i am just starting to fall a little bit in love with sewing. i have my lovely long term loan singer here with me and i am starting to catch myself glancing at her and thinking she is pretty.
my first “real” project has been working up a baby blanket as a gift copying the design of baby blankets each of my children received as gifts when they were born from a very creative member of my family. here are some iphone pictures of chickpea’s blanket so you can see what i am going for:
she uses several different colors of thread to make her super hip seaming on the blankets but i opted for the easy version and bought a variegated thread. here is where i am at now:
so devoted friends and readers give me your personal opinions – do i call this blanket done? or do i keep going around and around making more seams?
i should tell you that i took the plunge and ordered some doll kits in hopes that i could make up a doll for each kiddo for the holidays. they have arrived but are sitting in the box unopened because i told myself that i would not open that project up until the blanket was done. first of all so i didn’t distract myself and fall into my habit of not finishing what i started. secondly because i am scared that i will open the box and realize that there is no way i am going to pull off a crafting project of this magnitude (twice) in the next few weeks.
ok, so come forth and leave your vote in comments. declare this blanket complete and open the doll box or continue the zen like activity or seaming this blanket around and around and around and around?
