Phase Blanket Stitching is complete.  This portion of the project brought to you by Season One of the CBS television series Numb3rs and the movie Underworld: Evolution.  I need to tidy my workroom a bit so I can mark the fabric to sew a guideline (I want to sew it, rather than just use chalk, because it's a big piece and I'm afraid it will rub off).

I determined that this project has nine steps:
  1. Research the design
  2. Draw the design and get approval from Himself
  3. Trace the design onto stabilizer
  4. Cut and sew the wool strip of fabric
  5. Blanket stitch the edges
  6. Mark and machine stitch a guide line on the wool strip (for lining up the stabilizer, on which there is also a guide line)
  7. Arrange the design on the wool strip
  8. Stitch the design and tear away the stabilizer
  9. Affix the wool strip to the cloak
At this point I don't know if I'll have time to fill in everything between now and Pennsic, but the blanket stitching took less time than I expected, so I'm hopeful.

On to the tidying interlude...
