If their is no game intended in this thread, was there anyone else reading the thread who thought this could be a game? :lol:


It could indeed be a game, but it will be a game for the future! :lol: The herd is mainly to produce lots of harli/tri pelts to make a blanket that is just tri/harli. Oooooo I know it is counting pelts before they are born but can you imagine the blanket?

That is one beautiful throw! I'll bet the wool adds extra warmth, too.

Aw, thank you! The wool does make it extra warm but it also pads the back so I don't feel the stitching lines which is what I wanted.

It is too small though - 30 inch by 36 inch - so I am now working on patchwork squares - about 6 by 6 - that will each be backed and stuffed, like little flat pillows. They will be stitched on as a border which will give me extra size and, if I need, I can run two rows which will give a generous lap throw instead of the stingy one it is now.

And they will frame the central panel which should look nice as well.

I love doing things like this but waiting on more wool is making me mental, I ordered samples almost two weeks ago!
