I've decided to corner the afghan market.
It's part of my philosophy:
If something is worth doing,
it's worth overdoing!
Sometimes I get very lucky thrifting and
find several hand crocheted afghans.
So I pile them all into my cart,
I check them over carefully and pick
the very best ones.
Blue, White, Cobalt- 60x54
w/2" Fringe all around
Faith Farm Ministries was having a huge sale.
I got 8 that day. Too good to pass up.
They needed the cash and I was happy to
contribute. Everybody wins!
Granny Squares-Blue Multi-40x40
I couldn't wait to get them home and
throw them in the wash with a nice
Downy April Fresh rinse.
They are wonderfully soft.
This one has a pretty 5" fringe.
Light Blue and White-40x62
w/ 5" Fringe at ends
Light and Royal Blue Granny Squares- 80x50
Lucky is in charge of quality control.
This one has great Fall colors.
Colorful Multi-Color Stripes 56x50
I stacked it here on my copper pot.
It brings out the colors in the oil painting
Original Oil on canvas bought in
Napa, CA. May 2009 trip
(thrift shop $8.00)
Royal Blue, Orange, Lime Green
Zig-Zag Stripes on Cream Body-72x60
A bold color combination.
Red and White are Dynamite-44x78
Perfect for Christmas, Valentine's Day,
Memorial Day thru 4th of July.
Here it is at the back of the sofa in the
red, white and blue for summer family room.
Or just tossed over the end of the sofa.
Lucky's on break in his favorite basket.
Blues with Creamy White Zig-Zag 40x64
I tossed that one on the back of the other
sofa. I'm waiting for...a dark and stormy night.
Now you are all wondering just how much
these on-sale-bargain-afghans cost,
aren't you? Ready.....
They were......$2.50 each!
Definitely Thrifty Throws.
