July Gifted Gorgeousness

I am waaaaay behind in getting this gift done...and I still have one more to finish.  But...here is July's gifted gorgeousness entry.  My husband's niece had a baby a couple of months ago and I'm finally finishing up this afghan.  I struggled (it was a new pattern) and had to frog, re-crochet, frog and re-crochet a few times.  But...it's finally done.  They probably won't need this until cooler weather anyway, but I should have had it done sooner.  My husband's nephew's wife also had a baby a couple of weeks later, and I'm finally getting started on that one.  Anyway...long story short, here's the first one, done just in time for this SAL.



I also stitched July's Delphiniums from Cottage Garden Samplings.  This chart belongs to a friend of mine who has been letting me borrow the patterns.  I changed a lot of the colors, just for the fun of it.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The crochet looks lovely.
