Blanket stitching, fish faces and pink vespas!

Today I learned the blanket stitch, a useful stitch for joining two pieces of cloth at a seam. I really like it. In fact I liked it so much I used it to make my tri-colored draft excluder snake for our back door. Stew showed me the stitch before he left with Lu to go feed the weanlings at the ranch HQ and I had it done well before he got home.

I filled the snake with Pinto Beans, mainly because a 15 lb. bag of them was soooo cheap at Sam's Club

Here is the finished snake curled up on a bar stool at our breakfast bar. Menacing, heh?

When Stew and Lu got home, Lu made some fish faces.

And I finished my 'round the corner' pink vespa onesie. I think it turned out pretty cute. Working on a blue one too. Next project: antique aircraft designs and organic onesies!
