WIP...American Flag Blanket/ Award

What a lovely Sunday. I sure did pick the right time to take a 4 day weekend!! :)
I wanted to share with you the blanket I had told you about earlier. I started this several months back for Jeremy's Aunt Penny. Her entire house is decorated in American Flags, so when I came across this pattern in  an old book of mine I couldn't resist.

These aren't the greatest pictures but will have to do. The blanket is pretty big. My bed is a queen size and it hangs over the edge on either side. This pattern has been fairly easy and should have been completed a long time ago. I can be such a procrastinator. :0)

The lovely Clara has awarded me with this Stylish Blogger Award. Please visit her wonderful site here clarascrochetroom . The crafty ideas she comes up with are amazing and her instructions are written so well and easy to understand. I'm sure you will love it.

The rules state that I must tell you 7 things about here goes!

1. I dream of moving to Alaska once both our children graduate.We can't seem to convince the rest of the family this would be a good idea..:)
2. I have a thing for Dolphins...the ones that swim in the ocean and the football team, GO MIAMI!
3. My birthday is the day after my moms. She spent her entire 25th birthday in labor with me.
4. I'm the shortest person in our house at 5"5, and have been since my son was 11, how sad :)
5. I enjoy reading, football, fishing, sewing, crochet and spending time with my family.
6. To keep us all in touch and close, once a week we all have dinner together. We take turns hosting it at each others homes. This includes laws, sisters, cousins, aunts, nephews...that's a lot of people to have together :)
7. I got my first sewing machine for Christmas when I was 13 yrs old. Only thing I knew how to make then was scrunchies :)
Now to pass on to the most fabulous blogs...
