This week has pretty much been working with a few crafts sprinkled in between. I was able to do crafty things and hang out with my friends Lauren and Chanel. Those awesome projects are coming soon to the blog nearest you! (aka Elemental Carbon). I also went to Bible Study on Tuesday, Women's Bible Study Wednesday morning, and a RealLife get together playing sand volleyball on Thursday.
I also picked up my guitar again because it had been way way too long. I learned to play the song Safe & Sound by Taylor Swift because I think the intro is really fun. I also worked a little bit on Study No. 7 in Am by Matteo Carcassi which I had learned previous to my guitar hiatus (due to college busy-ness).
When I was younger, and even now, it seemed like every single person and their brother had one of those no-sew fleece blankets where you tied the edges, but I never got or made one. I was at Hobby Lobby with my friend Lauren and saw this really cute black and white plaid fleece (and it was on sale!) and knew that this was the perfect opportunity to make up for the missing fleece blanket in my childhood.
Plus, I love blankets and I feel like you can never have too many.
At the same time, I was never overly fond of the tied edge look, but as much as I love sewing, I still jump at the chance of anything that is no-sew.
So instead of tying the edges, I crocheted them so that they look braided!
Want to know how? I'll show you!
