I finally took these blankets outside!

And they looked lovely in the sunlight. I love the close ups, especially. Here's a turquoise and red, and the colors look very true to life here. They are both just perfectly bold and deep. Some colors get so intense and gorgeous on bamboo. And, oddly, others don't. Another that just knocks my socks off is the marigold below, it's super intense and lovely in real life. Baby A has a blanket just like this one. I love it, but I have to say it makes me even more annoyed that amazon sent me the apple green stroller instead of the tangerine I ordered. Wah! This blanket would look so much better with the orange stroller.

This one is marigold and wedgewood blue. I actually think it looks a lot better in person. I am posting it for the pose, though. This may end up a regular shot I do with my blankets. I love how it shows off the drapiness. And I think most of the colors I use will look beautiful against the leaves.

And this one is the same better black and baby pink blanket I showed in a previous post.

Sometime when husband has got M with him, I'm going to have to take all of my blankets over to the park for pics on the grass and then hang them on the fence for a pic and lay them out on the floor, too, so there're a good variety of views. It's so hard for me to give up that sewing time though. Sigh.
