The dude's best man* recently had a baby, so I added the baby's initials with applique in a light bright "Tiffany's" blue. The blanket now looks more "finished" and ready for the recipient.
Congrats to baby Daniel Eliott Chen!
*We didn't have a best man or maid of honor at our wedding ceremony, but the dude's best friend is still fulfilling the best man duties - organizing the stag. Yup, it hasn't happened yet (dude was sick and on antibiotics before the wedding and stag didn't happen), I am not sure if this is a blessing or trouble.
