Earlier I was reading Anita’s blog where she talked of her beautiful Babette Blanket and the different ways to sew squares together. Immediately I was reminded of my black and white blanket, all stuffed in a box waiting to be finished. I started this poor thing 20 years ago. 20? How can that be? No finish line for her. She was never finished partly because I started college and I was too busy enjoying all that that offered but also because, like Anita, I was less than thrilled with the time it took to get all the pieces together…and I used the whip stitch, or “fast way”, Anita spoke of..shame on me for letting her lay there for 20 years. Looking at her now, I still love her; she’s very crisp, I think. Sigh. I’m going to have to finish her now. I can see that she’s crying out to me. Poor pitiful thing.
