Crochet Pattern Review ~Butterfly Garden Afghan Block
First of all ~ Get your free copy of this fantastic and fun crochet pattern here.
The Crochet Butterfly Afghan Block is designed by Dearestdebi. Be sure to like her on Facebook to keep up to date with her current designs. 

I recently had the pleasure to test out this amazing pattern.
Using yarn from my stash, and armed with a 6.5 mm hook I plugged away at this wonderful creation by Dearestdebi.
I used a variety of yarns so my square turned out larger than Debi's. I know when I make more of these squares I would love to try using the yarns she has listed in her patterns. Like many others, I am trying to use up some of my ever growing yarn stash.


This pattern is extremely well written and includes great photos to help with construction. Debi did a fantastic job designing this pattern, as she always does. 
To be able to create something so beautiful takes a beautiful mind, patience and alot of time. It is truly a labour of love that you too can create in only a few hours. Seriously! I finished mine in less than a day, while my kidlets were away at school. I took breaks. Lots of breaks, but if I were to time it, it would have been under 3 hours.

My daughter absolutely loves the little butterflies that hover over the flowers in this garden of roses. She had a friend over the other day that was amazed by the beautiful design. She begged me to make one for her dolly. Wouldn't that be a fabulous Christmas gift? I personally would love to make a pillow with this one. It would look great alongside my Twist & Shake Square Pillow that I created using my Twist & Shake Square.

Do you love this pattern as much as I do?

A C2C Review + My Twist & Shake Square Pillow
Recently I injured my back. I had lots of time to rest while waiting to see a Chiropractor.

I decided I needed a quick and easy crochet pattern to make a blanket for my daughter's birthday. I found the C2C (Corner to Corner) Throw pattern >HERE<
I used yarn from my stash, to match the pillow I created from my Twist & Shake Square pattern.
