I stitched a silk swaddling blanket from silk dyed with avocado stones, coleus leaves, onion skins and saffron. Our third grandchild is due next week, the same day we fly to South Africa for most of April. I wanted something special to be wrapped around this babe so he/she will be be held by my stitches. I had exactly the right amount of silk dyed. This will be so soft and light in the summer with its cotton batting. It is meant to be washed and used up.
