A little progress and a finish

Over the weekend I finished working on a crocheted afghan for (shhh) our grandson for Christmas.  He's just starting to play with Duplo and if our son has anything to do with it, he'll be a huge Lego fan as he gets older.  


Pattern is a free one from the Red Heart
site, called 'Building Blocks Throw'.
It can also be found on Ravelry.

And another stitched postcard front...

That is a really fun and colorful crochet quilt. Lovely postcards you are stitching. Prayers continue for all the fire fighters, victims and support personnel.

That's one colorful afghan!! I've been making gifts for the newly born grandson of a friend and so anything related to babies have to be checked out. Thank you for the link!!

Wow! A friend gave me great advice while I was expecting my first son. Buy toys you want to play with. Duplos followed by Legos as he got older was my solution. :) So, I have to say I LOVE the afghan you crocheted. (I don't need another project, but my mom does want to teach me to crochet... Tempting!) What a lucky grandson! Your postcard is gorgeous. You do such pretty work!

How cool it that! He's gonna love it. How clever. I still have the lego I played with as a child and then of course my children lego got added. Never throwing that away.

Love the Lego bright colours and blanket itself. Good season for the gift- while it's so cold.
I like your postcards- all 3. couldn't leave a comment on the others.

Oh he's going to love that. My sons were huge Lego fans and now my granddaughter is too. They have some cute sets for little girls.
