My passion for overlay crochet started with the Mandala Madness. It blossomed as I crocheted the Peacock Tail Bag, but became an obsession with the Demelza CAL. When the yarn kit for the Demelza CAL arrived I knew right away it would be created for my Mom. Her favorite color has always been yellow and the color yellow in this blanket can be seen throughout. I could hardly resist the temptation to give it to her, but I maintained patience and waited until Sunday.
She was so excited to open the box..
She knew I had made the blanket for her and had seen some of the squares here and there. I quit posting on the blog as the blanket started to take shape so as not to spoil the surprise. I am glad I did as the look on her face was priceless.
We have been having some cooler weather here in So. Cal so I am hopeful she will be getting a bit of use from it now. I love you Mom!
