The 2014 Christmas Afghans

Hello all!  I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season.  I know it is late but Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!  I have missed blogging but family and home has had to come first and the time has been limited for blogging. So instead of writing posts I have spent the time I have had to visit and read your blogs, although I have not always commented I have enjoyed seeing what you have all been up to the last couple of months.

In case you do not remember, because it has been so long since I have blogged, last year I crocheted along with Moogly's biweekly 12 inch block.  I crocheted in two different color ways and managed to get two afghans put together in time to gift for Christmas.  This first one I gave to my Mom-in-love.

She was pretty happy!
Some close ups.

The second one was shipped off to my mother just in time for Christmas.  It arrived by mail with just a couple of days to spare.  I think my sis forgot to take the requested picture of mom opening but here is what I took before I sent it out.

It was hard to take pictures of these afghans.  I stood on a chair to get the complete picture and then decided to take pictures of sections.

I also started an afghan for my father-in-law for Christmas.  It did not get finished but we wrapped and then I had to take it back. It is getting close to finished so I can re-gift it back to him.

I have missed you all and have a few things I hope to get back to share with you.  Hope you are all having a great week.  Blessings from our home in the woods!

They are beautiful! So envious that you can create that with your own two hands. I'm sure your family loved them!
