Son's block is nearly complete!

This is the "Socks, Socks, Socks, Socks" block from the Great American Afghan. It was my inspiration for my personalized blocks.

Son's name, date of birth, weight, and time of birth. Yep, he was a big baby!

Duplicate stitch was fun and pretty easy once I got going. It's a great way to add color or personalize a project. I am sure I'll use it again in the future. My plan is to make a pair of little socks or baby booties to stitch onto the block like you see in the "Socks" block pictured above. I'll be working on the socks/baby booties next... then it will be time to start stitching this afghan together. I am also exploring options for a border to go around the entire afghan to bring it all together.
