The Blanket

I first talked about this blanket a couple of weeks ago but I have been working on it for a year. I been so scared that Spencer wasn't going to be able to see it finished.

I have been working like a mad woman to finish this quilt top. This morning around 11 I finished it!

My sewing machine started throwing a fit last night. I thought it was because it'd been working a lot and was tired. I'd oiled it again, cleaned out the dust and then went to work on placing the blocks. This was at midnight last night. I was tired, The sewing machine was tired and Dedra was tired. So we all went to bed.

This morning my machine through a fit borderline conniption. I set it aside and with fear in my heart I got out my Mom's machine. This was the second time I've used it since she died. The first was to take in a skirt. I said a prayer asking Heavenly Father to tell me Mom that I won't break anything and that if she wanted to help me see she was invited to the party.

We finished the blanket top. I took pictures. I heading over to Spencer's house right now. I may post more very soon.

Here are some AWESOME pictures of the blanket that should have be the one Spencer and I had on OUR bed. You will also see now why he wanted a different one. Hahaha!

  1. I really like it! I don't think it looks ugly AT ALL. I would totally have it on my bed or thrown on my couch to snuggle up in on a cold winter's day. I think it's fabulous! Way to work so hard to get it done! I'll be looking forward to hearing what Spence says about it. ;)
