I had some time on my hands while watching TV in the evenings, and made a crochet baby blanket in less than a week!
I had been wanting to try out the corner-to-corner(c2c) crochet pattern. The blanket measures about 38" x 38". I ran out of yellow yarn and did not feel like running out to get more, so I used white yarn instead for the edging. I'm still debating if I should add a little embellishment in a corner...for example a few small crochet daisies or something.
The crochet edging is a simple one I just came up with. The first row is done in single crochet all around. The second and last row was 3 single crochets, and then chain 3 and single crochet in the same stitch in between 3 half double crochets.
This summer I plan on making baby blankets to donate to Warm Up America! I'm currently working on another one in blue using a pattern called Tiramisu.
She loves flowers and all kinds of gardening. By the way, I get that from her.
Well this little orchid flower broke off her plant and landed on my kitchen counter. A little gift to myself I guess; and I'm so surprised it lasted so long! It died the day after Memorial Day. I would change the water on a daily basis, and it looked so fresh like a daisy...well in this case as an orchid!
I'm so glad that you came to visit!! DH and I have been married for 28 years. Hubby and I are now retired and enjoying life. We winter in Sun City, AZ, & spend summers in Golden Valley, MN.
