Just a quick little Sunday evening post to let everyone know I am progressing with my blanket. I couldn't stand it and had to sew together some of the octagons to see how it was going to look. I Like it Much!! I am so anxious for warm sunny weather to get here so I can get pictures of it outside in the proper light. Here it has a purple/pinkish look. Red is so hard to photograph. It is truly red!
