Crochet blanket finish

I finished a striped baby blanket yesterday. It's for one of my daughter's friends whose baby is due in a couple of weeks. The baby's nursery has a Woodland theme so I chose two shades of green and a soft grey for the yarn. I found an excellent tutorial on YouTube by Bella Coco for a pretty shell edging and I am very pleased with the result. I shall use this pattern again for edging blankets.

I am also making a quilt for the baby - it's a boy apparently - which is now sandwiched ready for hand quilting. Again, in keeping with the Woodland theme.

The bay window you see in the background of my photo is full of cards and flowers for my recent birthday. I am very lucky to have such thoughtful friends and family. 😊


  1. Crochet blanket looks great. Lovely to receive so many beautiful Birthday cards...

  2. I haven't crocheted an afghan in a long time. What a wonderful gift.

    And happy belated birthday!
