A couple projects...

 I thought I'd show you a couple projects I have been working on...in addition to the sewing for my orders and Etsy shops...these are what I do in the evening when I relax ...
 They are all a bit wrinkled...but they are works in progress...you know how that goes...this one goes with one I finished last year for the Fourth of July...I'm not sure if I will make a walling hanging for the front porch...or a table topper...
 This one I have been working on and off for a while...I started it on our vacation...made a couple smaller ones in between and now back to this one again...its for my cousin...a surprise...she doesn't read my blog...
 Its pretty big...it will fit over a twin size bed...so you get the idea...I make these for Project Linus in smaller sizes for kids and babies...I have made quite a few this size too...they take a while...my cousin saw the one I made for my great niece and wished she had one too...so I thought I'd surprise her with one...
It's very relaxing to work on...I can do it anywhere...and I have...cars, airplanes, hotels, out in the yard...the perfect project...and these blankets are wonderful to snuggle with in front of the TV or with a good book...since the fabric is cotton...it wears like a pair of jeans...just gets softer and more comfy as time goes on...anyway...I just thought you might like to see what I am working on right now...I have quite a few projects ready to go as soon as I finish these...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

Nice! You will love the mixer. I have the flex blade and love it. I do wish mine had a tilt up option. It does not!
Xtra cold, isn't it!!!
