It has been a cold week here, not the coldest yet but we are staying warm whenever we get the chance to be home. The best way to add more warmth and color to my non-colored rooms is to add more afghans. This one is also serving another purpose as it is wrapped around the bottom of the Christmas tree. Emily couldn't wait until this tree finally was put up...took me 2 days! She likes to put her paws underneath this afghan, not sure if she is just warming her paws or searching for gifts?
