A Mommy Blanket Finish

Its done....finally, I actually can't remember when I started this wee
Throw, it was definitely well before Christmas.....Ohhhhh
the shame!!!!!!!
I'm such a bad, bad crocheter (was gonna say hooker....but had a 
very quick change of mind )
But anyhoo it's done, its really done, I'm kind of giggling here
with a giddy, stupid, silly laugh cause I  thought I'd never finish it.
I got bored at times, lazy at times & just too darn busy at other times.
I've stitched in all the ends....which is a mini miracle because  (confession) 
I've done reveals before & just hid the ends.....not this time though


No cheating....no ends :)


Just real good ol fashioned finished blanket


I love the border, found the link for a pattern on this wonderful 


I'm packaging it up tomorrow & sending it to my Mom in 
Australia along with a lot of Butler's Irish chocolate for my sweet 
toothed Dad (it's def the best choc ever)


Hope she likes............

By the way I should say this more often...thank you so much 
for the lovely comments you leave, I get excited & thrilled by each one,
a real genuine encouragement....Bless you
Lots of Love Karen xxxxx
