VINTAGE AFGHAN

It is DONE
And I Love this blanket.


The vintage blanket is from Cottage 1945,
and was the perfect winter project.
The colors made my heart skip beats!
I had a smile on my face every time I sat down to hook a row.


The border pattern is from 



A three row border with the finial row 
being a beautiful scallop design.
I love the RED
and using red as the "frame" on the blanket
just makes the afghan POP


The colors I would never have chosen on my own.
Teals, and 3 different pinks are just not me---
or so I thought.


These vintage colors are now so....
ME


My Vintage Afghan is being displayed at 
Go on over or call 
and start working on a vintage afghan for yourself!
Your heart will be leaping into Spring !
