Blankets 20 – 27

Today was the big Blanket Day for my chapter of Project Linus.  I brought eight (modeled by Gibbs, who wouldn’t get off the couch): On the far left is three panels of fleeces, sewn together before I picked it up to crochet the edges.… Continue Reading “Blankets 20 – 27”

Project Linus 10 – 19 2013

These blankets went to Project Linus on Starbucks night, before I left town: The one on the left that is all messed up from the lighting has dinosaurs on it and is edged in Red Heart Black yarn.  The Winnie the Pooh is next,… Continue Reading “Project Linus 10 – 19 2013”

Blanket 9 – 2013

Finally, the last of this project!  The “pattern” is sort of goofy, but it did what I needed.  Namely come out even-ish and not too dark: Lion Heart’s Vanna brand in pink, white and..I forget what that gray color was called.

Blankets 1 – 8 2013

Blankets 74 – 82

The big bi-monthly Blanket Day for my chapter of Project Linus is next weekend, and I have these in the washing machine right now: You can’t see it very well, but there are pieces of Winnie the Pooh fleece embroidered onto the blue one… Continue Reading “Blankets 74 – 82”

Blankets 65 – 73

I brought nine finished blankets to Project Linus at Starbucks the other night.  Nine!  And I still had one fleece left at home.  In fact, these last two were finished and washed right before I walked out the door: The big panel with the… Continue Reading “Blankets 65 – 73”

Blankets 56 – 64 2012

I took the pictures, I washed the blankets, I even delivered them to Project Linus and I forgot to post the pics. This one started with the grey pieces.  I had planned to quilt them together over a year ago with a yarn that… Continue Reading “Blankets 56 – 64 2012”
