A woolen blanket and a surprise visit July 16, 2008

July 3rd marks my dear father’s birthday. This year I surprised him by sneaking back to NZ for his birthday. It was amazing seeing the looks on my parents faces when they saw me. I’ll never forget it, and I think that they wont ever forget it either.

Its cold in New Zealand in winter, so I made dad this lap blanket to keep him warm at night while he watches television or reads.

The fabric is a beautiful pure wool knit, with a rustic feel to it. Just the thing for Dad. I cut the piece to the right size and sewed up the sides to hem the blanket. The blue blanket stithcing I did by hand with a piece of turquioise tapestry wool. The blanket stitching was painfully slow to do. I measured with a ruler with every stitch, but I’m glad that I did because it did turn out looking very neat.

Happy birthday Dad, this little Llama love you very much.
