I'm making a granny square blanket.
This is my inspiration:
It's a lapghan I bought, before I knew how to crochet. It was made, for charity, by a very old lady named Grace, and I love the cheerful daisies she's included, as well as the way she's unified the look of the blanket by using white for the flowers and white for the joins. I just wish it was bigger so I could nap under it, but now I've taught myself to crochet I'm ready to stitch one of my own.
After digging around in my stash I've come up with a colour combination that will go with the colours in my bedroom:
...and last night I crocheted my first square:
It's lacier than the original but I'm happy with it, and really looking forward to making some more.
