I refrained. I did not make the lap blanket I thought was a foregone conclusion when I first received the fabric.
Instead, I did make the over-sized burlap basket for my spinning needs, and there it sits, large and empty, waiting to filled to the top with fleece. Yes, I’m ready now for a whole sheep.
I also made a cushion cover, for this piece of fabric was one I was mesmerised by – it just took my breath away, and I wanted it to shine a little light all of its own. I made piping to give the cover a finished look, and I love the way it ‘pops’ whilst nestled with all the other cushions.
And with some scraps I made a small table runner, or mat. Not really a necessity, but it pulls all the new colours in the room together somewhat.
And the best bit? I still have loads of fabric left! Maybe I will make a blanket after all…. *twitch*…. just to scratch that itch….
