My Afghan is DONE!!

I am so freaking excited that I finished this last night!!! I attached the last row of squares and added the border and she is now resting comfortably on my bed. I will say that I hoped it was going to be a bit bigger, I'm horrible at measurements and things like that. It's the perfect size for a twin bed but gets the job done on my full size. This baby was a labor of love and I am so proud of her!







You can check out the progress of this afghan throughtout a bunch of different posts I did since I started her back in January.

I am so proud of myself that even though it took this long I really stuck with it. I definitely don't want to make anymore granny squares for quite a while. Between that craftster swap, the blogger blanket project and this afghan, I am all grannied out! Although...I do really want some cute granny throw pillows LOL I'll wait on that for a while though. I am now onto starting all the Christmas presents I am going to make this year. Lots of hats and scarves I think.

I also have a ton of stuff to share with you guys...so much has happened in my life over the last month. Like giant stuff!
My mom moved to Arizona.
I quit my job and got a new one (I start Sunday!) that is COMPLETELY different.
I have a new life plan and career goal that I am really looking forward to which also means I am going back to school in January.
Anyway...that is all going to be a post of it's own!

Thanks so much for popping by and checking out my loverly new afghan, have a wonderful weekend friends!

Love it! My first granny afghan was about 1/4 the size of that for a baby blanket and it was hard just to get through all those grannies! I think I'm ready to tackle something bigger though! Loving the way your colors look together. :)

Thank you so much ladies!! I'm still so in love with it and since it's getting cold here, I've been able to use it every night on my bed!

What a pretty afghan! I so wish I knew how to crochet, I tried to learn once when I was a lot younger but it was just a major disaster!

Thank you Vanessa! And you too Lauren!! You should try it again, the Happy Hooker book and YouTube videos helped me learn sooo much!!
