Baby Blankets for Twin Girls
It has been a while since I updated my blog. So much has been happening in my life, including retirement and monster snowstorms! However, I was able to finally finish a pair of baby blankets for a set of twin girls who were born last summer. I can't believe it took me that long to get the blankets completed and mailed out. Where on earth did the time go to? I did have several challeges with the blankets though. For some reason, I had an awful time with the binding because I wanted to use satin fabric and no matter what I tried, I couldn't get it to look just right. I finally settled on purchasing the packaged satin blanket binding and stitching it on them. Turned out okay, but I would have preferred to have my own binding as I had originally planned. Guess I need more practice with slippery fabrics!
