Another Giant Granny Square Blanket

 Good morning :)  Last week I couldn't help myself .. I started a new blanket. I am making another giant granny square blanket. The yarn is all red heart except the watermelon color. That color is from Michaels.
 I wanted to go with a summery color scheme .. and I wanted something I didn't have to think while making it :)

 Its getting bigger !
I got this pillow cover at Hobby LObby with my 40% off coupon , It was $4.00 and change after the coupon. I got this broach in the wedding department and cut the button off the pillow cover and pinned the broach on. The pin was $2.50 ( 50% 0ff) so for under $7.00 I got a new pillow .. I have to go back and get another set for the other chair. I don 't think I could have made one for that much money !

Thanks for your visit and nice comments ! Hope you all have a great week!

Great new blanket - I love those patterns that don't take a lot of thought. Feel like I can be present for others without much counting. This one is so pretty and that pillow...gorgeous!

Oh, love the colors of the new blanket. You amaze me at how fast you can make one! The pillow was a great bargain. No, you could not have made one for that. Fabric is getting so pricey. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Such a pretty blanket! I love the idea of just crocheting away without worrying about pattern too much. That little sweetie curled up in there is adorable :)
xo, Andrea

Great job on the afghans.

I like the bright colors on your afghan granny square!
The bling on you pillow is pretty too. I don't think you could have made it any cheaper either. :)
great job.

Love the little cutie nestled in the afghan!!

Thanks for stopping by! When I decorated the white tree for Easter, I had noticed that you could see through the branches and see the wall behind the tree even though it was loaded with decorations so that is why I thought of the tule... It blends in with the tree and it does make it look fuller...
