Crafting Cogs Engaged

Although it's long over due, my crafting cogs are engaging.  With the wonders of blog world and internet surfing as inspiration; the wheels are slowly slipping back into gear.  And just in time for the holidays too!


To ease them back into movement I started with an couple of old baby blankets that are no longer of use ~ I say this with sad heart as my Grand loves have outgrown them.  So Grandma decided to put them to use for herself.  I picked up some material at the Good Will store to use for covering them.  So for the total price of a buck a piece I have two little lap robes to take the chill off our upcoming winter nights.  They will be just big enough to lay across the lap for that tiny bit of extra warmth.

What a great project! I love the fabric that you found, and I love the way you re-used the old blankets.
Clever girl :)

YOU'VE CHANGED YOUR LOOK!!! It has been a while since I could visit my friend's blogs. Looks nice!

You are such a crafty woman. I sometimes envy people with that talent. I don't have the patience!!

Oh NO! You told me you were covering up old blankets; but not Winnie & Tigger and Mickey and Donald!! What the helllllllllllo were you thinking!!!!
Just kidding.
Great find on the fabric and what a good idea you had there:) It's good to see you're using your creative mind for something useful besides day dreaming. Gosh... I miss you!!

Artistic to the MAX! You have put a great idea into action and I'm sure it will bring much warmth to the lap and to the heart each time you use them. Fantastic, Cher.
