The blanket stitch is one I've wanted to use, but was kind of intimidated by. I found a great tutorial and decided to give it a try. Now I'm hooked! I made these two cuties yesterday, and can't wait to start something else.
I've made a promise to myself that the next thing I make can't be another gnome. I've been on quite a gnome kick, so I think some variety is in need. Decisions, decisions.
