My Creative Space Thursday


The other day I finished off a baby blanket for a friend of mine who is due in a couple of weeks. I am getting MUCH better at planning my projects and making sure I finish them by a due date (rather than 6 months after the baby is born!!) Plus I am forcing myself a bit more to only work on ONE project and finish it before I start a bazillion others!

The blanket is a cotton flannel, with English paper pieced appliqu├ęd flowers across the top, with matching binding around the edges. The spotty material is from spotlight and the centres are Japanese fabric with monkeys, deer and mushrooms.

This is a picture of the hexes before I sewed them onto the blanket.

I'm envious that you're managing to focus on due dates and concentrating on one project at a time. That's one of my goals, but so far no luck. Beautiful baby blanket. Your friend is going to love it.
