I've been working on cards, but what I wanted to share with you today is what I was working on today. Before MM was born, I made 4 small blankets that were exactly alike. They were 20" x 24" and just big enough to cover him in the car seat when he was small, and small enough when he got bigger to take it with him and not drag it on the floor. The reason for 4 was so that my DD could make sure there was always a clean one on hand. At any rate, a friend of mine wanted some help to make some of these for her soon to be born grandson, She came out today for some instructions.
Here's the first one with the bias binding ready to be sewn to the blanket. The trick I figured out how to do, is sew the binding with mitered corners and then insert the main part of the blanket inside the binding square.
Then late this afternoon, I was washing dishes as I was cooking supper, I looked out the window to this shot of our sunset today. We've had gray, gloomy weather for days, and today was a gorgeous sunshiny day. This was the perfect end to it.
