finished crochet project
This is what I have been working on for a while now.
My Niece started the baby afghan and finished the middle, when it came to the ruffle she found it was beyond her level of crochet.
So she gave it to me to finish, Wow! I had to look at it as if I was crocheting a doiley, that ruffle seemed to take forever.
A little to much ruffle for me, but she thinks it's beautiful. It's a gift to her Daughter.
As for me, I'm glad it's done.

That's a beautiful afghan, it looks like it could become a family heirloom even. You're a wonderful aunt to do this for your niece, that will be part of the story that goes with it, how you saved the day. Makes you a hero!

OMG, this little blanket is DIVINE heavenliness! Superb! Delicate! I can't remember seeing a more beautiful baby blanket. It's a real treasure! I'd be so proud to gift this to anyone... I'd be busting at the seams.

Yeah, I know I'm gushing, but I just can't help it!
