the fun decor she'd already picked out):

After Mel's new arrival is weaned, then the will find a new home hanging in the corner of a ceiling in the room as a stuffed toy and doll hammock!
