Fleece blankets

I love making these blankets. For 3 winters in a row I have made them for us and given them as gifts at Christmas.
A print on one side, a solid on the other and zig~zag stitch around.  Don't forget to leave a 6-7" opening for turning, then close your opening. People also like the "no-sew" or "tie-blankets" where 4-6" inch long strip are cut all around the perimeter and tied together so that no needle and thread or sewing machine is needed!
Here I've shown just 2 of the blankets I've made. The red one for our dog, (if you don't make them their own they might steal yours!) and the animal kingdom one for me. Hubby has one with a fishing bear. (not shown as it was in use at the time). So everyone here will be warm for the coming winter :)

Gelato Face!

Today would have been Holly's 14th Birthday. We always took her out on her birthday and one of our stops would be for gelato.
I loved those times, and all my time with her...  She is still so missed.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOLLY! We love you!
