doesn't look the best does it, but I managed to finish it
to discover I hadn't allowed enough blue for the top corner, and maybe for the bottom blue seam...I have added a little bit to the top, not sure what to do about the bottom seam just yet.
Then I ignored the things I had to do on the table and made something completely different!!
No 1 son works with children in a school two days a week and we had talked about weighted blankets to help children sit still and listen, so after looking at some tutorials I had a go,
sewing the vertical dividing lines onto the blanket
the plastic pellets go into each section, then they are sewn across
One weighted blanket!! I had to be careful all the pellets were away from the sewing line as if the needle hit one it would break!
I cut it a little short at the top but it is now secured with two rows of zigzag stitching, none of the pellets will becoming out.
We had a cool change come through this afternoon, the breeze from the south was wonderful.
PS. The supervisor now has a double who can stand in when he is other wise occupied!!
How cute is he?? Marina brought him back from The Netherlands for me, she found him in the Delft shop. It isn't easy to find ChowChow things, so I appreciate them a lot. Thank you very much Marina, you made my day!!
