last spring i started making a blanket for my grand daughter lucy. it was to be for her birthday in june. it didn't get made. when she visited in the summer, i pulled out the pieces i had cut up from old chenille bedspreads and she put them in the order she wanted. we pinned them together and that's as far as we got. it's all been sitting on top of my sewing machine for months. so, yesterday, with my last yarn order sent off, i cleared away the fleece, the drum carder. made room for my sewing chair and got down to sewing.
