Too many new projects...

Oh well... I have new-projectitis! I can't help myself, tho! Here's the newest...

The blocks are the infamous "Willow Block" from the 200 Blocks book, but only in 1 solid color. It's off-white in Caron Simply soft. The fabric on the bottom is super soft fleece that I bought from Hancock's for only $4.00 a yard. I purchased 2 yards and am going to try somehow to back the squares with the fleece. It's for my best friend for Christmas, so I'd better keep at it!

Oh, and don't you just love the cute vintage sewing basket in the upper corner of the picture??? It was a present from Momma that she found at an estate sale or thrift shop (I can never keep track of where she finds all her goodies) :) I love it!!!

The blocks are stunning! And that basket...too cute. Reminds me of my very first sewing basket, a Christmas gift when I was about 8 or 9 years old. Your mom was sure nice to give that to you!

This afghan is beautiful!! I haven't crocheted in many years but am thinking about taking it up again. Do you think this is too difficult for a "beginner"?? If not, where can I get the pattern?
