This is the first project I ever wanted to make. I won't say how many years it took to finally get it to this point, but it was a while.

I love it! Every once in a while a project just really takes my eye! This is one that does just that. Great job -- hard to beleive it is a first project. I did not start out so well but over the years finally got here. :) Whoever gets to use this afghan will surely have their day brightened.
