The Garden Patch Granny Afghan: Glad to Be Back at It

This is how my afghan project looked for the last two, maybe three months.
Nothing got done and it sat in the corner of my bedroom in this basket. The reason: I got distracted, in a good way, by other smaller projects - a tote bag, a witch, and some hearts. And then there was Christmas.

But within the last week or so, I have gotten back at it. All the crocheting of squares is done. I have seven rectangles sewn together, and two rectangles are blocked and waiting to be seamed.

There is still a lot of blocking and seaming to do, which is not my favorite at all, but the end is in site.

I have also been thinking about what type of edging to put on this blanket. The pattern calls for just two rounds of single crochet, but I don't think that will be substantial enough.  Hmm....something to think about as I sew squares together.

It feels good to be working on this project again. I am feeling quite determined to get it done, to resist the lure of starting something new, to finish up this colorful masterpiece and lay it across my sofa. I am glad to be back at it.
