Howdy, everyone! 

This post is about 2 weeks overdue, but... I have some very, very, {very!!!} exciting news!
After two years of waiting to finish this, I present to you...

The Spring Flower Granny Blanket!

Making the last stitch

The last snip...

And, done!

The edging is from Edie Eckman's Around the Corner Crochet Borders ~ border #3
It's just so hard to believe that it's really, truly, finally done! I'm so happy with the way it turned out!

Happy Hooking!

Thrift Store Treasures

Finding yarn-crafted items at thrift stores it my favourite part of thrift store shopping. I love finding a knit or crochet item and imagining the stories behind it of who made it and why and who for. Anyways, here are some pictures of a lovely shawl I found in January.

I found this lovely knitted blanket about 2 weeks ago, and a soon as a saw it, I knew I couldn't leave it there. I just love the crochet ruffle in the middle made with sparkly yarn! Can you imagine all of the time put in to making this?

Happy Hooking!
