But that is OK, because I accomplished things! I cleaned (much needed) I tried to get cats to like each other (failed) I did computer work (ugh) and I started and finished a whole project. (hooray!) Yes, inspired by one of my students I went to work on this lap duvet tutorial found over on Purl Bee. Although, I think of a duvet really as a slipcover, so I'm going to consider it more of an eiderdown. Which is more fun to say, anyway.
So, this eiderdown was made for my nephew. I've been meaning to make him a proper quilt, but of course never have. I love this blanket, it's fluffy and soft and a really good size for full-body kids, or adult laps. I used this Amy Butler Chinese Lanterns fabric that I bought at Harper's. You may be able to find it at our store soon though, as E promptly fell in love with it. Especially when I paired it with this Lotta Jansdotter Ruta fabric.

|Now that is a cushy blanket.|
