FO: Blanket for my mom
I started this before thanksgiving and finished it christmas eve (talk about time cruncher) My mom kept teasing me about not finishing her present til christmas eve night. I fooled her I finished at at 4 pm lol. I took a picture of it when I was done (sorry bad lighting)



I had to make my own pattern for this but I think it turned out great! Graph paper is amazing!
