Afghan Debut!

 
Hello dear friends!
I did not intend to take a long blog
break, but that's what happened!
 
I feel like I've been hibernating this winter,
but I look forward to sharing some of
the things I've been up to again!
 
 
I always get a bit overwhelmed with the
Christmas holidays and all the gifts I'm
making.

 
I was looking forward to showing you this
afghan that I made Lindsey for Christmas,
even if it is almost March!
 
 
It was a joy to make, although time consuming
since it's rows are all single crochet.
The color palet was yummy and the border
color is her favorite!

 
I had the idea as I was working on it, that
the rows needed to be broke up with some
decoration.  I made up the flowers as
I went along.

 
I also didn't know what kind of border to
put on until I got to it.  I found this pattern
for the ruffled border here and I think it
accented it perfectly!

 
"And let the beauty of the Lord our
God be upon us,
And establish the work of our
hands for us; 
Yes, establish the work of our hands."
- Psalm 90:17
 
Have a great day!
Love, Twyla

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

It's absolutely beautiful but oh my. Single crochet is my least favorite. You would think it would be simple and easy for for some reason, I have to think with doing a single crochet, whereas the double crochet seems just right. :) Best wishes, Tammy
