The Making of An Afghan

Last month I started making an afghan...  don't ask me why.. i don't know heh..

I thought I'd just show you the beginning pattern and when I'm done I'll show you the finished product. Ummm.. and I finished before I ever posted the beginning heh..  Here's the basic pattern:

Oct. 23..

I have to admit it... this was the first time I attempted "flowers"  It wasn't bad except for all the sewing it on ..I can't sew to save my life!

Today will be a double post so there are some pond pictures below this post!

Pat, that is GORGEOUS! I even loved it before the flowers! I've NEVER done anything as fancy as that -- but I'd love to give it a try. What is the pattern called?
