A few days ago I received this  heartfelt thank-you note from a little girls mother that had been hospitalized. I was touched that she took the time to pass this note on to me and say how much they cherish the blanket. This little note  makes every single crochet stitch in every blanket, more than worth it. ❤

This No-Sew Blanket is  an easy way to  make  a blanket for Project Linus or any charity organization you may be involved with. My husband and I had only one argument when we made this “Flower Power Blanket” . Here is a very simple video that shows how  easy  it is to make a  No- Sew Blanket. 43×55

Kaleidoscope of Happiness

I call this the “Kaleidoscope of Happiness” blanket, hoping to bring happiness and comfort to a small child. I made this blanket using a Solid Granny Square Pattern for the first time . A very easy pattern that works up nicely,  just crochet like you would a  regular square, but just kept going to a desired size. I also used the picot stitch for the edging, that was also new to me. 43×43
