You can see it here :o)
And this is how I made my version of a "Busy Blanket" for MA. ;o) I wanted to share in case you have a Love to make one for too.
I used pink because MA loves pink. I used my olfa scallop blade to cut my pieces.
The thickness of the 2 pink rectangles were ideal to sew on. The thread/knots held better. I used silver sparkly thread. If I'd had more fleece I would have made the blanket with 2 pieces back to back instead of one piece.
I raided my bits and bobs sewing/craft boxes and pulled out what I knew MA would enjoy fiddling with.
I wrote my name on the tag so she can "see" I made it. She forgets.
That's a little pewter lady bug on the right corner of the "label".
I hope and pray it inspires your creativity!
I found this quote recently and loved it! So true isn't it!
"Conversion is not the smooth, easy-going process some men seem to think… It is wounding work, this breaking of the hearts, but without wounding there is no saving… Where there is grafting there will always be a cutting, the graft must be let in with a wound; to stick it onto the outside or to tie it on with a string would be of no use. Heart must be set to heart and back to back or there will be no sap from root to branch. And this, I say, must be done by a wound, by a cut.”
