The Afghan Queen

(Photo used with permission)
We have an afghan queen in our family...she is awesome!  She taught me my first few crochet stitches in the beginning (a very patient teacher too).

I just had to share her latest blanket, it is so pretty.  She was kind enough to share these pictures with us...

I think it is rather like functional art...it could totally be hung on a wall, but I know she would want it to be used and loved.  There are so many wonderful techniques and stitches, every time I look at it I see something else!

I especially love those crocodile stitch flowers and the textured circles...so amazing, all hail the afghan queen!

    1. Jennifer is very sweet to showcase my Christmas gift to my daughter on her blog ! I am newly retired and started this in September when gardening weather left us. I had a lot of fun putting it all together. My daughter, Jessi, chose the colors and my husband had input on the placement of motifs. I had never done motifs before so I learned a lot while doing this. It was a labor of love. It has been wonderful to see Jen's talent explode on this blog- and through numerous much loved Chrismas presents of her own design.
