Hello Friends! I have finally finished the blankets for Reece and Brigam. Several of you ladies had ask to see them when they were finished. So here goes.
With Reece's I choose a no sew tie technique. It is easy, but I do think it takes as much time as the sewing method with all the cutting it requires.
This is the opposite side of the skier fabric. It reads "I Love Canada".
Here is Brigam's minky blanket. I hand stitched around several of the Penguins to tie the two fabrics together. The minky is such a plush fabric that the stitches didn't even show on its surface. The Penquin fabric is a very soft terry fabric, which will work nicely against the baby face, I think!
I'm now headed to the kitchen today to cook up a few freezer casseroles and desserts to take with us to our son and DIL's this weekend. I'm thinking I'm going to try the red velvet cupcakes I saved in my Pinterest account. I'll let you know how they turn out and if they're presentable I'll even post them-ha!
One last photo I had to share with you. This is the snow from our metal roof as it slowly was sliding off the other morning. You can even see the seams outlined in the snow! I'm calling it a 'snow canopy'.
The temperature right now is-12C or 10F. So the snow is no longer sliding off the roof, that's for sure. I'm glad that I can once again enjoy another day of nesting.
Let me know how your day is taking shape so far!
