Sometimes simple can be elegant. My latest blanket is for a lovely lady in New York who will be giving this as a gift to her friend (what a nice friend!) She asked for an all white blanket with flowers. I used the rose pattern, but added one more round of petals and sewed them onto an 8" simple granny square.

These squares will be for the middle of the blanket. Then I'll have a border of several rounds (haven't figured how many yet) of 3dc shell pattern and another border of roses. I'm excited to see how it looks when it all comes together. I love the all white though.

This is the schematic I drew up as a guide:

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Rose granny rectangle afghan completed

I finished up my afghan this morning when I sewed the little rose to one corner. It's a nice feeling to put the last piece in place. I guess that's why I also like to do jigsaw puzzles so much! I wasn't sure how I wanted to edge it, so I opted for a single crochet in a dark rose and scalloped edge in the dusty rose.

Happy Leap Year Day!

Feeling nostalgic

These  past two projects have been so fresh and vibrant, but I'm finding myself in an antique-y mood, so I started working on a new blanket with that in mind. I'm using lots of rose colored yarns, some of the lighter variety and some dark - dusty rose, antique rose, blush, rose, dark rose, etc. I think I will add some roses to it, but this is where I'm at so far...

As I worked up this blanket, I thought about my great Aunt Tillie, whom my daughter and (partially) my shop is named after. She died when she was only a little girl, but I always loved this little pin my mother had with a picture of her on it. Sadly, I believe it's the only photograph we have of her. My mother gave me the pin after my Tillie was born.
