Running Stitch Blanket by Purl Bee

Another gift for my Sister In Law is the running stitch blanket by the Purl Bee.  I really love the idea because its an easy blanket, but the running stitch adds a personalization to it.  I also considered embroidering the baby's name on the solid side, but decided against it.  I know they have decided on a name but what if she comes out a boy?  Or what if they look at her and decide she looks like a "something else?"  I just figured it was better not to take any chances.  I know the Purl Bee did hers in all cotton, but I like the one side of fleece and one side of cotton.  It makes it a little thicker, but not too thick.  Since you can't really see the running stitch very well in this picture here's another one where you can see it better.

I had bought a specific green to match the green in the blanket, but could not find it for the life of me.  Of  course the day after I finished the blanket I found it.  I'm not sure if that's how your life goes, but it sure is how mine does.   Maybe it's something that gets better with age, though I doubt it.  I'm still plugging away at my sister's wedding gift.  Only 2 weeks left to finish it!
