Stash Buster Challenge - Baby Girl's Blanket Reveal

I told you I was going to finish baby girl's blanket this month and I did. I didn't use a pattern for this blanket, I put it together using ideas I found off of Pinterest. I made a few changes as I was working on it. At first I was only going to make 2 owls and then I decided I needed a 3 third. I was also going to put flowers in the corners, but then I changed my mind. Since owl are nocturnal I decided stars and a moon would be more appropriate. Now, this blanket wasn't entirely made from my stash. I bought the purple and gray yarn specifically for this project, but all the pink, greens, white, and brown yarn did come from my stash. I am very happy with out it turned out. It isn't perfect. My stitches aren't even through out some of it, especially along the edging, but I love it anyway, and I hope baby girl does too.

A close up on the flowers I put along the bottom. I used this Romanian point lace tutorial to make the stems

This is the star that I put in 3 of the corners. The pattern came from the book Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs.

The small stars and moon I put in the forth corner.

The owls, branches, and leaves

Here is a close up of each owl. I love the buttons I found for the eyes

Here is a close up of the bobble stitch pattern I used on the outside panels.

Baby girl looks very happy with the finished project

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
