Went Junkin' - 1970's (early 1980's?) Crochet Daisy Afgahn

Let's see, orange, harvest gold and brown... What's your guess, late 70's or early 80's? For some reason this handmade lap afghan tugged at my heart strings at the thrift store and I just had to bring it home:@) I can't imagine the amount of time (and love) that went into making this cute little blanket. Love, love, love the 3D flower centers and I was amazed that after many washes it was in perfect condition. I'm tickled to have this perky fun throw over the back of a chair in my livingroom this spring!

Find something fun and have a happy weekend:@)

  4. My husband came to our marriage with a quilt with those same colors----but it was a whole lot of ugly! This one is really pretty---great find.
