"I've finished my 1st flower blanket".

Hello everyone,  I joined this blog ages ago and as yet have not posted anything finished.  I know it 's not a quilt but it's a finish! Late last year I made this crocheted African flower blanket.  I have never really got into crochet  before but now I'm hooked!  I really love it !.   I have finally finished it... It took me about a year to finish it.  I so enjoyed it...might even do another one someday!
I really must try and finish some stuff...a lot of things started but this is number one!  sue~nz

oh Wow, I too love crochet or hooking as my girls call it...One DD even told her teacher I was a hooker at show and tell.... hence her newly crocheted hat...the teacher nearly wet herself with laughter...then I had to make 3 teachers a hat..LOL
well done, keep on finishing...it looks fabulous

Cute cute cute! Congrats on your finish. I don't crochet yet. But I love looking at this afigan. It looks like a pattern I could take with me while I am waiting on my son to finish one of his appointments. It seems to lay so nice and flat. Great job!

It's beautiful! I love crocheting, but I don't like fiddling with all the little yarn ends, or sewing pieces together, so I stick with different designs. I really admire your patience in putting this together. It's a huge finish!!

Looks wonderful! I love to crochet and I am usually very good at making all the motifs. When it comes time to sew them all together the afghan usually gets squished in a bag and forgotten lol.

Girl that is a quilt! Just done differently to us 'sewers'. I have made a few crotched quilts in my day too.
Yours is gorgeous. Well done.
