Learning to tie

After I made some scarves..

 I had some left over fleece..

 I am self teaching myself how to tie blankets..

 I am making small versions for the cats..

I did a square knot first… that was easy..but it was too gathered…

 Now..I am doing looping knots..a little harder..because of my fat fingers.. and it is laying nicely…

 Those who tie blankets do you prefer square or looping?​

Finally Finished Wreath

Here it is…

I finally finished the Cowboys wreath…

It took 4 yards of fabric to finish it…

Plus, waiting for the money  to get the fabric…

I didn’t  like to leave it half way done….

It bothered me that it took me almost two months to finish it…

I am happy that I am finally done with it …

Now to finish my other projects…

Blanket Fort


Since it is a snow day for me..

I am not sure what I am doing…

I am still under a lot of stress..

I don’t care what my mother -in-law has to say…

I am tired of her treating me like crap…

She says she is training me to have a better life…

My youngest daughter has a better plan for herself…

 A blanket fort!!!

I miss those days!!!
