This is the afghan I made for my friend, Marli.
I used an off-white cream color. It ended up being bigger than the afghan that's in the picture, but that was fine :-) She ended up loving it! Marli is a girly girl, so I wanted to give her something elegant that she could use now but still be able to use it in her own home one day.
Marli and I have been friends since we were 8 years old! We met at church. I really don't know when we went from aquaintances to best friends, but somehow it happened :-) We were both homeschooled and throughout the years we've done many homeschool activities together. We're still best friends and love hanging out together!
This is the afghan I made for my friend, Jordan:
The background color looks almost black in this picture, but it's really navy blue. Jordan was going away to college, so I wanted something that she could take with her, but she could still use later on. She isn't as much of a "girly girl" as I am, so I wanted something in colors that she would like and match her bedding, something that was feminine but not over-the-top girly, practical, and most importantly something that she would want to use :-)
Jordan and I have been friends since she was born (I'm a year older)! My dad grew up with her mom's family. Once my parents started dating, her mom and my mom have been great friends:-) Jordan and I are very different and yet very similar. We both love to read, "I Love Lucy," spend time together, talk, and just hang out :-) PS. This pattern came from a special edition of Crochet Today Magazine
This year, my brother, Rodge, is graduating from highschool! I can't believe it! About a year and a half ago he asked for a log cabing afghan for Christmas. The thing is, he asked about 2 weeks before Christmas! This Christmas, he repeated his request, but I didn't have the money, so I promised him I would make it for graduation. So, graduation is looming ever near, so it's getting close to time to start stitching! I can't find the pattern I'm using online (he was going through my crochet magazines and found the afghan he wanted). But this is what a log cabin quilt block looks like:
