Two Become One

The two quarters of the afghan have been sitting on the side in the front room, waiting for me to sew them together.  If there was to be any chance of putting them away and tidying up, the needle had to come out and the two side put together.
 It didn't take too long to do, compared with the length of time it took to put the row together.  The longest time was taken up with sewing in all the end.
I now have half an afghan.  As it's now too big to put aside on my portfolio that holds my stitching etc, it's now hanging over the end of my bed.  At least I can get to enjoy looking at it from time to time, even if I can't use it yet.

Another crochet project has now been sewn up too.
The purple jacket is finished and just needs a decorative pin to use for fastening.  The next crochet pattern has been picked out, but I think it will be a little time yet before I get the yarn for it and begin.  There is some knitting to be done first.

Gorgeous colors in your afghan. Working in the ends is always the biggest pain on these block by block types.
