Progress


My doll-sized afghan thrift store find is slowly, but surely, becoming human-sized. Unfortunately I gave up on finding a match for the aqua- I looked everywhere I could think of looking and nothing even comes close. I couldn't even find a matching cream or brown! Therefore, I will have to finish the afghan with nothing but contrasting colors. I think it looks pretty good so far, and I like that it's big enough to cover me while working on it- cozy!

  19. Hi, I'm a stranger to your blog and I have an odd question totally unrelated to this post. I found an old post of yours through a Google search for the scented gingerbread Christmas ornaments from Avon. My mom has had that set since my childhood and every year I love to visit her house and smell them! Anyway, I'm looking for a pair for myself...and as gifts for my siblings if I'm super lucky and happen to find more than one set...and I was hoping you could help me out! Please e-mail me at lovethesefries@yahoo.com if you have any idea where to look. Thanks so much! Eliza

  20. Love the afghan! Your color choices are perfect. I think if you were able to match the aqua, it might not look as vintage as is does. Now it looks like something my grandmother would have made.
