A Weighted Blanket for my youngest Grandson!

Hi Stitchers and Stampers,

I finally made my grandson's weighted blanket. It's suppose to help keep him calm.  Here is the wording I used on Facebook.  My daughter said he loves it! If you can get a chance to make one, they are very easy to make. Also, it is very important to get the correct weight on the blanket. The weight should be 10% more than the childs' current weight. Take into account the polyfill and the fabric. I recommend weighing them both before measuring your ounces for your pellets.  My blanket turned out 2 lbs heavier. So 6 lb all in all, not bad since his little body is only about 3 rows right now. The other two rows on each side of him probably lay off of him on the bed. Also, no pellets on the outside rows. This will make the weight more centered on the child. I hope these tips help you. They are the same tips as given by I love my kids.

Finished my grandson’s blanket tonight. I bought 60 inches of fabric at 44 inches wide. I sewed the edges and i got 43” x 58”. I used 7 x 8 rows. The 7 rows measures 6 1/8” and the 8 rows measured 7 1/4”. I also only filled the middle rows. 2 ounces each hole. Two handfuls of the polyfill. Happy sewing!!

As Always, Happy Stitching and Stamping!!

Room is finally finished! Well almost...

it still needs some trim but other than than, I am ready to move in my tables and fabric and reorganize  the stamp room. I can't wait to get started. I've got one project in the works. I'll post photos below.

I bought this adorable shelf from the marketplace on Facebook and I'm repurposing it to a puppet theaters for the grands. So much fun!

Thanksgiving was most awesome! I got to spend it with my brother and his family for the 2nd year in a row. A toast to many more!!

I have some quilts to take photos of that still need binding. I'd better get busy. But for now here are the photos of my new space and the furniture remake.

Where has time gone! LOL I need to catch you up!

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I have been so lazy about not keeping up my blog. I've probably lost followers. :D. 

I will be catching you up on all I have quilted. We are going through a new remodel above the garage. You guessed it, a new sewing space! This gives us an extra room upstairs and now one room can go back to a bedroom. Yay!

Alrighty, enough already! I'll post a pic and then try to get you caught up on everything I've been quilting since the owl quilt. 

More storage needed :D haha

New Space is coming along nicely!

Ta Ta for now! Happy crafting!!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Hi Stitchers and Stampers,

Today I'm bringing to you another finished quilt off my to do list. This feels so good to get these done and gifted.

Only a couple more to go as gifts and then the rest of the year I'm sewing for myself. :)

Of course the row by row experience starts June 21 and I'm so excited to get on the road to collecting those free patterns. Kits come in handy if you're trying to win the prizes.  The license plates are very cute too!

Thanks for stopping by!

As always, have a happy day crafting!!!

Hi Stitchers and Stampers,

Quilting Lately!!!

Hi Stitchers and Stampers,

I've been alittle busy quilting lately. Fell in love with it! Here is a couple that I've been working on.

The quilting is done by a friend of mine. She's a great gal and really good at it!!!

The first quilt is for my 3 grandsons to use at the lake. Very fitting!!

This quilt was made for our newest great niece! She's a doll!

Alas, I'll be selling off some rubber stamps on Ebay.  I have one lot of house mouse listed right now. My ebay name is klikes99.  They are around $11 each for the lot. Stay tuned for more. Hopefully getting some more listed this week.

Hugs and happy crafting!!!
