It's the thought that counts

 Do you remember my blanket crafting project?
What with Mother's Day coming up, I've been working especially hard on it.
Oh, I know what you are thinking...that after all this time I should be done with all of that fringing and lacing.  Well, let me tell you, it's a big blankie!  It takes a lot of time...not to mention kitty spit...
Of course, while I was at it with the lacing project, I got another brilliant idea.  Since the blanket is so big, why not cut it in half and then I can do two projects instead of one!
 Check this out...
I may need mom's help with the scissors...
Not only can I have the stylish lace and fringed blanket...
I still have some lace work to do...cutting the blanket
in two took longer than I thought...
Look what else I decided to make...
Just a leetle more work to join those two holes and
make one big hole for mom's head to fit through.
Do you see?  It's going to be a poncho for mom.
Just in time for Mother's Day!
I still have a bit of work to do to make the head-hole bigger.
Do you think she'll like it?


  1. Oh, she'll LOVE it! I did something very similar to the quilt on Mom and Dad's bed and my mom got VERY excited about it! Way to go, Pip!
    Yours sincerely,

  2. You are obviously a fabric artist. Some artists are never appreciated though.

  5. Oh, Pip, she is going to LOVE it! Awesome job!
