"Well begun is half done"

I have started construction on my Etsy shop. It is also called "TheCraftiestSMurf". Now I just need to take better photos of my blankets to upload there. 

I finished 8 more blankets over the past 12 days. Here they are:

(You can see why I need better photos)
I've used up most of the sides that I premade on these blankets so now I get to match fabrics again. That's my favorite part!

“It’s the job that’s never started as takes longest to finish, as my old gaffer used to say"

This is my first blog post, ever.
 Believe me, I am as surprised as you are.
My intention is to primarily use this blog for posting about blankets that I have made. Each is a one of a kind creation. I use various fabrics (cotton, sunggle flannel, courderoy, ultra soft, etc.). I mix and match patterns but try to keep to a color scheme. I'll most likely be starting an Etsy shop in the near future in case anyone would like to purchase a blanket. I will post here when it is up and running. In the mean time, if anyone would like to place a special order, that can be arranged. But for now I am not making blankets bigger than twin size. Most of mine are "crib size", which means they will fit a toddler bed (they also work great as lap blankets).
So, while I expect to use this more for showing off my blankets, I'll probably post random snippets of life or rants or whatever I feel like that day becauses it's MY blog! Sorry, got a little excited.
I have been thinking about doing this for a while and finally got up the gumption to do it. Procrastination at it's finest. Well, here goes...........
