My sweet kitty turned 5 yesterday! We totally celebrated his birthday, because we are slowly turning into the crazy cat people of the neighborhood, and it was fun! Anyway, for his birthday I made him a new blanket. He absolutely loves blankets, all kinds of blankets, but really the flannel ones are his favorites.
It was a family effort to make this for him. Dustin picked out the fabric and I did the sewing. Then Sophie kept it warm for him (or in other words, kicked him off of it so she could lay on it. Looks like I need to make a second one).
I figured Dimitri wouldn't care if it had a crochet edging or a decorative stitch so I went with the fastest one. I tried out a few new stitches (and even one that I might try for quilting next time) and finally settled on this one.
He really likes it and I think Sophie is jealous. I really think I will be making a second one of these in the near future for her.
PS- Double yay to the Jazz for beating the Lakers last night! Even with all the injured players, they still were able to win! What a game!
