QUICK UPDATE ON GIANT GRANNY SQUARE C.A.L.

Making this Giant Granny Square has been a lot of fun. And, hey, it keeps me busy and off the streets so what's not to like?! lol.

To share my progress with you, I've u/l a few photos. Notice in the first two, my little "helper" snuggeled into the yarn -- I left my seat for a few minutes and when I came back I saw her. Couldn't resist taking Missy's picture!

[When Missy saw me with the camera, she ducked her head...
she seems to be saying, "... you can't see me!"]

This afghan is BIG! It covers the whole top of my Queen size bed. I plan on crocheting about 3 more rows to balance out some color and lights n darks, then will put the edging on. The edging will be white. I'm trying to think up a simple edging, but so far have not decided. I hope you like the pictures. If nothing else, this blankie is colorful! lol


Now it's time to get back to sewing. I have a few placemats calling my name saying, "come finish my quilting!" And then there are a few Siggies to make.  Sewing, Quilting and Quilting Friends bring a lot of happiness into my life. I'm so grateful we share this craft with each other!

Thank you for stopping by to visit. I hope you will come back again... until then, may you have loads of time to quilt, sew and stitch!

Hugs,

Hi Cyn It is just gorgeous. I'm still working on mine, but I think the end is in sight because it's so heavy I can hardly lift it. You've given me a good idea to see how it looks on the bed. Great job!

Missy knows a great afghan when she sees (feels, snuggles, etc.) one!

Hi Cyn,
you really went fast on this crochet granny, and I like the colours you used. It was a good decision to add some more bright colours.
