I finished the pink saddle blanket today. I promise it's not that crooked in person.
I always forget how long these take to make. I have been working on this on and off for the last three days. Granted, a fair amount of that time was spent picking out mistakes, but still.... I could have made an English saddle in less time! There are a handful of hobbyists who sell custom cross stitch pads in the $10-$25 range. I don't how they can do that. Obviously they must stitch a lot faster than I do. Or something.
I do like making my own blankets, but as far as sale tack goes--I think I'll stick to leather goods!
