Weekly Recap

I've been stitching like mad this week so I can meet some self-imposed deadlines.

First up were two fleece blankets, both blue. I bought them more than a decade ago. They were supposed to be no sew blankets. Just trim the edges, cut some fringes and tie them to each other to make a two sided blanket.  Easy right?  No, not really, since one is about half an inch shorter than the other one. I could have trimmed one but I didn't want to mess up the design, and decided to just finish each one separately with a zigzag stitch. It might be better to have two blankets instead of one anyway - it won't get too hot and you can always use two if it is really cold. It is stitching even though it isn't quilting.

The second was the housewarming present I showed you yesterday.

The cute cat blanket in the picture is not mine.
