I have become a blanket person. I have made quite a number of little vintage blankets from my stash of fabrics. I know they’re out there, making children’s beds pretty, warming someone’s toes or making someone smile. And today another one has found it’s new home. He’s a lovely blanket in a good junior size (100 x 140 cm) in brown and blue tones with babyblue organic terry backing. He has rounded corners like they all do. I’m told he has siblings at his new home.
Unfortunately the light has been awful around here for many days. It’s been rainy and grey. That makes it sort of hard to capture his true personality. Making blankets like this makes my day shine, though. I have finished a bunch for a wholesale order. Here’s a production line pre-quilting snapshot. I love the process.
New stash makes me happy too! These are Liberty fabrics waiting to be turned into blankets and bedding and cute little dresses. Today was last day of school for the girls. Now awaits more than two months of summer holiday. It’s crazy! It’s a good thing for this little family; the girls get 5 weeks with me and 5 with their dad- not in a row though. I think I would die if I had to miss them for 5 weeks!
Who would you hate to be without for 5 weeks? And would you take comfort in Liberty stashes and blanket sewing?
