Welcome to the February 2018 Theme
LOVING the design of your blanket, Diane......and sewn together soooooooo neatly. Do you machine sew or hand sew it together?
Glad you like the blanket. The blanket is hand sewn together, it all looks quite neat on top but underneath is a different story:((
My maternal grandmother would be very upset to see my handiwork (she was a seamstress). Needlework was my worst subject at school, and when I had to make half a pair of shorts for my GCE exam my heart hit the floor!!!
I hear you, Diane. I did Home Economics (cooking and sewing) in high school, because I thought that's what I should be doing. I should have done woodwork, like a lot of my friends were doing.....I might have been better at that. I had a lot of unfinished sewing items and I think I used to get a 'C' for my efforts.....I was sooooo slow and couldn't sew in a straight line (still can't) to save myself!!!
My sister became a Home Ec teacher....she is a brilliant cook and seamstress. Ros made her wedding dress and some of her bridesmaids dresses, my wedding dress and some of my bridesmaids dresses. I was obviously standing at the back of a long line when those skills were being given out....rofl.
What a bright beauty! Your work is always super neat Diane and this blanket is perfection :))
Well done, Diane! I love your blanket very much.
Fantastic work Diane!
Oh I say - this is really lovely!
That is beautiful!
Wow Bev! What a stunner, this is such a beautifully crafted square :))
A fabulous square, Bev. So detailed, so beautifully done. Thanks, Bev!! You're a star.
