Last night I wanted to work on something, but didn't feel like starting a new project. I still had a big piece of flannel left uncut so I decided to make the 2 more blankets I had fabrics for. I started around 9 and finished around 11, had both of them stitched and turned inside out. Of course I learned a lesson again when I didn't pay attention to the grain line at the first one and the backing/border fabric just stretched on me making mitering the corners a little more difficult than usual. At the second one you bet I made sure to match the grain lines on the top and backing.
We visited the Auto Show in NYC Today and after getting home I pressed and sewed down the edges with a cute zig-zag stitch, they came out pretty nice. I took them outside to take pictures of them on the grass in our front yard before it got dark. I don't know what I'm going to do with them yet since I don't have any friends expecting at the moment.

The other thing I did today was trying to catch up with my blogs since I didn't have time to read them in the last few days. I'm following a LOTS of blogs, right now I have 800 something unread blogs. Yes, that much... I wanted to see what happened today and just refreshed the whole list and found Marcia's blog on the top of my list. She was talking about how hard it was for her to get new readers, which I can totally associate with since I only have 8 followers at the moment :) I'm not saying that I want to be uber-popular because the followers I have are quality people and are commenting on my posts regularly. So I decided to add her button and link back to her blog and hope to get some more readers :) If You know anybody who is a new blogger please give them the link and anybody can link up to her website. Thanks so much!
