The Monster Blanket is finished - hallelujah!

It's called Monster Blanket because of this:

That's my three seater couch under there.   A counting mistake at the beginning of the project turned it into an incredibly long blanket.  On the plus side, it will cover all of you when you are lying under it.  No having to decide if you want your shoulders or your feet covered.  It can also cover two people sitting at opposite ends with no tug-of-war match.  The dog can even sit in the middle and everyone still has enough blanket.  So it's all good.  I'm still happy to be finished it though, it was feeling like the never ending project.  I already have the yarn for my next blanket, and you can believe it when I say I will be extra diligent about my counting at the beginning!

October 11. 2012

A few things I worked on in September and October.  I can't decide how to finish the cross stitch just yet; am trying to think past framing or small pillows.

This burlap and felt banner will go on my mantle next Thanksgiving.  Fingers crossed anyway!

My variation on an ornament from Glendon Place in the JCS Halloween issue:

A freebie from Sullivan's Floss.  The green fabric is actually much brighter than what shows here.

A free design from Plum Street Samplers.  I finished the stitching just before Thanksgiving Day and meant to post it, but the weekend was just too lazy relaxing!

'Gather' by the Trilogy.  I made fimo leaves but I like these better that I just found the other day.  I still need to stitch them on.

Some holiday fimo pins I have been wanting to try for a very long time.  It was a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon at the kitchen table.

The Monster blanket is almost done.  I'm not feeling well today so I plan on curling up under it and sewing in the rest of the ends and adding a quick border to the two short ends.  Libby is going to lose her cozy spot!
