Afghan WIP

Thank you for your e-mails & comments re. this afghan. I did finish the corner block + started one of 2 bird blocks.
To respond to questions:
-I think this is still available for purchase.
-I'm using Anchor floss, 4 strands. It is charted for Medici or DMC floss. IMO perle cotton #5 & Watercolours would work, too. I'm changing some of the colors ... well, just because.
-I use an 11" x 11" Quilt 'N Go Lap Frame [by Prym-Dritz Corp] which is similar to q-snap for the area I'm stitching. I bought the frame from a fabric store a few years ago. The afghan cloth rests on my lap while I stitch. It works for me.
-Yes, I think it makes a difference if the motif is not centered. I'm being very careful to get the motif centered before I launch into the stitching!!

We are on our second snow day. The boys are thrilled to be home. They were scheduled 1/2 day on Thurs -- off on Fri & following Monday. They are getting a longer Winter vacation than expected. It snowed ALL DAY yesterday & today we are supposed to get about 1-3" of lake effect snow. The problem is the high winds which cause the blowing & drifting.

Your afghan is beautiful! I have some alphabet charts that are meant for an afghan. I may just have to pull those out! Love yours!
