Blanketing my stupidity

I figured out my sewing machine and finished my blanket. You would think I would be celebrating.

Instead, I am a little disappointed that it is not a rectangle - a trapezoid would be more acurate. But what really ruins this soft little blanket is the backwards "Anna" up and down the sides of the back of it. And no, I didn't think of that - the fact that the name would not be the same on both sides - until I was finished with the entire thing. Genius over here just thought that would be sooo cute.

Fortunately for me, the name Anna is a palindrome - a word or phrase that is the same backwards or forwards - and the Ns can sort of go either way (at least I am telling myself that).

Should I still give it to my neighbor?

Megs- very cute. I would give it for sure. Who thinks about the backside until it is done, i don't. Nice sewing skills.

What luck that her name is a palindrome. Good job, you! I say it's just brilliant planning on YOUR part.

You should totally give it to her. It is so sentimental that you made it with your own cute hands and the story of the embroidery will be something funny (or to curse) whenever you see it!I think it is darling.
