I finally finished these baby blankets for my friend Heather's twins that she just adopted from Vietnam. The fabric is so cute, but my sewing job is pretty hideous. I've only hemmed pants once before, so I don't feel so bad about not being the best seamstress. I can't believe how long it took me!! My poor friend Emily who let me borrow her sewing machine not only had to deal with me calling her over every 5 minutes to fix a jammed machine, but she also helped me with my kids. I went over the 2nd time without my kids and she kindly (and patiently) showed me how to use her machine. I LOVED it! It was actually therapeutic (maybe it was just doing something without my kids). I'll have to look into getting one someday if I ever have room for it. THANK YOU EMILY!!
