It's almost Christmas!

I haven't written for almost three months. You'd think I'd been busy! I have been productive. I made all my Christmas cards, using different styles and techniques for each of them. I also made fleece blankets for my daughter's two cats and her boyfriend, and my son's girlfriend. There are so many fleece prints out there you can customize them for anyone.

These are double layers of fleece with six-inch fringe tied together. They are super-fast and super-easy. Each blanket takes two metres each of two fabrics. I use one print and one solid. Just lay them together right sides out and trim edges. Cut a six-inch block out of each corner, and then cute a one-inch fringe six inches deep all the way around. Tie the two layers of fringe in a double-knot all the way around, and you're done.
