It's gorgeous!!! I am in awe!

(Now that I'm retired, I make very elementary, very basic-stitches, afghans/ blankets. I retired in January, and so far I've finished one for a friend that I'd started years ago, and have started and finished 3 kid-sized blankets for hospital donations.)

I only know basic stitches. All of my afghans are made of chain-stitch, single-crochet, and double-crochet, with the only variations being in how I arrange them (like the circular medallion in the center of the central blue square in this afghan, which is just double crochets interspersed with chain stitches, instead of the groupings of three double-crochet with one chain stitch in between, or three chain stitch on a corner, and then I add another row of single-crochet all around to give it a more finished appearance, and use some single crochet in place of double-crochet in the next row in a different color, when I need to 'square the circle').

I've been meaning to see about donating lap-sized afghans and/or baby afghans, since I like to crochet but have a limited number of people to whom to give the finished products, by this time. Thanks!
