I had hoped that this afghan would take me less than the 5 months that it took me to complete Babette, but it's been 5 months. But it is finished!
I am going to try to get better pictures. But I'm just so excited to show it off.
I decided to bring the yellow and white from the flowers out into the border. I tweaked it slightly from the pattern so it was a little more petal-like. I still think this would be amazing in a solid background color (like the green, especially). Maybe one day, but not anytime soon. It's time to move on.
I am going to make four more squares, one of each color, and make a little sampler of it. I've decided I might do this will all my afghans from now on... make a little sample version to frame. I think it would be a neat decoration and a good way for me to have a reminder of the afghans I give away.
And, of course, Zoe has decided she can't live without it, so it looks like the SGW is back to being my boss's gift again. I have neglected that for a few weeks, so I need to get back on it. Can we beat 5 months on this one? It is possible... it's only been a little over 2 months since I started it and I've made good progress. I have a bunch of other projects to work on at the same time, though, so we will just have to see.
