I finally finished joining the squares from the Play Misty For Me swap. I think this swap was in 2009....oh, my. Glad I finally finished it!
The squares made and sent were all in the Misty group of colors in Vanna's Choice. I chose only 3 colors (not unusual for me) in what I thought would look more western - and asked for that type of square .... Indian-ish. I think I was lucky to get the most beautiful squares "evah"!
I finished the border of the afghan with the stitch I mentioned in the previous post - but did not name - that was used in Edie Eckman's books. It is called the Tower Stitch that some person she knew started using and named it such. I really like the way it compliments the afghan without making it girlie (will be shared by Pam's hubby) like an ordinary granny border as it turn sideways a bit.
Can you see the resemblance to the Rick Rack Stitch?
I'm very excited to see how they like it! Nice to start the new year with something finished so nicely.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS!
May your blessings be many, and your troubles be few - and may only good things happen for you.
