I finished Tamela's blanket Monday evening, October 6 - just in time to surprise her with it when we had lunch that Thursday! She loves it! She wanted it to be large enough to cuddle up on the couch with - and it is definitely that! She picked the pattern out of one of the many crochet blanket pattern books I have.

One of the 4-square blocks I had made for the blanket was light pink and it just didn't fit with the other blocks. So, instead of unraveling all that work, I bought an 18-inch x 18-inch pillow at Michaels, made another 4-square block using Burgundy and crocheted the 2 blocks around the pillow in Burgundy - the same color as the last border row. I'll give the pillow to her when we have dinner on November 5.

I was very pleased to note that Tamela enjoyed the Bowtie Afghan. A pattern that I created out of scrap yarns.
I enjoyed making several afghan patterns and sold the patterns to Annies Attic.
The Bowtie Afghan was my first -- I had a bowtie quilt when I was a child.
One of my favorites was the Storm at Sea Afghan.
I stumbled across your website by putting my name in search.
Your website is fantastic. Thank you, Lorain

Hi, Lorain! Thanks for commenting! I've stumbled across a few interesting websites too when doing a search on my name - I'm surprised at how many people have the same name!
