I’m working on a beach blanket that will be thin and small, yet long enough to fit me and my 6′ 5″ of husband on it. I decided on 7′ by 4.5′ but really it’s going to be massive, isn’t it? There’s just nothing small and compact about making a blanket to suit such tall purposes. I’ve been thinking about this project for a very long time. I found the yellow chair print at Value Village months ago. I then added the polka dots and the sparrows, and just recently the black gingham and the goldfish. I managed to piece about half of it together last night and have hopes of finishing the top altogether tonight. I’d really like to have the blanket done for our trip to the beach next week (despite the weather forecast of rain and 50 degrees, a girl can hope!).
