My crocheted blanket

I knew the postman was paying me a visit on Thursday and I waited impatiently till he arrived to deliver my package. A few weeks ago I participated in a giveaway over at My Girl Thursday and guess what? I was drawn the winner! Yay! :p I won an adorable crocheted blanket made by sweet Trisha, the lady behind Veranilles.

She also sent some treats in these plastic eggs :p, which, needless to say, are gone by now, haha. Aren't they cute?

I'm excited to own this crocheted blanket because it takes me back to the old days. My grandma used to crochet blankets for my sister and me when we were kids. They are all in my house in Argentina and God knows in what condition!

It's called the baby blanket, but I'm going to use it for myself on chilly days, as a picnic blanket or just have it displayed at home :).

Don't hesitate to go say hi to Trisha and visit her etsy; she sells crocheted blankets as well as vintage objects.

Thank you so much, Trisha! ;D

Happy Monday, everybody! Have a great week! ;D

I love searching at all the photos of crochet blanket patterns. I do this initial to see what I would love to have all over my unique house and then see if I can achieve the crochet blanket styles.
