F.........ebruary Experiment: Day 6

This is the time of year to cuddle up in something warm and dream of summer! One of my favorite afghans allows me to do both. Perhaps my favorite afghan ever is of an afghan called "Grandma's Flower Garden", based on the quilt patterns of the same name. This pattern is particularly dear to me, because my own grandmother had several of these delightful quilts. The "flowers" are actually crocheted motifs...hundreds of them in greens, pinks, orchids and blues which are assembled to form the "garden".

Experiment update: I'm continuing to relist and renew as well as edit the shop. Today was additionally pleasant as I took the time to read and comment on several blogs. I learn so much from other bloggers! And now, it's time to get ready to head downtown for an evening with the local Symphony Orchestra. Tonight they're featuring Brahms, which is always a treat!

That afghan is beautiful! My grandma used to make afghans so they always remind me of her so the name is fitting.

what a beautiful afghan! It looks like a washtowel, I can't make out the size. Great colors. Hope you enjoyed the symphony. Our local symphony closed for a few years - but we got it back, lucky for me (and lots of others). {:-D

I love crocheted afghan blankets, and that one is beautiful, and warm I'm sure! Living in the northeast I definitely need a few blankets! lol
