got a free afternoon?

I did since Adelaide invited Ambrose to play at their house while Asher had his nap. Thanks Echo! I used the quiet time to clean my house... just kidding! I made a picnic blanket!




And it rolls up all pretty when you're done:

I saw one like it in this book a year or so ago:
and have wanted to make one ever since.
I just used a vintage sheet and blanket I bought long ago as well:

I'm a little bit in love with it. What a breezy project. Let's go picnic!

Stephanie you are making so many things! Craft-o-mania! You are inspiring me. I need to make something now!

look at you go!

I would love to make one of those. I suppose it would have dual purposes as a beach blanket too.

I was just noticing your recent reads too... I read The Glass Castle a few years ago and LOVED it.

stephanie, i looked through it at a store one day and saw those! it killed me! but i guess that's what they did before plastic was invented.
