Mushrooms From Sewhooked.com

Last week after I showed Jennifer Ofenstein’s embroidery post at sewhooked.com to my husband, he requested that I make one for our home.  So I asked for Jennifer’s permission and by the afternoon, she had a pattern ready for me to use.  She is just that nice!

I changed the pattern a little bit, in the place of the third mushroom, I added couple of round rocks.

Kaushik wanted one with old school sepia tone and I wanted one with color.  So I made two versions (did I say I love mushrooms).

He gave me the idea and I went with it.  My version of bioluminescence mushrooms (did I also mention that I love reading fantasy and science fiction stories) –

Fall Leaves Blanket

Here is the finished blanket.  I used blanket stitch with black thread to join the two layers.  I also added a couple of photos with Charlie wallowing on it.

Better yet, just found this one of him checking it out:

I had to bribe him with it to get my laundry out:

And finally blissfully wallowing on it –

Taffy’s Personal Blankets

Taffy usually cuddles with me majority of the day, but sometimes he loves to snuggle at his favorite spots on a blanket.  The other kitties are not nearly as fond of specific spots or blankets like he is.  So I made him two personal blankets.  One with his first name, Tuffleberry and the other with his last name, Treestone.

He sleeps on my pillow at night, but sometimes he needs to stretch out a bit more considering his huge size.
