As you know by now, I have a very short attention span. That is to say, I am filled with total enthusiasm for a new project and put everything into it, obsessively crafting away...for a while, and then I get bored and have to go off and do something else, returning to the original work feeling more refreshed. I am doing this with with the circle in squares blanket. I have done over 50 squares now but needed a break. It was a friend's birthday recently so I got out my felt stash (isn't felt fantastic!!!) and made this....
I made the hearts freehand, embroidered it and then just blanket stitched it all together. I don't think I've done blanket stitch since I was at school but I really enjoyed making this while watching TV one evening. I love the idea of being able to make something from what I already have stashed away. The beauty of felt is, of course, that it doesn't have to be hemmed and so is ideal for quick little makes. It also comes in gorgeous colours.
