Just wanted to show a few other afghans I made many moons ago, can't even tell you how many afghans I have made and given away as gifts for weddings and showers.
Just haven't done any for quite a few years now !

Don't forget you can make stuffed animals as well for baby gifts ! Made these for my girls when they were little ~ don't have directions now but if you go to Red Heart free crochet patterns then put in search stuffed animals you can download the directions.

    Oh Carol it is just dreamy ! I love it, I have always loved the feel and look of crocheted blankets. I have one of my grandmothers that I treasure. How long did this take you, it really is gorgeous, what a labor of love !
