My Aunt recently broke her leg and I wanted to cheer her up by sending her a crocheted gift. Found this free afghan pattern on the Coats and Clark site and it worked up pretty quickly. 48 squares, 4 different colors, 12 of each color and voila...pretty flowers!

It took me a couple of weeks to finish with lots of breaks in between so even with my procrastination it graduated from UFO status to FO status in relatively good time. Any and all comments welcome. Thanks for looking.  Grin  All thumbnails are clickable so clicky clicky!  Wink

That is a really happy looking, well-made blankie!  I'm sure it will help her broken leg.

p.s.  Your puppy is adorable.

Very pretty!  It's times like this that I wish I had the patience to crochet more than just scarves.

It's so pretty! I love the colours you chose.

Thank you for the pattern link.

DaisyAlly...Thanks! Funny enough I am the Queen of Impatience but with the right motivation I kept going. Picturing my Aunt in pain and in serious need of a pick-me-up did it for me.

ZellaBella ...You're so kind. Thanks for the well wishes for my Aunt.

DreamerOnCloud9...Thank you and you're welcome. Hope you enjoy making it as much as I did. Your kitty made me squeal with joy...too much cuteness!
