Shucky ducky! Ain’t I lucky! I won a free prize!

I never play; henceforth, I never win. This time I decided to not be so shy and put my best bid in. And… It worked!

A wonderful craft blogger that I follow, Hannah’s Loop hosted her 100 Followers Giveaway Celebration in November. (If you do ANY kind of crafting, she is an artist to follow!) All I could think about were all the things me and Lil Miss could do with these bright colors and soft textures.

WINNING!! We are going to make blankets for her babydolls, Molly, Polly, Olly, and Golly!

Me, Lil Miss, Molly & Polly (Baby Alive Twins)I think I look tired in this picture. I probably was. I think this was when her mom was in labor with King Chubb. I’m always willing to take a picture with my great grand-doll children.πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

Anywho…Molly and Polly are her Baby Alive Baby Go Bye Bye twins. I can’t tell them apart so I don’t know which is which πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ. I think they could also use a hat or two. Their hair is always out of control. I tell Lil Miss that just because her kids have natural hair doesn’t mean she can’t take a wet brush to it.

WIN-WIN!!! Over break, we did finish her first quilting project! Yay us!!! Whoop whoop!

She received a Trolls Easy Make Your Own Fleece Quiltkit from her Nanny (aka Godmother). It was an easy age-appropriate introduction to making knot quilts. There were 20 precut fleece squares included. The material is 100% polyester. Enough come in the kit to make several small quilts or one large 59″ x 39″ quilted throw.

Look at those colors!!

We laid out our material and organized the block pattern of her choice. (After all, it’s her blanket)Tying the knot was a little difficult for her small hands. The age rating on the kit is 6+ and she is 6.5 years old. She was able to do the first part of the tie and then I would go behind her and complete the second loop over and pull through to achieve the knot! Team work makes the DreamWorks!!

Lil Miss selected and smoothed on her embellishments. (I would have picked a few of the small patches, but heeeyyyy it’s not my blankie or my business to interfere with her creative expression). The appliques came in a variety of sizes and shapes. They have adhesive on the back and stick firmly within seconds. I do not think they will be washer friendly, but if she really wants it to last we can quick stitch them down. In the end, the overall quality is good enough for what is needed for!

She was so excited about her finished product! It was an 1.5 hours well spent time! The new skill and memory will last FOREVER!!!

My heart's passion is teaching college students how to critically think in order to navigate a world with too many options. This platform is for my creative self. I have been writing stories since I could hold a pencil. My personal philosophies and beliefs have evolved into isms that I live by. I was also a photographer for many, many years. I mainly did portraits, but I do not enjoy it anymore. Now I love to color! All the "artwork" are my digital coloring book creations. Be true. Be authentic. Live your philosophies. I am Fuzz.

    1. You’d be surprised at how easy it is to make one from scratch. Time consuming yes, but the great part is any flaws can be redefined as an artistic inflection!


    1. I can’t knit (I don’t think. πŸ€”) And I can barely crotchet. I am much better at sewing, but my Granny taught me basic crotchet stitches when I was a kid. I really want to pass that art on. At least offer my grands a foundation to build off of. Even when our projects aren’t perfect, the kids walk away with such pride in what they did accomplish. That’s the point. πŸ’•πŸ¦‹
