I've started a new Travellers Blanket!
Today I shopped for flannelette, found some amazing, very old and stained lawn that belonged to my Mother-in-law and then played with my dye pot!
I really do love the blanket I've already started but it is a bit too heavy to pack in my cabin luggage to take to the US! I needed something a wee bit lighter! Something I can stitch on the 16 hour flight from Sydney to Fort Worth - even if I can only do, maybe, an hour of stitiching on the plane - that is a bonus!
This photo isn't the best - a bit too over the top yellow! I just put both on the scales - blue blanket - 800g Yellow blanket - 400g!
I can tone down the yellow with bits and pieces I pick up on my trip! Now there is a challenge to me! Can I find squares (circles) on my travels to add to my Travellers Blanket that are donated? I might see if I can run with that! I might start with my friends at home and see where I go from there! That would make this one a true Travellers Blanket!
