I really love this blanket. The colors, the drape, everything. I wish I had a beach house with a porch overlooking the ocean, where I could wrap this around my shoulders, lay on a deck chair, watch the sea birds, and smell the salty air.
In reality, it will keep me company in the corner of my sewing room, draped across my old chaise lounge chair which faces a messy closet jammed full of fabric. If I open the window I can smell the dairy cows down the street. Hee Hee, Not quite the beach, but I call it home. Oh well the blanket is DONE! And did I say I loved it already?
We've had this chaise for nearly 20 years, and the only thing wrong with it, is the faded plum colored upholstery. I would love to get it re-covered, or maybe make some slip covers, but for now I am covering it with an old white Matalisse bedspread.
The little pillow was a discount store purchase. It's made out of orange corduroy, and the basket of flowers is stitched in french knots. So cute!! I made the quilt in the background about 3 years ago.
