Luckily before the storm came I had the good sense to go to Goodwill & grab some sweaters so that I could make one of these. I found a great piece of material at JoAnn Fabrics in the remenant aisle for the back & got to work all day Saturday. Then when it was time to sew her shut, my machine kind of died on me. I got the machine when my mom passed away & I think it just needs some oil because it is making one hell of a squeaky noise & the bobbin thread keeps catching. I even sewed little heart buttons in the middle of each square while watching Lost the other night.
It is such a warm blanket, I feel asleep on the couch yesterday while the boys napped. Now as soon as this snow clears a little I am taking the machine in to get some oil so I can start making some of these! Let the Spring thaw begin!
