Afghan Complete

Well it seems I took a longer break than I had intended.  From Christmas to the New Year I didn't crochet a thing.  It was only a couple of days ago that I decided to pick up my hook again and try to finish this afghan that I started back in November.   This was supposed to be my Christmas afghan but I didn't finish it in time.  I think I'll leave it out the rest of the winter season so I can have a chance to enjoy it a bit.
 It was already pieced together. It just needed the border.
I chose red for the edging because I wanted something colorful and cheery.  This is after all my Christmas afghan. I like the added boost of color.  
I like the way it looks on my porch swing with the sun hitting it.  There's just something about an afghan that makes a place feel homey and inviting.   Even out on the front porch it seems to be calling me to sit and curl up with it.  
This was an enjoyable project.  I liked the whole process of making all the blocks, piecing them together and finishing it off with a pretty edge. Crocheting is therapeutic in a way.  However, I also know, that you will understand me when I say I'm glad it's finished.  Whew!  Onto the next project.

I hope everyone is doing well and I can't wait to do my rounds so I can catch up with all of you and see all the lovely treasures you all are busy creating.

  4. Gracias Foxxy ♥ y que decir de esta belleza es un largo trabajo tejer una manta, pero cuando uno lo termina se pasa mucho tiempo en disfrutarlo, vale la pena hay mucho tiempo volcado en estos trabajos como digo siempre " se llevan muchos pensamientos" y da mucho gusto ver que lo disfrutes besitos.
