More Projects Than You Can Shake A Stick At!

All those music keyfobs in the post earlier this week were an order from a friend of my Big Sis' that I received during my visit to see the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef, just thought I'd mention that, as apparently I confused some people (unintentionally, I promise!)

So last night, hearing that my DD was considering a fast trip in to visit this weekend, I scurried to finish a couple of things I wanted her to have, rather than waiting and having to pay for shipping:

My daughter plays the violin, and I had a bit of this wonderful border print fabric with violins on it from years ago (long out of print, sadly). So knowing how much she needs things to corral the huge number of keys she ends up carrying - why do we need so many keys? My key fob is like a dead weight in the bottom of my purse, and if I split them into two? I can't find the right one at the right time, even with my Nana Sadie Rose "a pocket for everything and everything in it's pocket" handbags!! *wink*

Anyway. When I was in Northern Virginia, Big Sis and I shopped fabric stores galore. I do mean that, btw...They have way more up there than we do. (sigh)

I found this delightful kitten fleece print at Hancock Fabrics and bought enough to make a small throw for my baby granddaughter. It's one of the "no-sew" styles, but...

You can probably figure that I can't leave well enough alone. Once tied, I stitch all around just above the ties, to be sure that even if the double sides of fringes come untied, the top and bottom layers don't gap apart. I guess I just think it's safer that way, but maybe it's just that I'm Nana Sadie Rose and the sewing machine has to factor in every fabric-related item I make? Ok...guilty as charged!

I hope she'll love it. (I'm not worried about my daughter, I know she will, I mean my Granddaughter!)

What a wonderful blanket!! I know your granddaughter will love it - I bet it becomes one of those things that gets carried around long past the day when it still seem reasonable, because it's got so much love in it :)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
