Got Mom's blanket done...

It's not quite the double size she wanted, but it will work quite well for keeping her warm in her rocker.

I started with the yellow and did a tipsy shell - that's the last picture to show you the stitch.

Then I added some tweed as a border to make it a bit longer.

It's in a priority mail box and going out to her tomorrow.

My dear husband told me to tell her if it's too short, to pull on it and it will get longer! Isn't he sweet?

It reminds me of a sunflower. What do you think?

It's lovely! The yellow gives it a 'light' feeling, but the darker border really anchors it and gives it substance. It's really beautiful - Mom's a lucky lady!!
