In 1979 my husband (then fiance) left for Finland for a two year mission for our church. The day after he left, I started to crochet this bedspread. It took me six months to complete as obviously I didn't work on it non stop. For many years it was on our bed, but it has now been brought out of storage and adorns the bed in our guest room. I have done the odd small crochet project throughout the years, but nothing of this scale. As I have been working on the baby blanket I have remembered not only how relaxing crochet is, but how wonderful the item
feels in your hands as it grows! It's amazing what you can create out of a ball of wool! This bedspread will be a family heirloom. So I guess with three children, I'd better start making some more stuff! Time to leaf through the patterns for the next project after the blanket.
Have a lovely day!
