A year and a half a started this playpen mat for the firstborn of my best friend. It was one of those projects... I just wasn't satisfied, no matter what I changed about it. Who in the world wants a round playpen? I love curves, believe me, but I just couldn't come up with a nice design for this plaid. She bought a round playpen mat and I made a lot of presents to compensate the guilt. Now her second baby is due any minute. I finished the mat after all and it turned out quite well, actually. Since I originally started it for her first baby, I embroidered his name on it too. Now I'm waiting patiently for the little newborn. I also made a little sheet in the same theme. I'm pretty sure my friend has other things to care about, so I give you a little peek.
