I have memories of working on this August sheep blanket while the ship was traveling through choppy waters--I was as close to being seasick by that evening as I ever got. Hubby had picked up Sea Band "bracelets" for both of us, and they helped greatly once I finally put mine on that evening! By the way, the tree on the left side of the blanket is supposed to be a weeping willow, but mine turned out looking more like a palm tree--ARGH! Oh, well, I like it anyway. Better than the tree on the other side--which looks pretty much like the pattern. Odd.
I also finished one of the two Sew Spooky blocks I brought with me, but I'll show that one another time; I'm bringing the second block with me to work on this weekend, so maybe I'll be able to show both of them soon.
Today I added pink borders to the Schnibbles quilt and I like it--it seems to calm down the brighter fabrics in the line and makes the quilt look more "girly." After I've quilted this, I'll trim the borders a little smaller; or maybe I'll make scallops--I haven't really decided yet.
Finally, I'll tell you about the treat I promised. Monice of Hen House Designs has published a fall-themed pattern and she sent me a pattern to share with you. Cute, isn't it?!
If you'd like a chance to win the Pumpkin Festival pattern, please leave a comment asking to be entered in the drawing. As I've mentioned, I'll be away until Sunday evening, but I'll pick a winner then and post the results on my Monday blog post. If, however, you'd like to just buy the pattern now and not wait and trust your luck, you can visit Monice's Etsy shop by clicking HERE.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
