It's been a long time since I posted something for Illustration Friday. Today, I find that I actually have something that fits the theme.
I embroidered this when I was pregnant with my first child. (That would date it to 1986.) This was a period in my life when I did very little in the way of art, so I remember being very proud of it.
It was actually a cloth diaper, and I had intended to use it as a burp rag, or maybe let the kid carry it if he wanted to, like Linus or something. Turned out, Michael wasn't a blankie type of kid. Brice was, though, but not for this one. He bonded with a little yellow blanket that he had.
I don't think I saved any of their little clothes, and very few books and toys. But I held onto this little blankie baby. Maybe someday, I'll have a grandchild to give it to.
