    This is really pretty! Beautifully done. Would make a beautiful foundation for an afghan too….. 😉

    Color is so important to me in how a project turns out.Some beautiful patterns do not have as much appeal as others and it is all because of color.This is just my take on the subject.When I am admiring some work of others i think now why did I not think of those colors?

    I am going to make this one for Christmas presents that I will give to the neighbors and friends at work. I also send something like this to family instead of a Christmas card
