It is amazing how procrastination finds its way into all parts of my life. Not only do I procrastinate with my school work, but also with my household plans. I put off doing dishes (like this very moment) and I tell myself I will finish my project later. Recently I have been working on an afghan. I could have been done before the wedding but I decided to push it off until now.
I have actually made this afghan once before and gave it as a gift. When I started it, I thought “This is so easy! I already know what I am doing. Should go by fast!” Several months have passed. So much for getting it done right away. I am so excited to be able to use it!
As a child I loved cuddling up in the blanket that was always draped over the back of the couch. I don’t remember any of them having much significance to me. Now Nathan and I have a significant blanket: our first family afghan. Neither of us owned it before our marriage and it never belonged to someone else. Best part is that I made it! What could be better?
If you would like to make your own I found the pattern on Lion Brand.
