nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

lime is the new black

After the owls & chocolate minky blanket I made as a housewarming gift for my friend, her brother came to live with her and he decided that he wanted one too. Now pink and brown is kinda girly, so I chose the whales in the carnival colorway with a lime green dimple dot, and I quite liked the punch that the green gave!

So there I am, thinking how much I like that green color, and how the store where I bought it at tried to get more in and can’t, and I saw a gorgeous lime green minky shag.  This is at the same time that I got my husband’s black shag for his man cave blanket, and he started telling me every day how amazing the minky shag is and how I need my OWN minky shag blanket. So I made one!

And I LOVE it!  This one, like the other shag, is about 72″x60″ making it the perfect size to curl up underneath and snuggle up to! And the green makes me forget that just last week, our house looked like this:


And there’s likely going to be more before summer is officially here.

a minky rampage!

I’ve become smitten with minky fabrics… I need a minky anonymous group. I now spend more time snuggling with minkies than with my husband… it’s a disorder, I need help.

It’s not my fault! I just keep finding softer and cuter fabrics ALL THE TIME!

I made this one for a housewarming gift for my friend… get it? “House warming”? And it’s a blanket?? HAHAHA

Ok, so maybe it’s not really that funny. But I’m the one that snuggled up with it on the couch while I was there, so when I got home I was stoked to whip off another one, EVEN FLUFFIER!!!

and then another one to match the “house warmer”!
