When Things Get Crafty

Of course it is in the chaos of living like hobos that I drool over tutorials for things like a Cut Chenille Blanket. Doesn't it just sound heavenly? It looks just as good, too.

I start to daydream about fabrics, swatches, prints, colors, textures... mentally redecorating the kids' rooms... thinking about making each child a very special quilt of their very own... 

AND THEN. Well, then I remember that I can't sew. I don't even own a sewing machine. I have never heard of a chenille cutter. Not to mention the fact that I do not have the kind of time I'm imagining would be required to sew three lines, cut in the middle of them... and so on and so forth. I'm pretty sure I would buy lovely, probably pricey fabric, and fold it away... to gather dust on a back shelf. There is no way I could ever finish a project like that. No matter how gorgeous the pictures may be. WHY CAN'T I BE MORE CRAFTY?! WHY?!
