My creative juices have returned

So after wondering if my creative juices were ever going to return again they have come back to me with abundance, I have become one of those people that now sleep with a notepad and pen on their nightstand because I am dreaming of things to make.
Here's my latest and it's all 100% my design,I think I may have come up with the perfect picnic blanket, the one pictured is small because I wanted to see how it would turn out and I have to say I'm pretty darned pleased with the finished product.
The backside is made of the same material as light raincoats, making it waterproof, so perfect to sit down on grass that is damp, in each corner is a pocket to insert a weight or flat rock, this holds the blanket down even on a windy day, it works, it was windy here today and the blanket stayed flat, there's batting between the gingham and nylon making it a little more comfy and I've quilted it to add a little more dimension, add to that some handpainted ants who in this instance just happened to march into the shape of an S and you have a mat fit for, well, a picnic.
Here are a few pics,click on the picture and you will view it in all its glory. I will be listing them in my store and am taking orders for them now.

too cute!! If you want to add links to your shop (or anything else) when you're writing a post, do it the same way you add the photos. Select the text you'd like to be linkable, click the little 'chain' icon in your blogger editer, and then copy/paste the URL of the site you want it to link to and hit OK! Let me know if you have any more q's, sorry we were out of town and I didn't get a chance to reply to you before we left ((smooches))
