I also made some baby blankets for my friends who are going to be new moms~One is having a boy and the other a girl!! So excited for them!!!! You would think after having quite a few rounds of practice I have finally got a hang of this, but this time I ran into some trouble with the little bird fabric. Apparently the sot did not gave me a square cut, so I almost didn’t have enough fabric!! after a few try I finally got it to work. I’ll have to remember to ask for a square cut next time when I’m in the store.


Pattern: Sew Much Ado "Ric Rac Receiving Blanket
Size: 40” x 40” & 36” x 36”
Completion Date: 04-11-2012

Michaels had a 30% off all purchase coupon this past Saturday, and I wanted to take full advantage of it, so I went and did a crazy thing – I bought all the DMC thread that I did not have!!! The poor girl that helped me at check out had her work cut out for her, since they had to scan each and every one of them, not to mention I froze up their machine because it exceeded the total limit so she had to void that transaction and start all over again!!!!! I felt sooo guilty making her do all that work, don’t think I’ll show up in that store anytime soon…


Thank you all for your lovely comments in my last post, may you all have a wonderful evening~~


  1. Congratulations to the lucky winner! Looks like you have a wonderful trip to Paris. Those vacation photos are beautiful! :) Thanks for sharing them! Both baby blankets are so cute and sweet. Great choice on choosing the fabrics, Theresa! Enjoy your new DMC threads and happy stitching!

  2. Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! Theresa! I have NEVER won a giveaway! Thank you so much! I just let out a squeal of delight. The dog thinks I am nuts. My email is
    The blankets look great. You really made me laugh with the floss purchase. That is a great idea though. :)

  3. Congratulations to the winner!
    Wow, lovely blankets and great addition to DMC collection!


  4. Congrats to Vickie for winning!!

    I love those baby blankets Theresa! I should make one for my friend's baby since they look easy and fast to make! I laughed a bit about the Michael's thing because that's happened to me too! I wish they could just type in how many DMC threads you are buying instead of individually scanning them all in! But I get why they do it (for inventory).

  5. Congrats to sweet Vickie.
    Love your blankets.
    Would love to have seen you sorting all those threads out what fun.

  6. I think that is great that you were able to buy all of that DMC for 30% off, Theresa!! I bought quite a bit, too, but only had a 25% off coupon.

    Love the blankets you've made for your friends' babies--they'll be put to excellent use, I'm sure.

    Congratulations to the lucky winner, too :)

  7. Super cute blankets!!!!!!
    And congrats on completing your DMC collection!!! That's always super handy, to have all the colors on hand. Plus, it's always fun to look through them all at home, so many possibilities!!


Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to leave a comment or feedback. I appreciate them all~
Happy stitching~~
