Vessel of Madness...LOL

I am a bit late starting my Vessel of Madness for Theme-a-licious this March. I have been sewing and stitching for a school fete's craft stall instead. Well tonight is the time for ....................................the Vessel of Madness!!!

 I plunged my hand in and pulled out.....

...so it looks like I'm stitching on my Marjolein Bastin design again.  I'll plunge my hand in tomorrow night and pick another project to stitch.

Toddler Tom's grandmother, Mim (or Mimmy as he likes to call her) cross stitched him his own special blankie. Isn't this the cutest thing? I love it with the red gingham backing.  It is a preprinted design.  She chose all her own colours. If you knew my mum you would know what a stress that was. She did so well! Tom's favourite pictures on it are the raindrops which fall on the umbrella ("rain rain"). Who would have thought such a tiny detail would be the first picture he notices?

Thanks for sitting in my garden,

Love the vessel of Madness!

Your son's blanket is lovely, I can believe you about tiny details. When my brother was 4 we played I-Spy on a train journey. He said B and we spent ages trying to guess. It turned out to be Bottle, a tiny little detail in the background of an advert on the train wall, hardly visible to the naked eye!
My small boy can also spot a raisin at 20 paces. LOL.
