When I was a kid, my parents would borrow my grandparent’s RV and we would go camping in the Rocky Mountains. Many people don’t consider sleeping in an RV camping because you’re not really roughing it. I beg to differ. Camping mainly appears to be, at least to me, all about sleeping in uncomfortable conditions and calling it fun. I slept on a hard surface with lumps and covered up with any one of the many prickly wool blankets my grandparents kept in the camper. (This must be a grandparent thing, considering vacations at my other grandparents’ house and their scratchy blankets.)
When I first saw Jonesi’s blanket mesh, I thought of my grandparents and those chilly nights in the camper. Itch-inducing as those blankets were, there was a sense of ‘home’ connected with them. Perhaps it was the fact they were fuzzy or maybe it was the feeling of ‘Iowa farm’ I got from them. This mesh gave me an opportunity to relive those days without all the irritated skin. Win-win!
The mesh is included in the .zip file with the recolors. The name of the mesh is “Jonesi_BedBlanket_mesh_fixed” and the date is July 2007. There are different versions of this mesh out there, as other creators have updated its properties, so you will want to compare name and dates with any mesh you already have for this blanket to make sure you have the latest one available.
You can find a single bed version of this blanket created by HugeLunatic at sims2artists.com. It pulls the textures from the double bed mesh, so these recolors will work with it, as well.
These recolors were originally uploaded to Seriously Amused Sims on August 23, 2010.
