Newest Throw: In Memory of Dad

Needing something to keep me busy during this last week, I threw together a small blanket with some of my favorite fabrics. Completed last night, I'm considering naming it In Memory of My Dad, we'll see. Iris, my daughter, chose the backing out of the choices I had available and I think she chose the perfect one. I wrote his obituary during this last week.

Batted with Bamboo/Cotton, I simply pulled the backing around to the front and machine-stitched it down. I will do some tying today to keep the layers together, but for the most part-it's finished.
Labeling it will be important so I'll do something special.

Thanks for all your sweet messages; I hope this is the last death of a loved one for a bit, no ?~! I could use a break. Summer's coming and the Baby will spend most of his time with his mama, so perhaps there will be a sewing marathon in my near future. I have plenty of supplies !~!

Happy Thursday. I'll link up to some Parties when I return from early morning work commitment.

Linking up with TGIFF and Needle and Thread Thursday and Tami's Amis.


  1. It came out beautiful. I love the backing's multi colours. Good choice by Iris. She's got her Mother's excellent eye for colour combos, me thinks.

  2. Tthanks, my dearest sister so farking far away. I wish you were close enough to feel it as you sip a requisite hot beverage if you're "sad" or celebratory Cylon toast if you're joyful. I think finishing a new piece is cheerful; so let's get crackin' on that toast. Butter softened as per your instructions :)
