The baby blanket, not my Etsy store. I'm almost there on my Etsy store though! I was shooting for Feb. 1st. But I think it's more realistic to say, Feb. 5th. We shall see.
I did add two more pendants. I painted them and sealed them with diamond glaze into the pendant. I used acrylic paints, but watered them down just a bit. I'm happy with how they turned out. I should really stick to the painting. I seem to be more pleased with those.
I did finish the blanket and since I keep my word... I'm posting pictures... even though I'm not really thrilled with how it turned out. BUT I did learn a lot and I expect my next blanket to turn out even better. I can't wait to start sewing lessons!! Learning by trial and error is fun (HA!!) but I'm ready to learn from a professional now.
I love the next three pictures. It looks like a great, pretty blanket.
This next one is an o.k. picture. You can see the seam where I totally let the sewing machine get away from me.
And here's the two pictures I really don't like. I had to hand sew this end and you can really tell it.
But, of COURSE I'm going to start on my next blanket before my sewing lessons start. I wouldn't be me if I didn't. I HAVE to put all I learned into action before I forget right? Right!
Now, I'm off to tackle the mound of clean clothes that must be folded. And I'm sure there are plenty of dirty clothes to be washed.
