Last week I saw this blanket posted on Asthetic Nest: http://www.aestheticnest.com/2010/08/sewing-heirloom-cut-chenille-baby.html
aaaaaannnd I wanted to try it. So Saturday morning I bought the fabric with my mom, who then helped me get all set up and ready and then I started to sew. and sew. and sew. I listened to the World Wide Leadership Conference
TWICE as well as some conversations on the Mormon Channel
after like, oh I don't know 5 hours of sewing, I went to the store and then came back and finished...at like 10 PM (thanks to the help of mom with the cutting...our hands still hurt!)
It is simple to make, but tedious. And if you want to make it, I strongly suggest you invest in the chenille cutter she talks about - I think if I make it again, that will be a MUST!!
Overall I am IN LOVE with the results. It made all the pain of it worth it (sorta like child birth I hear...)
I also stuck in my 38 week belly shot below. Enjoy! (11 more days!!)
