About three years ago I was at a garage sale and I came across a hand made daisy blanket. I just loved the pattern and the cheerful colors. The lady wanted $10.00 for the blanket and at the time I did not want to spend that much money on an old blanket. I have regretted not getting that blanket ever since. I would think of it sometimes when I would look at crocheted blankets at the thrift stores and I would kick myself for not getting it. Well I went to one of the little local thrift stores this past week, and low and behold THERE was my blanket. It was a bit smaller but the pattern and colors were exactly the same. Guess what I did? I LEFT IT THERE! ugh! I don't know why I did it I just did. So a few days went by and I could not stop thinking about that silly blanket. I hopped in my truck and drove back over the thrift store hoping it had not sold. I walked in and there was my happy daisy blanket waiting for me on the rack. I snatched it up and gave the lady my $10.00. I think it is a bit ironic that I ended up paying the same amount for this blanket. Oh well! I finally have my daisy blanket and I love it.
I just love the detail on this blanket. Someone put a lot of love and time into making it.
