Nourishing myself by...

...getting all 130 squares of my granny rose garden afghan joined.

This is part of my Yarny Madness - 2013 Year of Projects. The only rule was: You must choose ONE pattern or project just for YOU! We all do things for everyone else and often times don't ever get around to doing that one project you really love. So let this year, 2013, be the year you bless yourself. It is vowing to complete that one project that you've always wanted to do but never made time for like a Wooleater Blanket, Daisies in a Sea of Blue, Military Afghan,etc.

For me, it was my rose garden. It isn't complete yet as I still need to weave in the ends as well as add a border.
