A Black Cat and Some Christmas Blankets.


I finished a little cross stitch for Halloween.

This is "Black Cat Alphabet" by JBW designs from the 2012 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue.
I finished it as a cube,  and decided not to put a bow on the top so it can fit in one of the cubbies of my shelf.

Brenda also made some Halloween crafts...these little spool guys are from " Make it Yourself"  Fall/Winter 2013. But the new 2014 "Holiday Crafts" also has them.

I am trying hard to use the craft supplies and fabrics that I have at home. Just too much stuff! I had some fleece (that is so bulky to store) and some Christmas fabrics.

So, I made three blankets lined with fleece.

For these two I used fabrics from the line "In from the Cold" by Moda Fabrics. The polka dot fabric  for the borders is from Joann's.

This one I made using a very old fabric from Daisy Kingdom. I have this fabric for ages and did not know what to do with it.  I normally will not tie quilts or blankets, but because it came out a little puffy,  I did the old tying thing.

I am glad I made something useful with some of my "stuff". Now, let's see if we can use them this's so hot now, that does not feel like Fall at all, here in Southern California.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!

  1. What a cute kitty--I just love JBW designs... And good for you for using up some of your fabric stash--all of the blankets look so cheerful and warm.

    I love the spools Miss Brenda made, too--cute and easy... How wonderful that she has inherited your love of crafting :)
