Hey Ya'll!

Okay... I got excited I have both of them done

Here are the two options that I came up with. when I uploaded them to photobucket some of the detailing got a little fuzzy but other than that I'm happy with how they turned out However, if any of ya'll dont like them please just let me know and I'll try to come up with something else

Here is the first one:



Here is the second one:



Please let me know which one you like best!

Love,
Lexie

Hmmm...tough choice.

I like the first one the best except for the baby, I think. Looks a little too real to me.

I really like the background and the lettering. I wonder how hard (or if it would even look good) to throw in knitting needles or yarn into that spot?



Yeah, I have trouble even matching my clothes. I am not good at that kind of stuff.

Lexie, I love the designs you're making. I would recommend that you make one with LARGE LETTERS, because when the designs are made smaller, it's hard to read them.

So, the "extra" stuff should be small, and the letters should be big.

Lexie,

I really like the re-done button. The only suggestion I have is to maybe change the color of the text at the bottom from white to something darker. It's hard to read the part that lies on top of the yellow blanket.

Sandy had some good suggestions as well.

You're definitely on the right track! Thanks for all of your hard work. This is the kind of stuff I enjoy but just don't have time to do anymore.

In response to an earlier suggestion about a potential place to donate our blankets:
I personally strongly prefer that the blankets we work on stay here in the US. I think that for the size of blankets we are making, hospitals are the best destination (if we use similar measurements to what we have been doing they will be too small for most other charities).

I have numerous hospitals in my area, including one that specializes in high-risk pregnancies & neonatal intensive care as well as a dedicated children's hospital, so I will try to do some investigating to see if anyone up here (Seattle, WA) would be interested in receiving our blankets.
