This is no game. This is no fun. Your life is flame. Your time is come.

I recently started making blankets for the local chapter of Project Linus in my area. The basic design I use is very simple, solid color and print right sides together, pin to batting, flip, and double edge. As far as technical skills, making these blankets is about as easy as it gets. And really cute to boot. The biggest problem I am having is cutting the batting. The rolls I get are usually 10 ft by 10 ft, while the blankets are usually around 4 ft by 5 ft, and I am finding it really difficult to cut the batting simply because I do not have enough room to roll it out and pin down the fabric. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Also, one of the little old ladies from Project Linus taught me to crochet a couple of days ago, and I am loving it! So far I haven't done anything more complicated than a single crochet, although I have taught myself to switch yarn colors and to do a front stitch. I had one disastrous attempt before I got the hang of things and am about 1/3 of the way through my first scarf. This is a really huge achievement for me because I usually have the hand co-ordination of a drunk toddler. So far I have been doing really good.

Since I live in Florida and have no need for winter clothes, does anybody know of any resources or patterns for cute crochet things that you don't wear?

We're required to take a lingerie class at my school. I hate lingerie, but I'm pretty pleased with my chemise.

I'm not that much into lingerie either, but this looks like it came out really well.

Was that fabric as much of a bitch to sew as it looks like it was?
