|my blanket stitch heart|
i have a number of gorgeous scarves that i have been given as presents (lucky aye! my sister and mum know i have a soft spot for them) so i didn't feel particularly keen on attempting one ... i mean lets face it, this is my first venture into blanket stitching so the stitches are likely to be uneven and well ... plain wonky! i'm ok with that and i knew someone else who would be to .... barbie of course! pollyanna's barbie i am absolutely sure could do with a new bed cover and i felt that was the perfect place for my first blanket stitching venture to end up :) luckily pollyanna, my sweet daughter, agreed.
