Finally Completed-Elena's Ghan

Finished it up tonight and yes, she loves it. Made with Lion Brand Cotton Ease, a Clover H hook and winged like crazy. Yarn amounts are: Bubblegum Pink 3 skeins, Pistachio 2 skeins, Pineapple 2 skeins, Popsicle Blue 2 skeins, Vanilla 1 skein, Plum 1 skein and Orangeade 1 skein. I opted to not do the applique heart. Finished size is 50" x 45".

In case you can't read the sign Elena made it says "I *heart* my blanket"













All pics are clickable
and yes, Elena sure has a lot of stuff out in the living room tonight

The center block is a dc (because I thought I would add an applique) and the side rectangles are a sedge type stitch, sc/dc in same stitch, sk 2 ch.
