Fluffy Redux...


I finished something!

This was definitely a learning experience, and already I know a number of things that I would do differently. (Can you believe that I had never done the blanket stitch? Thanks to PrettyImpressiveStuff for the nice illustration that taught me how...)

I am pleased with this, if for no other reason than:

• I actually finished something.
• I learned a new trick.
• I made something without a pattern - which I've never done before. (Well, technically, I don't guess I have a pattern for the Monster Blanket, but since it's not finished, we'll let this count.)

Now Fluffy is all nice and warm, just in case we get any snow....
You can click on his picture to get more detail.

Last night, we were all excited because we saw approximately 6 flakes swirl about in the parking lot at Target. When we got home, I thought I'd check weather.com to see if there was more where that came from. While at weather.com, I learned that the entire NorthEastern seaboard is due for paralyzing snowfalls. Kind of makes our 6 flakes seem less of a big deal.....

Also - feel like my luck is changing, for the better. Got an e-mail from the pillow lady; she's sending another one - with a UPS tracking number that shows it should be here by Tuesday! Happy Valentine's Day! Also, found another source of eyes for Henry, so I don't need to wait for that slow-boat-from-China delay!

Thanks for the link. I have never done a blanket stitch either. I really don't know how to correctly do any hand sewing. I have gotten better at the slip stitch (I think that is what it is called) but I don't want anyone looking too closely at my work!
