Every time I looked at this lovely blanket, I thought about the embellishing. So I bought a pom maker and once I got the hang of it - and the poms were similar, I added them to the blanket.
The tassels were easier (for me) to make and add. I consider it DONE. What a fun pattern. https://marlybird.com/category/cal-kal/

Received question, in 'comments', previous post about where to find the KAL pattern(s) , clues 3-4-5 from Happy Needles. Tho, I don't have an email address, so am responding here.
Links to the clues

The pattern also calls for tassels, poms, and fringe ... which I am on the fence to add because of the cats in our home. My guess is that they would play/chew on the embellished additions.

Bernat Blanket KAL --- Finished thru Clue #3. This is a 6-week KAL.
I had such a good time at the last zentangle class. We learned many new fragments and tangles. With the new tangles we learned, will fill in a finger labrinth tile (6x6").

Started another kit, Montana Mitts -- Wool and the Gang. Knitting done on one, starting the 2nd one soon.
Matese bag - which needs to be sewn together!!! I'm undecided about making a lining for the bag. I really liked the pattern, the Berroco yarn, espresso is now discontinued : ( I did manage to find some espresso in green colors. Hope to knit a 2nd bag in this pattern soon.
While visiting Montana in 2017, my sister gave me some fibers. We were at 2nd hand store & I found knitting needles -- this trim/edge pattern was on line. interweave.com/article/needlework/weldons-mystery-project-knitted-lace-edging/
So, I knitted the edge in 2017 -- and the pattern and knitting became separated! "
A few days ago, I found the knitted trim, still on the knitting needles. Bound off and not sure where I'll put this knitted piece.
Here are a few of the rectangles I've knitted. They will be donated to Warm Up America -- once I knit up the rest of the acrylic yarn I own.
September is National Sewing month .... The above photo part of a gift for DF. The origami bag is useful for any kind of project! And the ort container is really fun to make. I think I have sewn up 4 of them (to be given away). I like to add yo-yo's ; however , buttons look pretty good on the containers, too.
Do you have left over fabric --- try a pattern .... link HERE.
Multiple dischcloths!!! Probably too many to post.
Aside from fiber arts & sewing ..... I've been enjoyed zentangle classes - and on-line videos.
And, coloring - I enjoy the pages from Johanna Basford. Her illustrations are great fun for for me to fill in with color --- I prefer coloring pencils.
