It’s Almost Done… National Crochet Month & Sunburst Granny!

.

I decided to get busy on my Sunburst Granny Square Blanket ..  I’m still not sure of the size I want though, … I now have 45 squares complete and will need somewhere between 48-63 squares to make a nice size blanket!  I am tempted to stop at 48 so I can join them and put an edging on…   I only need 48 to make a twin topper,,, 63 for a queen… Hmmmm!  Well, I will have to decide tonight… I actually could have this beautiful blanket done this weekend if I do 48 squares!

I really have enjoyed making this blanket,,, and for once I am keeping it for myself…YAY!  Hopefully one of my children don’t want to steal it,,, I always give in!

This reminds me of my childhood bedroom colors… My Grandmother Beatrice Ryan Ramshaw painted my room purple for me when I was 8 years old… Loved it!  She made a crochet loopy rug in these colors for my floor… I wish I still had it… Maybe I should make a replica!

.

Don’t forget this is still National Crochet Month… Stretch yourself into learning how to crochet, reading patterns or new stitches!

Here is to finishing projects and National Crochet Month…
